Detailed description

We’re delighted to offer this beautiful standard Laser blue 1999 Phase 3 V70R from stock,currently held in Japan awaiting reservation,with a mere 62,477 miles from new and in super conditon throughout this V70R still has the impact it did nearly 20 years ago when this model was introduced.Handpicked by our partners at Newera Imports Japan on the ground who live and breath the Japanese car scene so you can rest assured of the best quality possible.We are confident that this standard example will delight its new owner!

Launched in May 1997 to replace the outgoing 850R the V70R is considered by many to be one of the best fast estates of the 90’s.This phase 3 model Volvo V70R AWD is a superb all round performance car capable of  handling the weekly shop with ease and then reaching over 150mph where conditions allow.This example finished in beautiful Laser Blue metallic is clearly an example in unique condition throughout. It has been owned & used since new only on Japan's salt-free & pristinely maintained roads. Paintwork is visibly stunning on this example. Highly reflective with a deep glossy shine, its evident this V70R has always been kept under a car port or garaged by its previous mature owner and was cared for throughout it’s time in Japan. The laser blue paint is the most sought after colour of all on these and suits this car very well looking rather purposeful for a modern classic Volvo.

Note that it's completely rust free throughout inclusive of the underside. Underneath its like new (See pictures of the underside condition & original (yes, after 17 years!) - standard exhausts). Original alloys also still have ZERO corrosion on them fitted with NS-R new sports tyres of 215/45R17 size) Powered by Volvo’s superb 2.4L VVT five pot B5244T2 engine producing 265bhp and 258Ibs ft torque channelled through an adaptive 5 speed automatic gearbox and an  advanced four wheel drive system the V70R AWD is an immensely capable car in all weathers.

As pictures show this is a car that's got pin straight lines on it's flanks. There are zero pin dents, which is a testimony to the care this car's had. It's so well preserved throughout, it still looks near new some 18 years after it rolled off the production line. Whilst detailing this car, we noticed a few small blemishes, as to be expected of a car of this age: There's  is a small touched-in are on the front n/s bumper corner.This will be professionally repaired as part of our preparation in UK.. These have been thoughtfully touched-in by the previous owner but we will have them professionally re-done to present the car perfectly to its new UK owner.

Interior as pictures show is in fantastic condition throughout showing minimal wear and a great patina. The heated leather/alcantara diamond stitched seats are in superb condition, there are no cigarette burns or stains either. Steering wheel is unworn, as is the shift lever - similarly near new. This example  was a non-smoker's car. Floor mats are also in excellent condition, which indicates to us that this car was mainly used in the city and the carpet on the boot floor is still like new, indicating this car wasn't used for load carrying much - if ever.

Late model V70R AWD’s  are superb  to drive with in our opinion some of the most comfatable seats ever fitted to a car and simply superb on a long journey.Handling for a large estate is fantastic with a taut chassis ,steering feeling is great and the 4WD provides immense security in all weathers. the charismatic 5-pot 20V engine is smooth and powerful and provides plenty of overtaking punch when needed,the 5-speed adaptive automatic gearbox shifts smoothly and precisely and is a real pleasure to use,just smooth refined progress.Interiors are squeak and rattle free and the whole feeling is of a car that is incredibily solid and surefooted.If you looking for a fast and practical eye catching estate to cover all bases in your day to day life this stunning V70R  could be the pefect choice.

Costing £38,000 when new in 2000 this is a lot of estate for the money! Miguel has given this example a thorough test drive in Japan and reports it drives as a very good example should  and without fault.This V70R comes with original manuals and service history(Volvo Japan). It had it's timing belt replaced at 42,894km, well before it was worn out. It's clearly been very well cared for by it’s previous mature owner.  The overall condition of this example is fantastic and we are confident this car will go to someone who truly appreciates the Phase 3 V70R and wants the very best.Only around 500 Phase-3 models of the V70R were ever made for sale (for worldwide supply incl. the U.S.) and with only around 70 of those sold in the UK, these are rare cars on the road nowadays.
