Ripspeed S/S Exhaust
Big White Fuelling System (See Below)
Superb Documented Servicing
Sensational Condition
Very Rare & Appreciating
The Ultimate Q Car
144 Picture Spread

Delivered and pre delivery inspected by Romans Volvo of Bath on 18/08/95 and
first registered to the first owner on 31/08/95. No less that 21 services detailed
in the original service booklet and as the car has got older the servicing has
been in depth and preventative (see images). Every mot right back to the very
first one in 1998 with a total of 20 separate mot certificates all neatly
arranged in a presentation folder amongst many historic invoices dating all the
way back. The cambelt was changed at 111k, new oil just put in - Shell Helix
ultra oil being used and the engine flushed routinely. The mileage on the
odometer is totally irrelevant such is the wonderfully preserved condition.

Performance Tuning - " You wont find another like this anywhere"
Aside the pristine condition this is not only an exclusive T5 its a Volvo that
I am very excited about. Professional upgrading has transformed an already quick
saloon into a genuine modern day performance road car with no compromise to
reliability or comfort, it is they say a stone cold sleeper. Rica ECU 280 bhp
upgrade with the fuelling system upgraded with Big White injectors to be fully
compatible with the remap taking the power beyond the R version by a considerable
margin, when called upon this car would levae the R for dead. This is all
certificated with letter of recommendation for reference and designed to run on
98 Ron fuel. 40 mm lowering springs recently refreshed, and a wonderful sounding
Ripspeed stainless steel exhaust system with a mid sports note to bring the fabulous
5 cylinder burble to the fore. 17 " Titan alloys finish the exterior. The new coil
springs provide a wonderful ride with no harsh feel. The manual gearbox is a must,
the automatic blunts the power, chalk and cheese. What a car, the mid range power
is truly remarkable, it blasts past other road users, the exhaust note is evocative
unleashing that 5 pot burble the Ripseed is a truly great exhaust system.

Modern Classic Rising
A car that is deemed collectible regardless of age, the T5 was simply a car
that changed Volvo forever, it marked a turning point for the brand and when the
T5 debuted it was a marvel, quickly being embraced by the police for its outright
speed and indestructible longevity. As an ownership proposition these cars are now
totally depreciation proof and are in truth rising in value due to virtual zero
availability, quite simply there are none for sale at time of writing making this
cosseted example even more obscure. The build quality is legendary, characterful
drive and sound and unmistakable 90s looks. This is a guaranteed future classic and
a quick search of classifieds reveal no other car such as this available on the
market with how many left suggesting that as few as maybe 20 T-5 manuals are left
in existence. This is a no risk four wheel financial investment, get in fast.

The bodywork really is in fantastic condition for any car never mind one this
age. The cabin is all perfect and everything works exactly as it should.
The paint is stunning virtually without any marks at all other than the
merest of stone chips and a speckles to the front bumper which are almost
invisible. The deep Red Volvo paint literally blazes in the sun and is beautiful
after a high def shine, it is jaw droppingly nice with a wet look finish. The
alloys are as split new with matching new premium branded tyres. The engine bay
is expertly detailed and the impression is that of an extremely clean highly
detailed car, which it is. The underside defies belief, the engine sump and
gearbox are bone dry.

Super fast and the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing, capable of superb
performance if and when required and excellent traction & grip though
equally with the ability to return an incredible 36 mpg on the run, tried and
tested. This is an awesome driver even for a 22 year old car, however that was
how they were made, to last. Not a knock or a bang from any suspension components,
no disappointment, all electrics in excellent working order including computer
functions, drives and presents like a 3 year old vehicle with no weak areas in
any way. Begs to be driven and used only if the next owner is prepared to maintain
the extremely high standards it has become accustomed to.
