that changed Volvo forever, it marked a turning point for the brand and when the

quickly due to virtual zero availability. The build quality is legendary, characterful

a no risk four-wheel financial investment, get in fast, low mileage one owner examples
do not come about often, if at all.

Winter Pack

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 Green 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 and a Gold
fleck through the paint. The alloys are excellent with 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 32 mpg on the run, tried and
tested. This is an awesome driver even for a 23-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 5-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.
