2002 V70 XC Olympic Edition, anyone ever heard of this? Apparently, there were only 25 of these vehicles made by Volvo for use by the Swedish Olympic Team during the 2002 Olympics held in Salt Lake. <P>They are ORE blue and came fully loaded with cargo box and ski racks. Four of them are for sale at Ken Garff Volvo in Salt Lake City, Utah.<P> <IMG SRC="http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_ede1ee160559e7680f07d2260e9783b0/i-1.JPG"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_ede1ee160559e7680f07d2260e9783b0/i-3.JPG"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_ede1ee160559e7680f07d2260e9783b0/i-5.JPG"> <P>-Drew

Yup, they are used. Some have very low miles and some have about 2,000-4,000 miles on them. Maybe a great buy, I am not sure.<P>-Drew

Yeah, as long as the team did not took the cars out for some wild outdoor advanture and abuse the daylight outta it, I'm sure there should be many people interested in them.<P>Heck, these cars were built to go do some wild outdoor advanture. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> As long as they were not abused like what happened this past weekend at Carmax by my friend....I'll take one.<P>Hehe..first of all, gotta sell the C first. Man..only if I knew about this before my last rush decision..... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><BR>

Interesting. I notice the interior is tan, and the trim is wood. <P>Audi also did this. There are a few blue allroads floating around as well.

The original plan was for the East Coast to get Ocean Race cars and for the Midwest and Western Regions to get the Olympic Edition cars (which were the same paint but, as you showed, with Taupe Leather). The original plan called for 500 ORs and 500 Olympics. But it fell through and the rest is history. <P><BR>Yannis<BR><P>

Re: ([email protected])

I know this is an old topic...I'm trying to find out what type of cargo box this is. I'd like to get one too and have it painted to match my ORE XC. It doesn't look like the Volvo cargo box or the other typical ones can take paint like this.

Re: (MattA)

Matt,<p>It looks very similar to the Volvo/Thule Mountaineer roof box which should be available through your dealer. I recently had a Thule Evo 1600 painted to match the Polar Arctic paint on my XC without any problem. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://www.xc70.com/pics/albums/userpics/113-1333_IMG.JPG" BORDER="0"><br> <IMG SRC="http://www.xc70.com/pics/albums/userpics/Evo%201600%20Color%20Matched.JPG" BORDER="0"> <p><br><BR><BR>

Re: (MattA)

MattA,<br>that's the thule mountaineer box on the olympic cars and I'm pretty sure any box can be painted. I think the going rate for a dealer to paint a roofbox to match is less than $200 USD.

VCNA is offering a $50 rebate on their Mountaineer cargo box. It's good until Sept. 30/03. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <A HREF="http://www.volvoxc90.com/pdf/loadsystem.pdf" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvoxc90.com/pdf/loadsystem.pdf</A>

Re: (GrecianVolvo)

Sentinals should be standard on the XC IMHO. They look just right!<p>-Drew
