For sale is an almost perfect example of what the Volvo factory should have produced as the S60 R.<p>Titanium exterior, with Nordcap Blue Interior, 6-speed manual transmission. I believe it has every factory option available. <p>Only 14,500 miles. HRE 18" rims upgraded to full polish and stainless fasteners, and new Dunlop tires. Custom body kit, spoiler, and moldings that have been painted to match. Slightly lowered, Evolve springs and sway bars. Upgraded dual ceramic ball bearing turbo, silent blow off, turbo smart stainless wastegate, braided lines, custom 3"exhaust. Upgraded 1400w stereo with hidden JL adjustable subs, and Boston Z1 speakers at the corners. Defi memory gauges. Factory navigation. <p>In all, the grand total was just north of $82,000<p>No expense was spared in the build of this car. The object of the build was to "sharpen" it up, yet make it look and perform factory in every way. <p>The increased engine performance was held moderate at around 400-420hp.<br>Except for acceleration, it drives no different than stock.<br>Fuel mileage on the freeway averages 27-29 mpg.<br>The exhaust flows much better, but is almost not audible inside the car.<br>All factory functions are intact and functioning.<br>Audio upgrades are in factory positions, being controlled with the factory face unit. Amps were built in and subs were fully hidden so full use of the trunk and pass through are permitted.<br>The car was lowered slightly but as not to impede normal "real world" road driving which has bumps, ramps, and potholes.<p>This is a daily driver in every way. Sun, rain or snow.<p>Also included are the original Pegasus rims mounted with new Blizzaks.<br>Unfortunately ? the car has never been in snow.<br>I have a small fleet of cars, so the mileage is fairly low. I am somewhat of a collector so it has always been kept in a heated facility with the other members of my stable.<p>Anyone who has seen the car in person, driven it, or rode in it, remarks about the workmanship. This even includes the dealers. <p>I hate to see the car go, but I already have vehicle #9 on its way, and I only have room for eight. Over the years I have come to terms that I no longer get attached to vehicles. I enjoy them for awhile, and then let someone else enjoy them for awhile.<p>I think $31,000 is a good starting point, but feel free to e-mail me an offer.<p>Please e-mail me with questions if you are serious. I will try to respond in a timely manor. <p>Delivery is possible in the mid-west or east.<p><br><A HREF="http://s176.photobucket.com/albums/w168/trirotor" TARGET="_blank">http://s176.photobucket.com/albums/w168/trirotor</A>/<p>I'm not quite sure how to get the pictures directly onto this post. So they are posted in Photobucket. If there is an easier, or better way, please chime in.<p>-Mark

I'm failing to see why you've priced this car $10k-$13K over market value. <p><br>If anything, mod DETRACT from the value. <p><br>

I'm still curious to know what turbo he added, or what upgrade was done to the stock one? And subsequently, the other mods to support it???<p>Theres definetly not enough info in there about the engine mods.

Has that Evolve front been modified with a piece going across the smaller openings? It looks better than the regular Evolve front.<br><IMG SRC="http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w168/trirotor/PICT0121.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.evolvecars.com/site/pictures/productpages/aerokit/IMG_4159.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

Re: 2004 S60R -Serious car. (KiotCloudkicker)

No - Kai had the work done on the openings to add the cross bars and if I recall correctly, I think the Kai's front bumper cover was fiberglass.<p>I don't recall what turbo setup Kai went with. He decided to go solo on the turbo mod and ECU programming.<p>
