Hey guys up for sale is my 2005 S60R. I am in the process of buying a house, and Its time to move to a truck. The car is a blast to drive, I wish I didnt have to let it go.<p>35k miles<br>Magic Blue<br>AWD<br>5 cyl turbo 300hp<br>Gobi leather interior<br>5 speed auto with manual shift and sport mode<br>Only mods are a K&N drop in air filter<br>Adjustable 4c suspension<p>Car is in great condition, it is a daily driver, so it has a couple reeeealy small paint chips etc, definitely nothing major and there are no flaws with the car whatsoever. Has newish tires, I just bought the car from Roger Beasley Volvo in Austin,TX last October but unfortunately I need a truck for some upcoming projects. I don't have the exact import numbers for the U.S. but the cars are pretty rare. Here are some details about the model and a couple pictures. Looking for $21k. Car has a warranty until may or june of 2011 or 100k miles, that I'll look into to see if it is transferable.<p>First introduced in 2003, Volvo's S60 R boasted AWD (Haldex) mated to a 300 hp (220 kW) / 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) engine. 2004-2005 models came with a 6-speed manual transmission, as well as a 5-speed automatic which allowed only 258 lb·ft (350 N·m) torque in 1st and 2nd gears. 2006-2007 models were available with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 2006-2007 Automatic Transmission allowed for the full torque of 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) in all gears. Other aspects which drew the R apart from standard S60's were the four piston brakes (BREMBO) front and rear, optional 18" 5 spoke "Pegasus" wheels, blue faced "R" gauges, standard HID headlights, as well as the 4C suspension system. (4C stands for "continuously controlled chassis concept") The 4C feature allowed the user to select from three modes; Comfort, Sport, and Advanced. This tightened the suspension progressively, and also made for a more aggressive throttle response when in "Advanced" mode. This is easily accomplished due to the fact the throttle is drive by wire, meaning the throttle is connected to the accelerator pedal via electronics instead of a traditional cable design. This allows for different throttle maps to be in place, which can be electronically altered to give a different feel when the accelerator is depressed. The S60 R continued the tradition of "R" cars for Volvo beginning in 1995 with the introduction of the 850 T-5 R.<p>Here is a link to information about the car, it says a lot more about the model than I would be able to haha. <A HREF="http://www.carenthusiast.com/reviews/article/951/-/2005-Volvo-S60+R/.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.carenthusiast.com/r....html</A><p><IMG SRC="http://www.mustangmods.com/ims/u/1622/13769/270677.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.mustangmods.com/ims/u/1622/13769/283286.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I will get more detailed pics up later. If Interested or have any questions, please email me at [email protected] Thanks!<p>
