Hello all, up for sale here is my unicorn of an S60 R. The car currently has 189k miles and will slowly climb as I use it to commute on rainy days (when it's sunny and dry I'm on my bike). If you're reading this then you probably know the rarity of the color combination, especially paired with the M66 manual transmission. The AWD is fully functional and is great for commuting during the winter and getting me and my significant other and friends to and from Mount Hood. I had Blackstone Labs test my oil and the results were them telling me my car was "the picture of health". Dyno'd at Surgeline Tuning in Tualatin recently, showing AWD WHP 255, WTQ 277 (over 300 at the crank).
Stock OEM 18" Pegasus wheels, heated front seats, rain sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, HU-850 premium audio and 300W amp.
A wiring harness has been installed to easily plug in a double din stereo of your choosing, and I will also include the Metra faceplate kit so you can install any aftermarket double din head unit and have it look oem.
The car is a joy to drive overall. I've driven WRXs, STIs, Evos, and while this car is not as fast or raw feeling as those, it accomplishes exactly what it set out to do. It's a comfortable, mature, sporty, luxury sedan that can pass all the economy commuters on the road, get you to the mountain and back safely, and has plenty of space for bringing stuff home.

A couple of events that happened over the course of my ownership:
- In 2017 I hit a deer going a little under 35 mph. Completely repaired with new OEM parts besides a used headlight and radiator support bracket. Besides the small bend in the front bumper by the grill, you wouldn't know it ever happened, also did not go through insurance so it's a clean title. I have a list of parts used and cost if needed.
- In the summer of 2018, my water pump seized and the timing belt jumped off the pulley. Turns out the previous owner had used a HEPU brand water pump, which I will never use. Based on the cost of reviving the original engine, I decided to transplant in the "holy grail of Volvo engines", the B5244T5 out of a late model P2 S60 T5. So the car now has a much more stout engine for power upgrades, along with OEM head gasket, belts, pulleys, etc. I have receipts for all the work done at The V Shop.
