So I am back in Denmark to see the family and do some work for my company. So after talking to some friends and of course cars came up and prices..... I did not even know that the caR was sold in Denmark, but it is, and back in the day, the car cost 214.000$ new.
Yep taxes on car in Denmark is 180% so this is why....just wanted to let you all know how cheap your R is.


A used 2004 R with 104K miles cost's 45.000$

So enjoy your cheap R:)

wow...average salary is about $75K there, so that is a huge blow! wow...
This is much the same in most of Europe and in Asia. Cars are more for the rich rather than for the average person.

Denmark is trying to tax gasoline models out of the market. There was an article in the local AAA about Denmark's push for battery powered vehicles...

Yeah, I want to say the R was around 60,000 Euro new with few options here in Germany. So about $78,000.

Yeah no, saw one in the Frankfurt Airport in 2004, was E84,000 on the sticker, which was well over $100K at the time. Was loaded though.

I got a ride from an old friend to a train station outside Stockholm in Dec 2005. I'd had my R for 4 months and paid $35500 out the door (Sticker was $46750). He had the exact. same. R. No kidding. He picked it up in June 2005. He said he'd paid SEK 675000, just under $90K. And gas was about $8/gallon in Stockholm.

I was also near 60K€ after registration (5000EURO in Belgium) and I had a 10% dealer-personal discount back then.
BTW, don't forget that overseas R's, thus in NA I mean, ARE/were downgraded (crappy headlights, no foldingmirrors, no hu-803 standard, no heated seats standard, no IAQS standard,....)

Well, I'm not sure where you get your info about NA cars, but the only ones that are correct is the DOTSpec Headlights(about $400 cheaper each over the Eurospec; DOT $1200 rather than EURO $1600) and folding mirrors(optional and under $600 for the kit). Everything else came standard; HU-803 (2004) HU-850 (2005+), heat seats/mirrors, sunroof, IAQS (Charcoal Cabin Air Filter and that's $35 rather than $25); unless the owner opted out and got a custom built R without these options.

Why are you even listing this out? None of these even justify the added costs over in Europe, other than crappy tax that your country is applying?

My 05 VR was 70k if you built it on the Volvo of Canada website.
