Ever since I found out that Volvo was bringing the V70R back I've been lusting for it. Does anyone know when it is expected to arrive here in the States, and what the price range will be?

Welcome. <p>The V70Rs will start arriving in March 2003. You better get lined up ASAP if you want one withing the next 12 months; Volvo will only produce about 5,000 (globally) S60Rs and V70Rs for MY2003...just do the math. Prices? Don't be greedy, now! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> Don't you have enough information about the car, already? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> Anyway, prices will/should be announce just before the Holidays. The V70R should not exceed $45K. But again, if you are "lusting" after one you better put a deposit fairly soon or you may be looking at a 2004 model...<p>Yannis

Re: Anyone know when the V70R will be available here in the States? (GrecianVolvo)

Thanks for the info and the welcome. I spend most of my time on the TT forum but since seeing the V70R...well...I already said that. Guess I better hustle on down to the dealer and at least get in the queue. I was hoping to do a Euro delivery sometime next summer.

That tax sounds a bit imposing. <p>Welcome Wendy. Nice to have another Volvophile on the board who's also sweet on Audi. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>George

Wendy,<p>Welcome to <b><FONT COLOR="blue">Swedespeed!</FONT></b><p>How about that V70R in <b><FONT COLOR="red">RED</FONT></b>? Pretty sweet IMHO. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.imakenews.com/autospies/word_images/6212192_image002.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>-Drew

Re: Anyone know when the V70R will be available here in the States? ([email protected])

Thanks, George. It certainly is an obsession. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> Hope I can bring some value here...although I'm not too technical. I rely on my husband for that. He's into the older Volvos..122s & 1800s and usually hangs out on the Brickboard.<p>Don't know if you've ever visited the Swedish Embassy Vintage Volvo pages but you'll find some amusing reading there as well as good tech info for those classics.<p>

Arrest Me, Red? Very pretty, but I think I'll go for something a bit more sedate <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> I like that funky green color.

Re: Anyone know when the V70R will be available here in the States? (Kaizai)

Welcome to Swedespeed Forum! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> I really want the V70R myself for next year. Time to trade in the 99 Passat I have. <p>That red is a bit too bright for me. Make it a nice Amulet Red, ala the A6 Avant and it'll be much better, IMO of course.<p>I'm with Kaizai on the Cosmos Blue Metallic with blue interior. That one will be sweet! That might be the color combo I will be going for. Another choice would be the Grey Mettalic with the blue interior..that looks pretty slick from the pictures.<p>Should I be buying a first year car? Or should I wait for the 2nd year? Just worried about potential problems with a first year car, that's all.<p>Ron

Just as a side note everyone, I am 99% sure that the red V70R above is <b>Photoshopped</b>, so I am not sure what the actual "RED" color is going to look like. I think that it will look more like the Audi S4 RED. The one above looks a bit too orangish-red to me.<p>-Drew
