Re: Can Anyone Confirm MY2007 R models discontinued (w1ntson)

I heard it is going to have a turbo version of the new I6 putting out 350 hp with a RWD bias on the haldex...

Is that why your rating dropped to 90%......for starting vicious rumors?

I can't tell you where I heard it (Volvo would probably void my warranty!!), but there will be an '07 R. As for changes, I was told, it will be the same changes as all '07 S60's get. I think this will mean turn signals incorporated into the sideview mirrors. Probably some minor other stuff.

Did the voices tell you if there was going to be an '07 V70R or just an S60R?

A pearl white V70R would look pretty cool IMO.

Naw, not pearl. but plain 'ol WHITE/ ATACAMA as I've said before would be AWESOME. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
I would sell mine for that

(You have no idea how much a pearl car sucks until you've owned one.
You can't touch it up, (never matches, 3 stage paint) you cannot paint one or two panels and blend, you have to paint an entire side

It fades out after a few years and if left out in the sun, it yellows

I didn't ask him, but I would assume the wagon would be continued as well.

Actually, I just made that up on the spot, since this is the 10th thread on this subject in the last few months, thought we could at least make it juicy and full or rumors.

If you wanna drive a creamsicle, be my guest.


Maybe Volvo could even 'sprinkle' it with extra toppings...I mean options.

I have an Acura painted in this stuff and as JRL correctly states the color is impossible to match. (I gave up and just dab on plain Honda white now). Plain white is the easiest color to match, the pearl white is the hardest. Which is probably why if Volvo ever made white available on the R it would be the pearl. I would grit my teeth and still order it, though. It looks great for the first 6 months!

I think that the "special edition" 850 Turbo JRL showed me for my kid was white pearl ... it actually didn't look too bad at all, although the car had obviously been garaged.

The Arctic White S60s on base here look REALLY good. I would not do a pearl on the R.

But if White is the non-metallic color, you could offer a sweet metallic red as the signture color for '07.
