I know the S70 was available in Europe with the R package, but not in North America. However, I can't seem to find what exactly was different between the two. Do any of you guys know what the R has that the T5 in NA does not?

Thanks,
Randy

If that is all, then my t5 SE must be about as close as I can get.
It has the SC901 and the Suede. No blue gauges, no AWD and no center channel. I had considered adding the center channel, but was in a V70R with it and was not that impressed.

Thank you guys for the responses. I agree with JRL thought hat an R did exist in AWD in the S70's. I came across 2 in my search. At least they say they are AWD.

However, you guys have provided me with what I was looking for.. Again.. Thanks

That is cool. Either someone is fibbing, or they did a bunch of work to make a 99 AWD S70 R


Would be a fun project though. However, I understand that if the car did not come AWD, you can't make it AWD. Something about the bottom pan...floorboard of the car being different. ?? Dunno

That Saffron is just beautiful!!

JRL, your V70R I am sure would be a perfect car, but it is the wrong generation and color for what I want.
I love the G2 styling on the V70. The view from the rear on those cars is stunning. And I want black, with Atacama Interior. I am not above adding the interior myself though. But I want black. Or Saffron or Cassis
But mostly black.
