I don't really know, it never was offered in the US. <br>Probably not a whole heck of a lot and I've only seen pictures of two or three in Europe

There are quite a few V70Rs but the S70R is rare... anywhere. I don't know how many where made though.

Re: how rare is a Volvo S70 R? (Alex960)

We have a few around but I think they are more rare than a T-5R .<p>Personally I have never been impressed withe the S70R. The car feels heavy and withe limited slip differential it also feels dull. Not much excitement behind the wheel. A T5 is a far sportier experience.
