Just picked it up for my wife today. Car is awesome..already looking into putting the Bsr PPC kit. Came with Certificate/ Duffle bags and Plaque. She got # 82 Out of 100 . They only made 100 of these and It's worth every extra dollar for this one. Here are some pics...<p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/7358/v70crosscountryrpic1vc8.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/8625/v70ccrpic2ar9.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img92.imageshack.us/img92/1324/v70ccr3gf0.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/7714/v70ccrrearsqs8.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/4323/v70ccinteriorpiclr0.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img60.imageshack.us/img60/6129/v70ccdoorsillbadgeqq4.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img60.imageshack.us/img60/5/v70mccbadgeqp8.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>

Thanks.. I would have gotten her a V70R but she wanted more clearence and this is much more practical with the babies and strollers PLUS has a 7 seat option... YIKES<p> Btw- I preffer the Ocean Race blue than the Sonic Blue. Should have made the R this colour. We looked into the Audi Quatro wagon but this is soo much cooler.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Zigger,<p>You should transplant the blue dials/fascia from an R gauge pod to complete the blue effect. I think S60_driven might have one for sale shortly... VERY nice car. I've seen a few in the Seattle/Portland area (one owned by Scott Hart), but I had no idea they were so incredibly rare. Only 100? Wow!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I'm temporarily regretting my decision to buy the big SUV last year - I'd much rather have one of those in the stable.<p>- Tryg

Is it just the incline playing tricks on the camera, or does the Ocean Race Edition sit slightly higher than the standard XC70?

Looks nice Zigger. I especially like the ingraving in the door jam and the roll off stamp (82/100). Very cool. Out of pure silliness...did you destroy the new car yet?...can't officially say race.

Congrats! I love the Ocean Race Blue. Wish the R had had this one instead of magic/sonic.

That looks great! <p>When George and I attended the Volvo Ocean Race in Baltimore, MD, they had some european ORE V70s (not XCs) and they had the charcoal interior. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> , something I don't believe the U.S. OREs can get.

When the lease is up on the Denali, it is strong possibility to replace her with an XC70. Put a Thule shell on top and I'd gain back a lot of the room to the big truck.<p>It is a very nice shade of blue. That's a lot of blue between those two Volvo's!!<br>

Zigger: You've got the Volvo For Life bug, you're hooked buddy! It's amazing how many 2-Volvo families there are around, it's really amazing.<p>I've always thought that the P1/P2 Volvo wagon is THE best family car, nice move <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I love the heavy blue stitching on those seats. Did it come with the integrated child boosters? I almost got a V70R in instead of the S60R just becuase of how practical those built in boosters are.<p>LTA<p><br>

Thanks guys.. Yes it comes with 2 child boster seats. I really think it's an amazing car for fammily needs. I love that you can add 2 more seats and make it a 7 seater. One things is for sure... It needs more POWER!!! It tops out at 197 kmh (116 mph) but yeah she loves it that's all that matters. I won't be driving it much expect for vacations or road trips.

Its an XC man...not meant for that kind of use.
