I know this is a cross post, but I think people in this forum would enjoy the pictures :)

Here are some pictures I took of my R with my friend's 2013 Rebel Blue S60 R Design. Enjoy :beer:

I noticed the new shift gate on the manumatic (GearTonic). Any idea if Volvo improved manual downshift so they match engine revs? I'd like to see more engine braking when shifting from 5-4, 4-3, etc.

Very nice cars. I really do like the new color. In that light it looks like a lighter shade than what I was first expecting. Would make a nice stablemate with a '95 yellow T5-R.

No automatic rev matching. You can however blip the throttle when you downshift to avoid jerking the car. With enough practice, you can make it very smooth and useful for engine braking.
