Re: (JRL)

Passion Red is very rare. I have only seen pictures of one other posted... and it was an 06 not an 07...

It would be an interesting read to see the production nunbers by colour by transmission into NA (Can/USA).

There is a fair amount of red R's around.

Now, I'm not saying there are more Flash Greens. I said maybe based on the fact that R production was higher in '04 and '05 compared to '06 and '07.

No matter who color you have, though, you have a pretty rare car.

If you drive a Flash Green V70R with Atacama you have a darn rare car. If you have a Sonic Blue V700.R with Atacama you also have a darn rare car (and in my opinion too loud of a color combo). When I picked my R in Goteborg there was a Sonic Blue R with Atacama sitting there at the factory store. IMO it was a little too much. Atacama looks incredible with pretty much all other R colors.

I am having a REALLY hard time finding a 2006 or 2007 MT R with 20k miles or less in Sonic Blue.... I have found ALL other color combinations, but NO sonic blue and it is getting really frustrating!!

That's because very few were made. Maybe just a few 100.

My guess would be silver or black sapphire for most common.

You want to know what's bizzare about this thread? I wasn't even looking to purchase the ride I did, but instead merely looking for a replacement for my 2dr C70. Kids hitting the kindergarten and Gr 1 stage required something with more flexibility. I had always liked the look of the R's that I had seen and knew they were relatively uncommon. That was a key so that it fit well in with my other more rare rides. Was looking to purchase one of the two that were available to me locally when I opted to see what the pricing was for them out of the US. Checked out eBay for interest as I didn't know what all the forums out there were, and voila! Saw my 2006 Sonic Blue MT Gobi (Atacama does nothing for me) for sale with 24K on it. There was a BIN of 26K USD in April of 2007. This was fantastic! 20K CDN less than what I had to pay for the same ride here locally. Called the guy stat and we sorted out the purchase particulars. I know own what appears to be one of the more uncommon R's. Had NO idea at the time. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

I like the passion red color too, but i seriously disagree with putting red and blue (gauges) even remotely together... i'm hoping to find my elusive R... I got another month or so to find one.

EDIT* and free car washes for life too
Dont mind that it states automatic transmission- its clearly a MT- funny you'd think they'd be a little more careful with their facts.

No sonics came from the factory with a body kit.

The kits were added here for Volvo execs. I have personally seen more than 1/2 dozen of these machines. Sonic / Nordkap / GT.

Re: (flybynight)

I've never seen another post- '04 passion red with a factory body kit like my own...... although an 07 magic blue with the body kit, M/T, and atacama would first choice by a longshot.
