Looks good. That will be a confusing car for people that know Volvos but not very well :)

Or, more importantly, for sale and how much?

The Saffron was an option for the 98-00 V70 and S70 R's aka the P1 cars.
1993-1997 850s, 1998-2000 V/S70s, and 1998-2004 C70s were the P80 platform. P1 is the 2004.5-2012 S40, 2005-2012 V50, 2007-2012 C30, and 2006-2012 C70.

I remember reading about this VR

Salesman who used to have a P1 saffron did not want his car looking different when he upgraded so he painted his new VR

I saw a similar thing in Portland, a customer wanted a P2 R but he wanted Olive Green. Did a good job too, even the strut towers and front frame rails were green. I almost didn't believe it was a repaint except a tiny paint chip or two under the hood revealed passion red.

This car is local to me, and I saw this at one of the London Meets. Unfortunately this car was originally Titanium Grey, and the door jams, engine bay still reflect this. Also saw the for sale ad recently on Kijiji (like craigslist, but Canadian) too.

Perhaps its just me, but I think gold is an ugly car color even when you call it something else, lol.
lol true, and light green even if they call it something flashy :p

This is my mechanic's car. He just picked it up from London. I haven't seen anything but a quick look as I took the pictures.

Personally I think it looks amazing. I wanted to paint my car saffron once I finished it, now I'll have to paint it cream yellow.
