That is pretty funny that you mentioned the little checkered flag emblem on the 850 T5-R. I was at my Volvo dealer the other day and I saw a black 95 T5-R pull up, so I went to check it out. I noticed that it had a little black rectangular checkered flag on the boot lid next to the R symbol, I have never seen that before and I didn't know what it was either. Thanks for the neat info!

The 850 R was released as a tribute to the 850 Racing cars raced in Britain, Sweden, and Australia. If you notice the R's have the little checkered flag emblem, which is also found on the 1994 850 Estate BTCC.
