Hi folks~<P>We have a 97 850R wagon and I am toying with the idea of replacing it with a V70R sometime this year or definately next. I am wondering what colors the V70R came in for the model years 98-2000? I have only seen black and safffron.<P>

Thanks for the colors, now I looked in the V70 1.0 gallery and was wondering what the spec is on that bright blue model. year? color? US model?<P>I realized after seeing the lists of colors that I have seen many black and silver models and one saffron. All local. <P>What year got the front center speaker?<P>edit: Oh and what about the wheels? The blue v70 I mentioned above has very different wheels than the v70R's I've seen around here.<P>Thanks again.<P>

I believe the laser blue V70 R was made during the 1999-2000 run. I don't think the differences between the eariler R models are drastic. I do believe that the 2000 V70 had around 260 hp, while the others had 250? I may be wrong though. Oh yeah, these cars had twin tailpipes.<p>[This message has been edited by volvos70turbo (edited 01-12-2002).]

You mean this car?<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/cars/00_v70/large/04.jpg"> <P>That's a Euro model, you can tell by the corner markers, though I've seen this car in the US before, so I know it's available. <P>You could always pick up a set of those 5-spokers like the new C70 has. They're 17" instead of 16" which is I believe what came on the US V70R. That'd look nicer. Those are pictured in the V70 1.0 (that's a cool way to define) gallery on the orange one.

Evolvo~ yep that's the one. I'm not a big fan of the blue really, I was just suprised at the color because I have never seen one in the uS. It reminds me of another car I saw this summer for the first time. In Stonington Borough, CT there was a Audi A6 Q Wagon circa mid 90's and it was that S4 blue, maybe a touch softer. Cool lookin wagon but we blew by him in the 855R<P>Anyhow...... Cassis Pearl Mettalic. Now can someone show me a pic of that color online?? Sounds HOT, was it an R only color? Saffron was right?<P>You can tell I'm starting the homework and that color plays big into a purchase.<P><P>

And one more thing, the very rare <B>Saffron S70R AWD</B>, which supposedly there is a 'real' one in the United States somewhere. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P> <IMG SRC="http://212.112.191.199/~anders/street/2001/0423/bilder/gorla_0423_25.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://212.112.191.199/~anders/street/2001/0423/bilder/gorla_0423_31.jpg"> <P>-Drew

Yannis,<P>I am pretty sure you are right about 'Classic Red' and 'Dark Blue Metallic', but I am almost 100% percent sure that Cassis came to the US on the V70R, because I think I have seen pictures of one, of an owners car. I will try and see if I can find them again. I don't even think I have ever seen a 'Dark Olive Pearl Metallic' either. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>More Pictures... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.scottyonline.com/v70b.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.scottyonline.com/v70c.jpg"> <P>-Drew
