Easiest way to determine if it's an Ocean Race is the cladding. It's light gray, front, side and back.I may well have the only Passion Red V90 in Canada if @CedarMtn is correct. I've never seen another, though I have seen a couple others. Oddly, in my part of the Toronto area there's a white V90CC that must live very nearby. Twice in the last week, we've been at the same stoplight in the morning. (I have no idea how to tell if it's an OR.) Funny, we shared a knowing wave, reminiscent of when I drove a Jeep Wrangler at the beginning of the decade and regularly did the 'Jeep hand raise'.
@ Pocholin - I don't see many of them around Chicago, but there do seem to be clusters. We are in Evanston and our neighbor across the alley has the same white one as we do! Plus another black one I've seen street parked a block over.XC60s from the back (and the distance) look like a weird V90 CC, then ad I approach them and pass them I realized they were y an XC60, it items to me all the time!
The good news is that there are three of us, V90s, within 2 blocks where I live. Black, Osmium gray and my Brown.

Are you very tall or like to have you seat adjusted very high up? That might be your problem.I went to a dealer last year to test fit a V90, and talk about OSD. Ever since 2001, I have been unable to drive a Volvo sedan or wagon. The rearview mirror blocks the entire right side of the windshield, made worse with sensors and black shading. Not a problem with the XC models, as the windshields are not as 'raked'.
I was a bit disappointed with the rear storage area and the rear door. My 850T has more room in the rear. I guess I will have to keep my 1995 for a few more years!
Well... my wife gave it a shot for two years, but she’s just not that into wagons. I thought the V90CC would be tall enough for her but not quite; according to her, the low roof and small windows makes her feel strangely claustrophobic in a very large car. She also doesn’t like the large CC mirrors taking up so much of the view out the side windows. So we traded my V90 RD (we cleared more for it) and bought her a new Benz SUV. We thought about getting back into an XC60, the new model (we had a ‘15.5 previously), but after driving her mother’s ‘19 T6 Inscrpt around a bit then comparing to the Benz (GLC 43), the Benz won it on solidity, infotainment and performance. OK, I had something to do with opting for the 385 hp turbo V6 with sport exhaust version.😉. I won’t get into it here about how awesome that thing is to drive....let's put down the Grey Poupon and let's discuss...especially us WAGON folk...
yeah, yeah...i get that there's more SUV folks in Volvos...by the numbers..but aren't we more of a fun bunch than than the XC crowd?!...
where's the passion?
hell - i'm under 60 yrs old (by a year!), and had to sign "the waiver" to drive a volvo when i'm still playing Van Halen I? ( i do have a BMW M3 coupe v8 to offset my failings?!)
live, drive...and.....................pass every XC you can!
The times I took my V90’s to the local cars and coffee, it did get as much attention as the Ferrari’s and certainly more than the many Porsche’s, Vette’s, AMG’s, Bimmers - this is a very large C&C also. More than my sexy AMG convertible. The Lambo’s and McLaren’s do tend to get as much attention as the Volvo there though. 😉Correction. I live in NJ and my 2020 V90 Inscription T6 IS rarer than a Ferrari! I recently had a clear wrap put on my car (front grill and lower side panels ... will have the front hood done soon). While there, the guy was working on several Porsche 911 GT3's and one Ferrari. When I brought in my car, he said that this is the first he'd seen in person. I told him to be very careful with my car since is WAS rarer than the Ferrari he was working on. According to Volvo, Volvo USA V90 car sales, through Sept 2020, were 209 vehicles (https://www.media.volvocars.com/us/en-us/corporate/sales-volumes). My guess is that less than half are Inscriptions. Even at 100 Inscriptions as an estimate, that averages out to only 2 per state. I travel along the east coast, between Virginia and Massachusetts. I've run across a few V90 Inscriptions in Va, but not anywhere else. While Ferrari only produces about 7000 vehicles per year, in NJ, there isn't a week that goes by that I don't see at least one Ferrari driving by. I can name a few nearby towns (and my own) where each has several Ferrari owners. I like the idea that my V90 is rare, but the best part of owning it is the comfort it provides during my long-distance drives (between 4-to-5 hours). The car has plenty of power, can quietly cruise all day at 75 mph or more and, once you arrive after a long travel, I don't feel fatigued or sore.
Thanks for the idea! I followed suit and learned that:.....sigh.....just ripped VanHalen 1 to flac in remembrance...B&W and VH1...surreal...
