Wife wanted a V70R stickshift if you can believe it, but after looking at our finances, timing, 1 SUV and 1 car to sell - getting an R this year may not be possible. It's the perfect car for us with 1 two year old. How late can we do Overseas Delivery Program or until when will they produce the 2007 V70R? If we get our act together by July 2007, can we still get our hands on a V70R via Overseas Delivery Program? <p>Will the dealer tell the truth or influence us to buy what they have?<p>Any info will help thanks.

2007 is expected to be the last year for the current R since a redesign of the V70/S60 is on the way and R's don't usually arrive until a few years into the model cycle.

I think you'll see the R for 2008. I'm not sure Volvo will have their act together on the new 60/70 series in time to start transitioning. Although, they don't sell a huge number of R's, so I guess they could go away at any time.

The new V70 will debut in 2008.<p>I don't think that there will be an R version however.

2007 R production will probably continue until about May or so. If you don't trust your dealer, then there is a phone number for the OSD program on the Volvo NA website.

JRL... I wasn't saying there'd be a first year R. I was saying I do not think you'll have the new one yet for MY2008.... Look how long it's taking to launch the new S80.... If they can get it together quick enough, NO there will not be an R in the first model year of a new run.

Again, communication problem----I think there is a CHANCE the redesign won't be here until MY 2009. If that is the case, and they run 2008's essentially unchanged, a 2008 may be available...

Ok, 20 weeks = mid-May. If the new V70 is due to start release at this time but I can still get a new V70R mid-June, as I am told, there must be a production overlap. Do I assume R model only? <p>I am still trying to figure out if I could get a V70R mid-June.

Re: Will there be a 2008 V70R? (DocG)

The new V70 is set for Week 20 next year. The current model will still be offered alongside the new model but only in a few "Edition" versions. I don't think the R will be part of those models since the new model will start with the top of the line engine's.

My overseas dealer told me the factory will continue taking orders through April at least, with the production run ending a few months later, so you could probably order one then for delivery in June sometime. Of course these dates aren't firm so I'd check in with your dealer periodically for updates.
