About Volvo XC70
In 2001, to mark their sponsorship of the just renamed Volvo Ocean Race, special Ocean Race editions of the V70 and V70 XC were announced. Released for model year 2002, the cars came painted only in a unique shade of blue. Silver exterior trim and roof rails, special Ocean Race floor mats as well as assorted badging, set the models apart from non-OR models.
To coincide with the 2005–2006 Volvo Ocean Race, Volvo revived the V70 and XC70 Ocean Race Editions. These were unveiled in early 2005, and once again were painted only in a unique shade of blue. They had upgraded standard equipment and special styling touches such as specific alloy wheels, blue interior trim, leather seats with contrast stitching and Ocean Race badges on the outside.
As with the previous generation, Volvo offered a high-performance variant called the V70 R AWD. Based on the PCC2 concept car from 2001, the model was unveiled at the 2002 Paris Motor Show on 26 September. Released in 2003, the model pioneered many firsts for Volvo. It was only available with a Haldex based all-wheel drive system and a 2.5L turbocharged five cylinder engine rated at 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) and 400 N⋅m (295 lbf⋅ft) of torque. This allowed for a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 5.9 seconds. It had an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The R was available with a M66 six-speed manual or a Aisin AW55 five-speed automatic transmission. The 2005 facelift saw the five-speed automatic replaced by a more modern six-speed unit. Large brakes made by Brembo provided high-performance braking capabilities in line with the car’s high-performance characteristics. The V70 R came as standard with Volvo’s 4C multi-mode suspension developed with suspension experts Öhlins. The driver could choose from three different settings to vary the car’s handling depending on driving style and conditions.
In a 2006 article titled “The Manwagon”, The Wall Street Journal linked the V70R to a trend “to lure speed-crazy guys with kids,” saying “car makers are trying to transform the dowdy old family hauler into something new,” and that “consumer research had unearthed a surprising number of family men who thought wagons could be cool, if only they had more guts.”
A total of 3407 V70Rs were shipped to North America: 2004–1,565; 2005–823; 2006–674; 2007–345. (Source Wiki)
