Is there a way to contact Alex besides IG? I’m in search for a V70R lol
Bern on Cars (12 days ago)
I probably have to be patient lol. DM’d him earlier this morning

IG is the best place for him.

A channel full of P2 R's? *SUBSCRIBED AND BELLED*. Also, that '07 Sonicama is probably the cleanest example I've ever seen. Anywhere. Ever. Gonna follow this guy on Instagram too. What an incredible collection. Congrats on the M66 VR in friggin' *Magic Blue*, what an incredible spec. -Proud owner of a not-so-clean (yet) 2006 Ti-Grey/Gobi S60R GT A.K.A. "Dromma"

In my 5th Volvo. Love my s80 buy my favorite was my “whitey” turbo wagon. Wagons are really the best utility cars. Mini vans are so overrated. Never had one and never will. This car is sick.

I love Volvo's not complaining that you added another to the croup
John Odonnell (8 months ago)
YESSSS!!!! I finally found a channel with quality R content. Can't wait to see what you do with her. Also tell Alex he's the partout god (I have a m66 05 S60R, passion red sport kit with bolt ons)

My father has a black V70R with cream interior, manual, and it's the car I learned stick in, it's pushing 420 hp, down pipe, 3 inch exhaust, lowered 1.5 inches, intercooler, mail box tune pushing 20 psi, when you step on it you smell antifreeze 😬

That is the dumbest way to measure rarity. With that logic my Mercedes Vito is the rarest Vito of all because it has all of its doors rusted... Oh wait, not that rare

My fridge is the most rare thing in my appartment, only one ever imported into this household. *?!?!?!*
Roger Skagerström (9 months ago)
I can't really see the craze for a manual Volvo of this generation - as they are incredibly boring to drive whatever gearbox. It's just a Volvo with 50 extra horsepower (stock). The Skyhook suspension even manages to make them a bit more boring. The V60 was IMHO the first Volvo that wasn't a sleeping pill to drive.
Alebone (3 months ago)
A cheap retune and you have over 350hp without changing anything whatsoever, not boring to drive at all
Crackdown77 (9 months ago)
One of the trends coming from the US I hate most, is the automatic transmission. 10-15 years ago in Europe cars were mostly manual. Nowadays more than the 50% is automatic... I miss manual cars so much!

Im driving regular 2002 volvo v70 2.4 D5 with manual transmision. Car is awesome, but electronics are pain in ass and breaks often
IwillBwaiting (9 months ago)
The wagon did not come with Atacama as standard when ordered new ? And the flash green one looks very nice , but I believe it should also have a spoiler fitted on the trunk when it has the bodykit . It needs it , when going at a higher speed . Here the blue one is very rare . It looks almost the same as the blue used for the concept car of the s60 . https://www.netcarshow.com/volvo/2000-pcc_concept/
Konrad Kondziovsky (9 months ago)
You call them RAREST Volvos because they are manual, we, in Poland, on the other hand, since we are not kids restricted to 4speed automatic transmissions, just call them V70R. It is normal for us, I mean people over IQ ot 75 to have manual gearboxes with, wait for it..........5, or even 6 GEARS!?!?>!!?!?!?! sick, right?

What is so rare about it?
Sebastien Florence (9 months ago)
Hi, you bought it because the gear swap is impossible on this car. Too much electronic and specific parts... I have a v70r 05. Titanium grey with Atacama leather. Manual of course. I really like the sonic blue S60 and love the green S60r.
DJ_PaulTUK (9 months ago)
Should have just got a Saab 9000 Aero. Faster, and more powerful, and a better handling car. Plus B234R can be taken to 450bhp with NO physical engine mods.

Thanks for the video. I love the R's I have a black 1999 S70 T5M one of 190 manuals for that year. I also have a 1995 yellow 850 T5R 1 of 95 yellow sedans and wagons brought to the states that year. I love Volvo. Keep up the awesome work. Congrats on the VR! Im VolvoBoostR at the sweedespeed forum.

Just saw a V70R wagon today for the very first time, I thought it was a fake as I'd never heard of that model. It's super rare model here in southern Ontario only 160 MTR made it into Canada over 3 yrs. Then I stumble into this video..
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
Welcome! Hope you like the channel. -Gregson

Great video, this just made me love my flash green 98 V70 T5 manual front drive even more. ( still want R model) Looking forward to more videos.

Fjewt (9 months ago)
we sweden call those the spaceball shifter
Roger Skagerström (9 months ago)
It was called the Spaceball shifter in the marketing material from Volvo, so I think it was the term world wide.

I know Sweden keeps all the good manual transmissions but do the p3 s60/v60 have a manual option for you guys?
J Gripen (9 months ago)
Jacob Nilsson Yea, auto's are very rare here in Sweden. Only one with a bigger quantity to come in auto is the S80.

Very much, yes
TheOmegaeyes (9 months ago)
Beautiful R cars! I have the same wheels on my s40. It's funny cause that's the exact color I was thinking of dipping mine. I have an '09 s40 2.4 and a '10 v50 R design. Love my Volvos.

I have a 2006 sonic blue V70r manual with atacama leather in South Africa one of 6 V70r's in SA and the only one in this trim a real unicorn
Goolungs (9 months ago)
What's even more rare is a 2006 volvo s60 t5 special edition. What makes it a special edition? It comes with a tune from the factory (meaning stock 300). And some interior trim. It is quite the R killer
Thomas N (9 months ago)
Try to find an 07, took me 9 months and a trip to TZE GERMANS
JAMCastillo1 (9 months ago)
I have an 01 S60 2.4T. I was trying to buy a manual s60r but the guy told me he actually ended up messing up the shocks and the 4C system. That really sucks

Love the Volvo videos
Mitch K (9 months ago)
Did the owner disclose that a tree had fallen on the car before his ownership and caused severe roof damage to the car before you bought it? Looked at this when it was for sale in Michigan before Alex purchased it... just in case you'd like to know.

5:20 OBVIOUSLY they have been restitched. It is obvious as day. You think that corner stitching looked like that from the factory. Damn. Did you guys already give up on your last V70R “project”?
cyclesingsleep (9 months ago)
So, why do you need TWO V70R's? (Obvious Answer: Because I can't yet afford three!)
mousiee7 (9 months ago)
Great combo on that V70R!!!

One question are those all shim blocks o.O
John O (9 months ago)
Want to talk about rare S60R's. Only 100 2004 (right hand drive) cars were imported into Australia and less than half with Atacama interior...and I have one! :)
John O (9 months ago)
Darrin Ray. Ok You win! That certainly is a rare gem! Have you ever seen another S60R/V70R on Aussie roads?
John O (9 months ago)
ShiftingLanes. Lets do the math. In the USA there is (roughly) 1 S60R per 88,100 people. In Australia there is 1 atacama S60R per 500,000 people! Woo hoo!! 😆
Darrin Ray (9 months ago)
John O hey John O, I'm from Australia too and I own a P2 V70R, one of 25 imported to OZ, there were 20 Auto's and 5 stick shifts :)
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
Yes! Good on ya 🙂 -Gregson
Tony Medina (9 months ago)
I was looking for a s60r with black exterior and that tan interior for at lest two years, when I finally found one near me I jump on it. I am a happy 07 s60r owner now. I couldnt find a manual one with black and tan colors so an auto did just fine.
Jordan Dennis (9 months ago)
2 #dadwagons?? Not fair... you should let me take the silver one for you guys (you can keep this cooler one). My newborn needs something more comfy than my mini but quicker than my girl’s Jetta!

Jordan Dennis (9 months ago)
ShiftingLanes man, I wish I was, but unfortunately chico state has first dibs on my money for the next year. haha However, watching you guys do cool stuff with wagons is enough to scratch my itch in the mean time!
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
If your seriously about that, shoot us an email at [email protected] and we’ll talk.
Jordan Dennis (9 months ago)
Also, the M3 was always in danger, But this new Volvo sealed the deal.
Mark Kibbe (9 months ago)
Amazing find! And I thought my 80k mile V50 T5 M66W (6spd Manual FWD, black on black) was rare. This is next level. What will happen to the auto V70R you guys have?
Mark Kibbe (9 months ago)
Alright, awesome. Can't wait!
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
We will be announcing our plans for that car on Thursday. -Chad
Alan Arvizo-Gonzalez (9 months ago)
AHHHHHH jealous. Nice find
ScottCo98 (9 months ago)
My friend here in MD has an 05 flash green atacama M66 V70R. Almost no 2005 flash green V70R’s were made. His is probably even rarer than yours.
kellypaws (9 months ago)
I don’t mean to be negative, but hey I wanted to see the first one get built out. Is it relegated to a non project?
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
Next video will explain all that. Thursday at 10 am EST.

ShiftingLanes What are you doing with the other Volvo?
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
Haha I know. It’s a perfect combo. Sadly there will be ugly ass NJ plates on it soon. -Gregson
AeroFix94 (9 months ago)
you guys should have got the V70R first gen instead. Much sexier car ;)
TeaSToRM (9 months ago)
i prefer any volvo up to 1999 after that they went too curvy
AeroFix94 (9 months ago)
as a swede myself. I prefer almost all the volvos :) But nice to see another one on the channel. Keep it up. Maybe V70 Manual vs Auto drag race soon ;)
ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
Great looking car, but I prefer the P2s 😍 -Gregson

Hope you still manual swap the other one. So I can do it myself on my ‘04
cliff owens (9 months ago)
Rico Lagman they won't do Jack shit. They haven't done anything apart from talk about doing stuff
youtubasoarus (9 months ago)
Looks like it also has an IPD poly top mount! :) I agree on the paint matched trim, love that. Not a fan of the black trim that gets covered in wax from the car wash... pain in the ass to keep clean, always looks grey. :( Those two sedans also had the factory kit! Super rare as well. Been trying to locate a part-out with the kit. No joy. :/ - R w/M66

Christopher Jefferson (9 months ago)
New Volvo owner ? I have a clean (as per local Volvo shop) 09’ S60 2.5T that I really wanna know if it’s chipped. As a short time Volvo mechanic (3mos?) and now an Atty I’m not up on car modding. The ecm looks stock and has no sticker etc. but there are allow of weird little issues that give me pause that someone was “playing” with the car b4 they sold it. The drivers seat bolster needs to be resewn and some roof ares either rebent or reglued (hard to explain) but that is all that is wrong with it. Oh and I got like 4K off for minor hail damag. (And if I find whomever u are that took ur fist and slammed in on the roof between the rain sill and roof panel to dent it, your time is limited in earth.). My question is what is a good intake (like the one the teal colored R had) other tha a free flow drop in IPD filter? And how to tell if ,y car is “chipped”. No doubt it’s been done. I’ve no rev limiter, no auto shift at redline, no torque limiter etc, and 0-60 is a bit better than T5 territory. If I use aero plane fuel, ummmm....it’s allot faster to the point I won’t do it again for fear of my tranny goin “kerblammo”: thanx
Christopher Jefferson (9 months ago)
PS this channel now has me looking for a man T5 wagon AWD or S60r.
Christopher Jefferson (9 months ago)
cliff owens they don't know? The ways of the force? Or....If it's chipped? And can the auto 2.5t's Haber S60R manuals transboxes swapped in?

ShiftingLanes (9 months ago)
Soooooo good right!? -Gregson
Klas Peppar (9 months ago)
I disagree the face 1 does not look ugly with the plastic trim. But the face 2 looks better. The face 2 with a manual is rare even here in Sweden. It is a nice car, but I don't like the wheels, not the wheel colour at least, not my cup of tea and it is some thing with the orange reflektor in the normal face 1 and R US lights that make me cringe. I don't know why but it justs looks wrong to me as a Swe.
IwillBwaiting (9 months ago)
*fase 1 (and 2) . And does the Atacama interior not come standard with flooring in same colour also , including mats ? The flooring and mats in this model are all black (charcoal) which makes me believe the doorpanels and seats and rear bench have been fitted at a later stage .
Klas Peppar (9 months ago)
Sounds great! Can't wait to see them in a video!

its impossible to even find a s60 t5/ s60r anywhere near me with a manual that has low miles. Even when I check a couple states over.
TJ Williams (9 months ago)
i'm not traveling all the way to Sweden for a Volvo. I live in the U.S. and that'd cost way to much money.

Peter hall (9 months ago)
Ofc not all teens have them, but there are alot around. If i compare to what you are saying. But then the factory in Gothenburg is less Than a 1.5 hour drive from here ;) Topsite for selling cars in Sweden : www.blocket.se
