This 1995 Volvo 850 T-5R is a well-specified Japanese-market example of a high-performance modern classic estate car, which is completely rust-free.
It is powered by a 2. 3-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine, which sends around 240hp to the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.
This right-hand drive Volvo 850 T-5R began its life in Japan and was imported into the UK and registered with the DVLA in September 2019.
The odometer displays 178, 025 km (110, 620 miles) from new. Its mileage was verified at the time of its import to the UK.


This 850 T-5R is finished in Black Stone over black leather and has a synthetic suede-trimmed interior, featuring dark burr wood trim inlays on the dashboard and centre console.
It rides on a set of 17-inch Titanium Grey alloy wheels, shod in Avon rear and Bridgestone front tyres.
Factory-fitted equipment includes electrically adjustable and heated front seats with memory function, air conditioning, cruise control, a sunroof, a trip computer, electric windows, and a Volvo-branded SC-830 radio CD and cassette player with graphic equalizer settings.
The car will be accompanied by its Japanese handbook, service booklet, and official import documents, as well as the tool kit and jack, and Japanese maintenance invoices.


Please refer to the photo gallery to assess exterior and interior conditions.
Specific notes: small stone chips on the bonnet, small cracks in the plastic gearstick surround, and slightly cloudy taillight lenses.
The seller is not aware of any electrical or mechanical faults with the car.
The car’s last MOT test was conducted on 30 May 2023 at 177, 998 km, resulting in a first-time pass with no advisories.

The car comes with a huge amount of service history and has been kept with no expense spared.
