Up for auction is a 1996 Volvo 850R. I have had this car for 7 years -- it was my daily driver until three years ago. I parked the car when the turbo failed. Only a handful of Rs were made.
This car currently is not drivable and will need to be towed or shipped. Buyer is responsible for shipping and costs.

This company makes replacement seat skins for the R:
Please keep in mind this car is a project and will need some TLC to make drivable again.
