In the spring of 1996, Volvo introduced a new high-performance Volvo 850 as a replacement for the hugely successful limited edition T-5R. Volvo decided there should be no direct successor to the T-5R, but due to its success, Volvo decided to develop a new high-performance model. The new car, based on the T-5R, was called the 850R, which again came in either saloon or sport wagon editions.

The only colours available were Bright Red, Black Stone, Dark Grey Pearl, Dark Olive Pearl, Turquoise Pearl and Polar White. In the U.S. market only Bright Red, Polar White and Black Stone were available. The Saloon featured a newly designed rear spoiler; spoiler was now standard on the estate. The interior upgrades included bucket style heavily bolstered 'sport' front seats (Alcantara centre with leather bolsters), Alcantara door cards, two-tone leather steering wheel, stainless steel '850' kick plates and R branded over-mats. A 200w amplifier was also added to the 8-speaker audio system.

First registered on the 1st June 1996, we understand that this 850R has been a Category D insurance loss – ‘Vehicle extensively damaged but repairable’, and dated on the HPI report as 8th September 2000. We are not aware of what the specific damage was, however, it was subsequently repaired and put back on the road. With 2319cc petrol engine automatic transmission and, the 850R has been in current ownership since June 2015.

Work and parts fitted to the 850R, include: New front tyres, new front brake calipers, new brake hose, a new CV boot fitted, rubber hose on idle air control valve fitted (MOT emissions), number plate bulb and fastener fitted (MOT), sump washer fitted (MOT oil leak), nearside rear outer sill repaired, very small hole (MOT), service items replaced recently (oil and filter, air filter, spark plugs), new distributor cap and rotor arm, full set of spark plug leads. With a current mileage in the region of 178,000 miles, the 850R offered with a current MOT into October of 2024.
