      P2 V70
      The second generation V70 was styled by British designer Peter Horbury, who said "the design challenge involved marrying sports car style at the front with the necessary limitations of a wagon back." More specifically, he described the concept as the "front end of a Jaguar E-Type married to the back end of a Ford Transit van."
      V70 R.
      As with the previous generation, Volvo offered a high performance variant called V70 R AWD. Based on the PCC2 concept car from 2001, the model was unveiled at the 2002 Paris autoshow on September 26. 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 metric horsepower (221 kW; 296 hp) and 400 newton metres (295 lbf·ft) of torque. This allowed for a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds and an electronically limited topspeed of 250 km/h. The R was available with a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic. The 2005 facelift saw the five-speed automatic replaced by a more modern six-speed unit. Large brakes made by Brembo provide high performance braking capabilities in line with the cars high performance characteristics. The V70 R comes as standard with Volvo's 4C multi-mode suspension that had been developed in conjunction with suspension experts Öhlins. The driver may 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."

      I live in South Pasadena and work in Downtown LA.
      I can show the car in both locations.
