      Picking up my rebel blue today

      Picking up my new to me Rebel blue S60 R-Design today. Im excited, never owned a Volvo. I have a 450HP to the crank GTO without nitrous so this is going to be a huge change but Im actually looking forward to it. I have a 4 year old and might be having another one soon so I needed something thats more comfortable/practical but yet still fun for my daily commute. Needles to say, I know zero about these cars other than they are very safety minded which is good for driving the kids around.

      Congrats and welcome!

      Did you check-out the V60's? We found it much more practical than the S60, yet just as sporty a driver; we've had both together. Actually traded the S60 RD for an XC60 for yet more rear cargo and added rear seat room for the infant seat (the V60's rear seat is still very tight for the big Chicco 30). The S60's small "letterbox" trunk just didn't cut it for hauling big strollers along with other stuff, especially with the spare tire kit. Not to rain on your parade, just curious since you mentioned practicality as a determiner for buying. Regardless, a rebel blue S60 RD is one sexy ride! Post up some pics when you get it!

      Thank you, I looked at the V60 and didnt want to go to much into that realm but I do agree they have so much workable space. I love my coupes and this will probably be one of my most tame cars in a while (car history / Camaro Z28, Mustang GT / Pontiac GTO). I must say, the first thing I did when I drove it out of the dealer was to drop it into sport mode and hit those manual shifts. Car is hella quick. I was expecting it to be somewhat fast...not this quick. That was great news for me.

      Specs? I bought it from a Fort Myers, FL Volvo dealer for 23k. Car has 35k miles and it comes with 7 year/100k mile warranty

      Love my Rebel Blue V60 RD. You will get a lot of attention with that color...trust me. I live in Vegas where you see every exotic (just saw a 918 Porsche Spyder this morning) and I get a ton of people that approach me about my car. Enjoy!

      The first one has been on an accident and has damage on the doors. I can probably find a share a video with you guys on that one. The second one is the one I bought. I actually end up getting that one for 23K

      Picking up my rebel blue today

      Looks remarkably similar to mine. Was actually going to trade mine in for an XC60 until my son and girlfriend made it clear how much they love my car and gave me cause to reconsider.

      I reckon an Onyx black V60 Polestar is more stealth though!

      How is it that I don't see Rebel Blue as a choice for the R-Design on the Volvo site? I only see Rebel Blue as an option for the Polestar cars.

      Volvo have dropped Rebel Blue from all models, it is only available now on a genuine Polestar.

      Congratulations on your choice of car in 619, gonna be a sought after colour now the option to have Rebel is no longer there.

      Picked up our V60 R Design with most toys at the weekend, D4 in Rebel Blue, love it and a lot of great comments about the colour.

      Straight up. It was cash so that probably helps

      Yeah what Cadaron said. After the 2015.5 V60 and S60 RD run they no longer offer Rebel Blue for the RD's. It definitely going to be sought after in the future....for example there were only 33 2015.5 V60 RDs in Rebel Blue that made it to the USA.

      jealous, I would like owning a car that color, very odd and unique. Polestar isn't necessarily for me, I'd rather have a more cushy ride but I can appreciate the Polestar package. Congrats!

      So I took it to my best friends house yesterday so he can check it out (Mustang GT guy) and his first question was "wth is this?" then he drove it and said "god damn, this thing is quick"

      I was laughing so hard cause I told him, my first reaction as well when I put the peddle down for the first time.
      Your friends reaction was the one I always love! People don't know what it is and are shocked by how quick it is. Don't see a lot of them out here. Congrats brother!
