Bright Red 850R Estate
In the spring of 1996, Volvo introduced a new high-performance Volvo 850 as a replacement for the hugely successful limited edition T-5R. The new car, based on the T-5R, was called the 850 R, which again came in either saloon or sport wagon editions.
There were 6 different colours available in Europe and only 3 in the USA. The most desired colour is Bright Red which makes 850R is almost as desirable as cream yellow T-5R. The interior upgrades included bucket style heavily bolstered 'sport' front seats with Alcantara on the centre and leather bolsters.
For a limited time in 1996 only, Volvo offered a new heavy duty manual transmission designed specifically for the 850 R (excluding U.S. market), called the M59, which featured a viscous coupling limited slip differential. Furthermore, the M59 equipped cars were fitted with the B5234T4 2.3-litre 5-cylinder engine featuring a larger TD04HL-16T turbo, re-designed turbo manifold & intercooler, unique ecu with Motronic 4.4, uprated fuel pressure sensor and a heavy duty clutch. These modifications enabled the manual transmission cars to produce 250 hp versus 240 hp for the automatic transmission.
