    Volvo V60 T6 AWD latest edition

    Got rid of my 850R.....

    Replaced it with this.

    2012 V60 T6 R design AWD
    Polestar'd 330 horse
    Jap import
    280 a year road tax due to this.... Better than 580.
    Surprisingly cheap to insure. Only 20 quid more than my V60 D3 per year.

    21000 miles (well it did have, just ticked over to 22k, must stop using it so much)

    Almost all the toys.

    Upgrade TFT display.

    Savage is the best word to describe it.

    Sounds amazing. Looks like any other R design V60 but goes like a stabbed rat.

    Almost a bit of a sleeper.

    Very, very rare. Didn't appreciate how. Only 35 registered in the road in the UK. Far less my my old 850R (78 manuals, plus the autos).

    Worthy addition to the fleet.
