This is the real volvo S60R - not an "R Design". The S60R was produced from 2004-2007 and was a very limited production vehicle designed to compete against the German high-performance special editions such as the Audi S4 and BMW M3. I owned a 2005 S60R until recently, and my retired parents liked it so much they decided to get their own - which is the 2007 S60R I am selling here. This car was optioned with Passion Red paint and the special R-model-only Nordkap full soft leather sport seats. This S60R came factory equipped with a 300hp turbo 5-cyl engine, 6-speed automatic transmission with geartronic and all-wheel-drive, "Four C" active suspension with comfort, sport, and advanced modes, Brembo 4-piston brakes, and bi-xenon headlamps. It includes power windows, locks, and seats, has a compass in the rear-view mirror, a homelink transmitter in the sunshade, and has both driver and passenger front, side, and head protection side airbags. This car was optioned with the Climate Package (heated front seats & rain sensing wipers), Navigation System, Premium Package (power glass moonroof, Dolby in-dash 6 disc premium stereo with surround sound), Interior Air Quality System, 18" Pegasus wheels, and the Sport Body Package. The window sticker price was $49,240 (The original sticker comes with the car.)
My dad added an Evolve (now called "Elevate" since Volvo made them change their name) performance package which included an ECU programming (raising boost from 13psi to 18psi), an "air management system", 3.5" downpipe, and 3.5" performance exhaust at a cost of $3,500. The car hasn't been dyno'd, but the hp increase is very noticeable. The car also includes an extra set of IPD Pegasus 18" wheels with Continental Extreme Contact all-season tires with lots of tread, as well as the OEM Pegasus 18" wheels with Eagle F1 summer tires with plenty of tread.
This car was the baby of my retired parents. By the condition and the low miles it's obvious that this wasn't some boy racer's plaything. They washed it by hand very frequently, and enjoyed it on multiple trips up to Northern Wisconsin and out to the East Coast. My dad took the car on the track at Road America once during the speed-limited lunchtime spectator touring sessions behind a pace car, and that was the extent of its use beyond normal driving with the wife alongside. The car was serviced at an area Volvo dealer and also at a local shop that specialized in vintage, collector, and race cars. Mobil 1 synthetic was used for any oil changes not performed by the dealer.

Volvo will be showing off its Active High Beam technology at the Geneva Motor Show next week. The system will allow drivers to use their high beams all the time and adds another responsibility to the cameras mounted by the rearview mirror, making them detect traffic ahead, whether it be another car or a truck or motorcycle and in the same lane or oncoming. When a vehicle is detected, a special projector in the Xenon lamps can block out only the portion of the high beam that would impair the other driver. Volvo says the system is accurate down to a 1.5-inch margin around another object.

Active High Beam will be fitted to the Volvo S60, V60 and XC60 and we have to assume they mean the non-US versions of those cars. Audi has a similar technology that it calls "matrix beam lighting," and due to the way the US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard code is written, such active control of high beams is verboten on cars sold here.
The Swedish brand also plans to present a collision-avoidance technology it's calling a "world-first." The press release below has more information and the accompanying video demonstrates the lighting tech.
There's not a whole lot of life left in the current Volvo XC90, but it seems a replacement is on the way. According to What Car?, Volvo will launch its new flagship crossover sometime in 2014, riding on an all new platform that will eventually underpin several models in the company's range.

According to Volvo boss Hakan Samuelsson, this new architecture will eventually underpin the next-generation S60, V70, S80 and XC60, all of which will be getting mid-cycle enhancements over the next year. In speaking to What Car?, Samuelsson said that Volvo would not try to follow the paths set by BMW and Mercedes-Benz, instead focusing on "safety, elegant design and user-friendly functionality" for its next round of new cars.
The new XC90 will remain a seven-passenger vehicle and will be powered by a range of four-cylinder engines. Volvo will soon be dropping the five- and six-cylinder powertrains from its lineup.
The final chapter of Volvo's concept car trilogy has arrived after a few teasers earlier this week, as well as some recently leaked images, and as we so astutely summarized previously, it's a brown shooting brake. Really, we couldn't think of a better type of vehicle to follow up the Concept Coupe from the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Concept XC Coupe from the Detroit Auto Show and complete the Swedish trinity of concepts.
It's best to think of the Concept Estate as the hipper, classier cousin to the Concept Coupe. The two are virtually identical below the beltline, featuring front fascias that are indistinguishable from each other (except one is, you know, brown). Both cars wear wide, rectangular grilles inspired by classic Volvo models and T-shaped headlights Where the Concept Estate differs, obviously, is with its more functional rear end and longer roof.
That rear is accented by the Estate's wide haunches and slim, angular taillights, which borrow heavily from the units shown on the Concept XC Coupe. These two features work in tandem to present a wide, squat appearance from the rear. The profile, meanwhile, shows off that spacious greenhouse, which is made even airier by a glass roof.
