Volvo V70 R 2nd Gen car illustration wall art print.
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 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.
