There is something wrong with the description on the Volvo.
The one that is on the picture is a 850R, not a T5 r.
The 850 T5r was only offered in yellow, black and a dark green metallic paint.
The 850R on the other hand was offered in red among other colors.

the trunk badge also clearly says only R. Let’s see if they spot their mistake 😉

It's a second 1980's French Super Production model.
I like touring car racing, but the series did nothing for me at the time.
Parts of French motorsport were trying to get the truly international group A series to be the tin top 'top dog'.
In the end this championship split the motorsport resources and interest in France, to the detriment of both.
I know that there were no French cars suitable for competing against the likes of the E30 M3 or RS500.
Yet the first model released was based on an Italian Alfa Romeo GTV6.
The BMW 635 also soldiered on in the series, after both were also rans in group A.
Interestingly, the oh so French Citroen AX is right hand drive!
