After the success of the Gen 2, DNA Collectibles launched the Volvo V70 R Gen 1
The Volvo V70 R first generation in 1/18 scale is one of the models that have been widely requested by Volvo model car collectors. Indeed, after having released the Volvo V70 R second generation in September 2019 in flash green/Atacama, DNA Collectibles had no other choice but to produce the 1st generation from 1999. Moreover, the 2nd generation has been sold out in only few weeks and we couldn’t let the V70 R lovers without any option.
So here we are, with a magnificent 1/18 replica of the iconic Volvo V70 R. What you’ll see first is logically the colour paint. If you know how DNA Collectibles works, you are probably already aware that we always listen to our followers and they told us (through a poll) that the LASER BLUE will fit perfectly with this scale mode car. Obviously, they were right. Let’s stay outside the model to see all the features. The specific rims for the V70 R are perfectly replicated with the little logo “R” on one of the 5 spokes. A tiny element but a big importance, this is what differentiate an ordinary Volvo from this powerful vehicle. Speaking of tiny elements, you can also admire the realism of all badges around the scale model like the Volvo logo in the front, and the VOLVO V70 R AWD on the trunk. The perforated frontgrill, the fog lamp, the headlights and the headlight washers are perfectly reproduced as always on a DNA scale model. This is what it takes to have the best quality. We didn’t forget the tinted sunroof, the black roof racks and obviously the spoiler which gives an aggressive look to this miniature.
Let’s move inside the model. The Laser Blue paint of the exterior is combined with a black interior where you can see the stitching on the upholstery. The downscaled version of the dashboard is just like the real one, black with chrome parts. The central and passenger’s speakers are perfectly visible and give a touch of authenticity to the replica car.
