The car was ‘discovered’ on the occasions site by a Volvo fanatic Mark van Loo. He shared his ‘find’ on Twitter. Van Loo recognized the license plate when he saw photos of the car. But after various media published about the special Volvo, the monkey came out of the sleeve. The car is not for sale at all at the moment. Someone at Autoscout24 has apparently made a mistake.
The Volvo does not look like a speed monster that is considered capable of keeping up with fast motorists. Yet the reality is different, because under the hood of this ‘gray mouse’ is a 250 hp (184 kW) strong 2.3 liter five-cylinder turbo engine. It is an S60 2.3 T-5 Sports Edition with which many hours of beautiful TV material has been collected for the TV program, which was produced and presented by Leo de Haas from 1991 to 2011. The 1,456 kilogram car accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km / h.
How is it now with Leo de Haas?
For twenty years Blik op de Weg managed to score on Dutch television, but when the program came to an end in 2011, it also meant the end of Leo de Haas’ career. Last year he appeared again in the media (read how he is doing here).
The car dates from 2004 and has driven 261,000 kilometers according to the (old) advertisement. It still looks neat and is MOT approved until May next year. The asking price was 3,300 euros earlier this year. Under the tweet from Mark van Loon responds Leo de Haas with: ‘was a nice car’.
