Volvo 850 Turbo Platinum Edition

850

Maybe you saw this car for sale at this year’s IPD Garage Sale?  It’s a 1996 Volvo 850 Turbo Platinum Edition.  1500 Platinum Edition (also known as the TLA model) cars were built, with a special 3-layer pearlescent white paint (Paint Code 424 – Platinum Pearl Metallic) and were loaded with nearly all factory options.  Supposedly 1000 sedan models and 500 wagon models were made.  Presumably, the platinum edition refers to the “Platinum Anniversary” (70 years) of Volvo Cars, which was founded in 1926 (although the first car rolled off the line in 1927).
