M-sport offers chance to own some WRC history
M-sport is selling off its fleet of Volvo recce cars, offering fans a rare opportunity to buy sensibly priced cars driven by some of the sport’s biggest names.
The defending World Rally champion team is overhauling its fleet of recce cars, meaning the Volvos – some of which have been in service since 2004 – are being made available to the general public.
Deputy team principal Rich Millener told MN: “The response has been amazing, we’ve sold a few of them already. As you can imagine, they’re in various states, but all people want to know is who’s driven them.
“We’ve got cars driven by Colin [Mcrae], Carlos [Sainz], Marcus [Gronholm], basically most of the sport’s biggest stars have been through M-sport and they’ve been in these Volvos. I think most of them are going to collectors, but a few are going to be doing some more recces in the future. It’s a chance to buy a real piece of the sport’s history.”
