In 1976 Volvo presented a world first-catalytic exhaust emission control with the Lambda Sond. Back in 1970 Volvo had begun research work in order to comply with increasingly stringent emission control requirements, primarily in California.
In principle, the catalytic converter technique means that the hot exhaust gases are conducted through a container in which there is a sort of ceramic “honeycomb” covered with precious metal. When the exhaust gases come into contact with the precious metal they are converted into harmless substances already to be found in the air. The task of the Lambda Sond is to regulate the mixture of air and fuel so that optimum conversion is obtained.
Autumn of 1990 marked the launch of the Volvo 960 in time for the 1991 model year. This was the replacement for the 760. The 1991 960 was an evolutionary progression of the 1990 760, but it was also one of the first cars to feature the work of British designer Peter Horbury.
The most significant change was that, in most markets, the 960 was offered with an all-new aluminium 24-valve DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, often referred to as “white block” in the Volvo community due to its bare aluminium block. Maximum power was 201 hp (150 kW) at 6,000 rpm.
Finished in Graphite Grey metallic coachwork with Ebony Back leather. Our stunning 960 is one of the last of the line of this iconic series and with a warranted 8,500 miles ONLY from new is probably the lowest mileage example available to the market today, making our example a true collectors gem. the car is in a ‘time warp’ condition which will simply not disappoint upon viewing.
