I don't know if an S60R is on the OP's list; it looks like it would be too new. Those things are beasts though. I love them. I also have a soft spot for the 850 T-5R and R variants, especially the wagons. At one point, I was looking into those, but for some reason I could only find automatics (not sure they even bothered importing the manuals).
I like Volvos. If only they made a true bahnburner wagon already....
I think the manuals are slightly more rare. My brothers was a 6mt, it was a pretty good manual transmission but certainly not the best I have driven.
