Volvo S60 Concept

By luanpa in | February 4, 2010 | Comments Off on Volvo S60 Concept

The Volvo S60 Concept Car was been unveiled at the 2009 Detroit auto show, so it will look like when introduced in late 2010 or early 2011.

The Volvo S60 Concept is bristling with new design details. The LED headlamps create a silhouette of a Viking longboat when switched on and design director Steve Mattin talks of the flow and curves of racetracks informing the design language. There’s clearly something in the water in Gothenburg, the S60 Concept car even has a retractable diffuser that swings into position depending on your speed.

The flowing and seemingly endless lines and its glass rooftop is a first for Volvo. No detail is left out: even the bulbs in the headlights are sculpted as two miniature Viking boats. The rear doors don’t swing on hinges, but open along the body of the car at the push of a button revealing an equally impressive interior. The floating centre stack is handmade out of Orrefors crystal. Like a wave, it floats from the instrument panel to the rear seat backrest. The weathered coastline inspires the ecologically tanned leather and genuine blonde birch wood interior.

Volvo S60 is equiped with a high-powered engibe, which remarkably fuel-efficient 4-cylinder 180 horsepower. Its Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection technology in combination with a range of other features will keep CO2 emissions to around 119 g/km without sacrificing power or pleasure. And a range of intelligent safety systems will help the driver to stay in control and avoid accidents.
