The Volvo S60 Concept car was unveiled at the recent Detroit Motor Show earlier this month, giving an indication of what the new Volvo S60 will look like when it is launched in 2010.
The concept retains the coupe-inspired silhouette that gave the original S60 its unique stance. It has now been further accentuated. The concept car's design gives a visual promise of enthusiastic driving characteristics.
The sleek coupe-like roof line is accompanied by entirely new shoulder contours, a gentle double wave from the headlamps at the front of the car to the tail lamps at the rear.
On the inside Volvo has been even more daring – there the focus has been on creating a vision of the future.
Among the interior features is a floating centre stack made of hand-crafted Orrefors crystal. It is shaped in a graceful, transparent wave from the instrument panel all the way to the rear seat backrest. The crystal panel appears to float above the centre stack's ergonomically designed functionality and it rests gently on rubber pads.
