Is it me, or do Volvo concepts always look striking and dramatic, completely contrasted to the actual product.

imho just about all mfgs' SKETCHES look striking and dramatic
and just about worthless for knowing how actual vehicles look ... good OR bad

The famous Volvo P1800 experiences this year, its fiftieth anniversary. Volvo designer Chris Benjamin has been reflected on how a modern interpretation of that car it would look. This is the result.
Chris Benjamin, Volvo's chief designer for the Monitoring and Concept Center, near Los Angeles. He has thrown itself on the fiftieth anniversary of the P1800 and came out with these drawings. Then we see how the car would look like if he continues to this day has survived.
On further plans for the design is unknown. So the dream begins. Here we go: it looks like the C70 coupe convertible successor no longer given. The factory in Uddevalla circuit in 2013 and a coupe and / or convertible version of the new V40 we do not see happening.

Volvo does have a reputation to uphold when it comes to coupes. Remember to start at P1800 but we know people who are still uneasy dreams of the C70 coupe in the first decade of this century was for sale or 780 of Bertone. As it stands, sitting without a Volvo coupe soon. Is it time to consider these sketches to life?
