Concept at Aus Show

Volvo Performance Concept Car Heads Volvo Line-Up at Melbourne Motor Show

The Volvo Performance Concept Car, a study for a future high-performance car, will be shown for the first time in Australia at the 2002 Melbourne International Motor Show, which opens at 5pm on 28th February and runs through to March 11th.
With one of the world's most advanced dynamically controlled chassis, electronically managed four-wheel drive and 223 kW (300 bhp) of power on tap, the S60-based Performance Concept Car is the sportiest and most dynamic Volvo sedan ever.

In parallel with the development of the more regular road-going S60 models, a team of engineers and designers has worked on a concept study to identify and test technical solutions and a design structure that will support a feasible high-performance model.

"From the design viewpoint, we wanted to provide a hint of what a future high-performance car with a Volvo badge could look like," says Peter Horbury, Vice President and chief designer at Volvo Cars.

"The Volvo Performance Concept Car has a subtle racing-car appearance that conveys refined sporty appeal."

Now that's a Volvo I could own!

I wonder how competitive it wil be against the likes of the M3 etc.
It certainly looks the goods.
