Volvo Concept Universe.

I have a huge soft spot for Saab and Volvo.  I’m really glad their designs are coming back to where they belong—-after years of both companies being lost and without an identity.

I absolutely LOVE this new, hypnotic, grumpy design that Volvo has sprung onto the world at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show.  After the superb C30, Volvo really haven’t shown anything worth getting excited about til now!  I love the minimalist front end, and the beautifully curved rear end.

There is definitely some Audi and Saab (new 9-5, specifically) design themes  going on here, especially with the 2/3 & 1/3 ratio being present on side view—-but i think Volvo can turn this into an original theme with those stunning front lights and beautifully sculpted rears.

I am guessing the next ‘S80’-replacement will adorn many of the features on this concept—-here’s hoping they keep the style and minimalist presence which makes some features of this so special.

    Really nice proportions and surfacing. But to me it doesnt really say Volvo. Seems almost like a Jaguar with Volvo grille.
