Road Test: 2011 Volvo S60 2.0T

Now Volvo has built something really fun for us. And that’s the completely new S60. From the outside it looks much sportier than before. The front of the car has a stronger appearance with bigger head lights, grille and air intakes. Larger iron mark on the grill makes sure that you know that it is still a Volvo. The roof line starts to drop early, with stretched C-pillar continuing almost all the way to the end of the car. Short boot lid and strong C-pillar create a bit of a coupe-like roof line although S60 is still clearly a sedan. Tail lights have a more visual form, but the basic shape of the tail lights are similar to the previous model.

Volvo PV36 Carioca (1935-1938)

The Volvo PV36 which arrived in the spring of 1935 was one man’s work and that man was Ivan Örnberg, a headstrong and versatile engineer who came to Volvo in 1931 from the Hupp Motor Co in Detroit, makers of Hupmobile. Without the interference of either Assar Gabrielsson or Gustaf Larson, Örnberg ran the PV36 project from start to finish.
