I'm still waiting on specs, but the new S80 debuted today at the LA Auto Show. Here's the first pic Volvo has released. As far as I can tell (quick check on the other Volvo sites), we're the first to have it up.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/george/new_s80.jpg">

I just hope the new color is more whitish than yellowish. Volvo had the 850 Platinum Edition in the late '90s on the 850. See below. Sorta reminds me of that. I always loved Volvo's pearl color. <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/cars/97_850/exterior/large/06.jpg"> <BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/cars/97_850/exterior/large/15.jpg"> <P>The 850 came with special wheels (which I got a set for my 855). I wonder if these wheels are unique to this car or if that's the new S80 wheel. They're pretty handsome. I might have to try to get a set for my XC.<P>

Here we go, more pictures from Edmunds.Com! It looks like the car is equipped with Xenon's since the high-beams are now used as the DRL's (lowered output).<P> <IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/media/2002/laautoshow/s80.f34.500.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/media/2002/laautoshow/s80.int.500.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/media/2002/laautoshow/s80.r34.500.jpg"> <P>-Drew

I am looking for an 850 or 960 to play with(though I could only change the looks on the 960) and I have always liked white cars. I want to put some black glossy rims or white rims even on it tho. That will look nice. <BR>The new interior changes are something like a faster DVD drive for the navagation and a larger screen, and seom sort of remote control. Dont know if thats for tha navagation or entertainment in the back.<BR><p>[This message has been edited by omega6_virus (edited 01-05-2002).]
