<br>Today I saw a line up of about 40 all new S80s, both 3.2's and V8's in different colors, rims and interiors. This was in Malmoe, Sweden.<p>There were a lot of Volvo people running around and they were not all from Sweden (spoke enlglish).<p>The same type of silver metallic XC90 (branded VOLVO SERVICE) as seen on the C70 test drive was there!<p>Unfortunately no camera, so no pictures, but I will take my camera and make a new trip to the little secret place.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>It was a beautiful sight! All these powerful and luxurious cars lined up in 7-8 rows of 5 each. WOW!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Is it an official test drive of the new S80? Any words out there?

I think automotorsport.se was also there:<p><A HREF="http://www.automotorsport.se/nyhetsmall.asp?version=32128" TARGET="_blank">http://www.automotorsport.se/n...32128</A><p>In aftonbladet web pages, there was a short video from the actual test drive. Too bad that it was so short..only 1min 01 sec...<p>Any better videos from the test drive session ?

My dealer is going over to Stockholm next month for S80 training, so possible other countries are happening now.

Re: New S80 test drive convention in Sweden? (volvov70)

seeing the close-up pic of the IP/dash, it really seems like the key design is not a good idea. I don't think i'm abnormal in the fact that I have at least 4 other keys on my keychain at any given time (i.e. house, office, wife's car, etc.) Aren't all those keys hanging off the volvo key in the dash slot going to beat up the a/c vent that's right there? (as evidenced by the hanging keychain in the photo)<br>Love the car otherwise, esp. w/ the big sagitta-like rims. Can't wait to drive one.

It looks kinda pudgy from the side and the interior still looks like a station wagon from the 80's. I like the key being higher up so it doesn't bang my leg, but why not just put it on the floor like with Saab?

(not available on a S**b). So you can have the key in you pocket all the time.

How is the size of the car compared to the previous S80?
