Crosspost from our new Volvo News Blog forum....<p><IMG SRC="http://www.demec.fi/uploaded/S60R-2.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>We found this on the website of the Finnish styling house known as Demec. I'm sure there's going to be an R-owner out there who at least yawns, if not blatantly tells us they've seen this before. Still, a quick search of our forums found nothing on Demec, so I figured I'd post.<p>The look, with a bunch of chrome, a large rear trunk spoiler and a plethora of R badges, probably is going to be a bit polarizing. Still, the lower valances and sideskirts look awful interesting. I'd like to see a car with just the lower body pieces and nothing more, or perhaps even just the chin spoiler. <p>Either way, here's something new to get you through "hump day".<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.demec.fi/uploaded/S60R-1.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://www.demec.fi/uploaded/S60R-3B.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>More here...<br><A HREF="http://www.demec.fi/modules.php?name=uutiset&file=article&sid=33" TARGET="_blank">http://www.demec.fi/modules.ph...id=33</A>

Re: (phuz)

I think just the chin spoiler, maybe the sideskirts, would look pretty interesting on an R, especially if they blended the chin spoiler into the front bumper. The line without being blended is a bit distracting.

Re: (StaggRLee)

Stagg, a wing still serves purpose on a FWD car, it has to do with increasing downforce which is necessary to keep a car planted and stable at high speeds. All cars lift at higher speed regardless of their drivetrain. Air resistance and lift couldnt care less which wheels power the car only that it is an object travelling at a high rate of sped and thus the resistance will want to lift the car.
