From Leftlane news:<br>A quick thinking auto enthusiast in Sweden snapped a photo of what could be the next-generation Volvo S60 in testing on the E6 motorway. According to our tipster, Albert, a check of the licensee plate information shows that the car has a 275 horsepower engine. Volvo recently unveiled the facelifted 2007 S60, which some believe will be the last of the current generation model. In March, rumors began circulating that Volvo might be planning to axe the S60 entirely, and increase the size of the next S40 slightly. However, no further reports have added to the credibility of this rumor.<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.leftlanenews.com/wp-images/media/1-2008-volvo-s60-s40.jpg" BORDER="0">

It is possible to run the tag at the DMV (or whatever it's called there) in Sweden to get the owner's name, hp, etc. <p>Some posters have copied and pasted the english translation on a few of them in the past.

That looks exactly like one of the new S80 mules, to me. Even down to the same rims, and tape covering the exact spot where the white reversing light is on the new S80. Unless Volvo is making the S60 simply a smaller version of the S80 *fingers crossed for not*. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

They are distinctly S60-ish.

i think it looks pretty good if you put some big spacers on there. Its a little hard to get a full appreciation because of the masking but you can already tell they are taking the same path as BMW... making the new cars look like bubbles.
