Taking The Volvo C70 For A Spin
Europe’s automotive industry is currently experiencing a new kind of phenomenon: the popularity of coupe-convertible vehicles which are much more known as C+C vehicles. You see, this phenomenon is not only blazing in the mentioned continent but it is also becoming quite rampant in other parts of the world. And now, the C+C phenomenon is slowly creeping towards North America. It would not be a great surprise though for C+C vehicles offer its owners comfort during various seasons, whether it be during the high and humid summer days or even during the cold wintry nights.
The Volvo C70 is one vehicle that belongs to this group and it does make use of the really popular C1 platform that is also used by other vehicles like the Volvo S40 and even the Mazda3. Volvo, which is also the manufacturer of the Volvo 122 parts, says that the Volvo C70 is actually the brainchild of designer John Kinsley. Kinsley may not be that popular but he is one of the top people behind coachbuilder Pininfarina. And if you do know Pininfarina, then you certainly do know that it is also behind the great and famous vehicles like the Ferrari Testarossa, the Ferrari F40, the Ferrari Enzo, a number of Maserati vehicles, Fiat vehicles, and even Peugeots. So it would not be surprising that the Volvo C70 is a breathtaking one at that.
Even if you do have the top of the Volvo C70 up or down, you really would find the vehicle to be quite breathtaking. Experts in the field even declare that the vehicle does have quite little imperfections and the proportions of the vehicle have really been well thought out. You would also find the vehicle’s front and back overhangs to have been made just the right size. And they sure do complement the flowing nature that the Volvo C70 has.
But if you think that this vehicle might not bear the Volvo look that you have been looking for, then you should need not worry for despite the Volvo C70 being a vehicle that is quite different from the usual Volvo kind, this vehicle still has the snub nose that Volvo vehicles have. Plus, the taillights and the shoulders of the vehicle still are very Volvo.
