Default haha....wow. a Volvo 470?

This is cool.
Well, its a FWD car any ways, so whats the point.
IMO, it would have been cool to see another 9/700 with a X70 front end...




interesting none the less....

That's exactly why I like it. The front-end is HUEG!

I think they might have just placed the panels there to see what it would look like, see the block and tyre under the front. The line down the side is all wrong.
