    Volvo VOX-Amazon Concept

    Volvo VOX-Amazon Concept

    This vehicle earned the trip to SEMA by winning the “Sweden’s Hottest Volvo” contest, thanks in no small part to touches like the hand-made dashboard and body parts that make it a true one-of-a-kind. The body was rebuilt to change the original 4-door into the current 2-door model, the hand-made fenders lower the car 55mm in the front and 50mm in the rear. The engine is a front mounted inline six cylinder 2.8-liter with turbo and a hand-made stainless steel exhaust and a power output of 600 horsepower. The interior features red elmo leather seats and custom made red vinyl panels.

    as far as I know all 121/122/123 production stopped in 1970, so I would really like to know what the current model is...

    I think they mean that the particular car featured started off with four doors, but currently has two.

    You'd think that if you were hiring people to work in your press and communication department one of the key qualifications required would be "competence in the use of language", unfortunately people seem to think they can write a load of twaddle that makes no sense at all, and that will be acceptable.
    Thanks for all the fish

    Amazons is great!
    this one looks good to imo... But i can't stop thinking about silly sweeds with snus, mullet, and clogs.. (is it the right english word for it? nutterlenders?)
    The only thing missing on this one is "purple tint".. you know.. supposed-to-be-black-but-****ed-it-up-ish..

    But the coolest part is the gearbox

    *runs in the shed and strips the seven for all body panel*

    What's wrong with snuff?
    I don't understand what "mullet" means.
    Clogs are not that common to wear here anyway...

    Now I can't stop thinking about silly norwegians... Is it true that ambulance is called "klantetaksi" (which in english translation would be "clot-taxi") in norwegian?

    Anyhow, when I see this Amazon (or 120 as it was called outside Scandinavia) I'm really proud to be Swedish.
