Volvo has been eschewing their once-signature boxy designs for over a decade as cars like the swoopy XC60 demonstrate. But at the Frankfurt Auto show this year they proved they’re ready to venture even farther with the Volvo Concept Coupe, a gorgeous, liberal reinterpretation of their venerable P1800. The car bleeds sexy Swede, completed by design elements that create a cohesive, stunning look. Volvo seems to be declaring that this theme will pervade their whole line — first with the next-generation XC90 (yes, an SUV). Check out the breakdown above for all of the delicious details on the Concept Coupe.
