Volvo has never had a vehicle that appealed to me. Just a media stunt to grab attention.

I had two Volvos, and loved them both. First one was ugly, but my 2001 S40 was pretty enough.

I prefer the first one!

I wouldn't turn down one of these:



Or this:



1983 Volvo LCP 2000

Quote:
LCP stands for 'Light Component Project', so named for the light-weight plastics, magnesium and aluminum used throughout its construction.
Volvo set itself stringent targets for the LCP 2000's specification: It must weigh no more than 700 kilograms (1,543 pounds), accommodate a minimum of two people, and use under 4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers--58.8 mpg or better.

I always wanted the 121 version of your first image.
However my dream Volvo was always the PV544 like this one.

I still see those at old car shows once in a while, but never seen a red one. Mostly black, white or blue.
