Google Translate does a reasonable job apart from:

The diesel engines D4 and D5 with 190 and 235 hp engines and petrol engines, T6 and T8 Twin Engine with 320 and 407 horsepower. The latter gasoline engine is in fact a laddhybriddrivlina when it interacts with an electric motor.

Very nice, though a shame it's lost the usefully square rear end.

The back end looks bloody awful in those photos.  Like they extended the length too far and then put a sloping window on to compensate.

No accounting for taste: back end looks great to me.

I'm not too shabby at languages and can gist-read that report but am still a giggling schoolboy at some elements. For instance, is "Den sluttar märkbart" the market for white, high-spec luxury cars sold to women with really wealthy husbands?

That is a fine looking big Ovlov.
BeN

I like it.

Why are Volvo often referred to as Ovlov? We don't do the same for Idua, Sedecrem (I like this one!), Nassin, Neortic, Negawsklov etc!

The word "Ovlov" flows, the rest don't?

I like it a lot.

I have no idea! I did once see a 340 GLT with the badging mucked about with to read Ovlov Lego GT.

Probably because the Trade refer to Volvo as Ovlov
Would be interesting if we could get the Trade to refer to Mercedes as Sudocreme though !

Googled this - something to do with bikers and their unteractions with Volvo drivers. When hit they would end up with Ovlov imprinted on them somewhere. Apparently in MCN's Ogri there was a planet Ovlov where Vvo drivers came from. It suck with bikers and the mags in general.

From a Volvo thread I read for this info they had Subaru - u r a bus

But we probably should - I particularly like Callidac and Toeguep

Sedecrem and Adzam are my favourites.  Adzam gets rid of zits, Sedecrem is one of those anti-ageing potions.

Adoks is a good one too

Baas sounds like something that Shaun the Sheep should drive.....

I thought Sedecrem was for nappy rash.

The Wagon looks infinitely better than the saloon.

Volvos should always be an estate.

I found myself browsing V8 S80's on Autotrader the other night.

Cheap now, uber cheap in two years time.

At that angle and in that colour, That looks fabulous. Struggling to think of a better looking current estate.
BeN

Blimey. That is one sexy wagon.
PG

I'm still not sure about the rear - it's the large piece of metalwork (I assume it is metal) right below the rear window that looks odd. I'll want to see one in the metal.

The rest of it looks good.
Bob Sacamano

I always wondered what a Lexus GS wagon would look like.

I was, last week.

That V90 looks pretty good to my eyes.

No, but we have three fish and two shrimps which might help justify it!
