In 1953, Volvo launched its first break with the Duett. It was the first vehicle to meet the needs of drivers practicing outdoor activities and professionals looking for space, practicality and cargo volume. The Duett left his mark on the automotive world, even becoming one of the most popular models of Swedish collectors. She crossed the Atlantic very quickly to conquer the North American market and was immortalized in 1997 by a Swedish stamp bearing his image. In 1962, the Duett has given way to the Amazon or “Volvo 221” as its official name.
In 1971, Volvo proposed a Shooting Brake version literally “shooting brake”, its coupe 1800. With its large completely glazed tailgate hinges, the handle attached directly to glass and its 8000 copies produced, the 1800 ES has become one of the most expensive classic models of Volvo.
After the Volvo XC90 last year, it is now the turn of the S90 sedan and V90 wagon of the Swedish manufacturer to receive the R-Design sport finish.
Both models here have a visible sporting processing from the first glance, through their redesigned front with fog lamps (integrated spoiler), inlays “Black High Gloss” making them appear on both the front and rear of the vehicle. A cosmetic preparation that complement new rims Black Mat / diamond five-pointed that enhances the sporting character of both models.
But that’s not all, because driving is also optimized by a Sport chassis which offers more dynamism. The R-Design finish will be available in the Volvo S90 and Volvo V90 from September. Its price is not yet known.
