    The Volvo VCC

    Volvo has broken away from Ford after runaway success with their sedan and wagon lineup. However, their platforms have started to age and they want to introduce a vehicle in a new niche. Having some money to spend and seeing that troubled GM is now selling rights to designs and platforms after going under, Volvo acquires Chevrolet.

    Volvo's first project is the VCC (Standing for Volvo Corvette Coupe, but simply known as the VCC) is on the drawing board. Utilizing the Corvette Platform Volvo now has opened up a whole new segment: Performance. A Powerful Two-seater coupe is being introduced to the Volvo family.

    Interesting design. I like it. How come no wheels for the side profile?

    I love the drawings! In the front view the left mirror is lower than the right one, giving it a lopsided look. . . . Now that I notice it, the left light's the same way.
    :EDIT: What's with the mean looking hooks on the bottoms of the tailights?

    Heh, to answer questions:

    I have a feeling the whole drawing itself it lopsided, it was more-so last night, and then I fixed it to the best of my ability; but as you can still see, it is still lopsided. although, thanks for pointing out the mirror, I will try to fix that

    The lack of wheels on the side view is because I am terrible at drawing them! lol. plus I have no really original ideas for wheels. :shrug:

    The "mean looking hooks" are the areas where the bumper indents to accomodate the lights, and then returns to being flush with the rest of the rear. (do you sort of see what I'm saying?)

    Any way, thanks for all of the comments! I am definately going to TRY to make a 3/4 view although that is not a promise!

    wow, this puts our S80T6 to shame. very nice though, i like how concept-ey it looks, volvo concepts are usually too tame. i like how you integrated the volvo grille into that front, c'est tres bien.

    Looks good man! I see more Volvo than Vette. You realyl got some good Volvo cues in there... especially those rear hips and taillights. Didn't think that could look sporty, but it does!
