Volvo C70 Inscription

The 2012 Volvo C70 Inscription is going to make its world debut at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, embodying the ultimate expression of Volvo's hardtop convertible. It offers its future customers increased horsepower and torque together with unique interior and exterior details. It will be available in a limited number of units, 2000 annually with 500 of them planned to arrive in the U.S., and its pricing was not announced. John Maloney, Vice President of Marketing, Volvo Cars of North America, stated that the C70 had always been a stunningly designed Volvo and the Inscription package took that beautiful design to an upper level. It is set apart from the standard C70 due to its unique interior which provides nothing but fun and driving excitement. Polestar company tuned and optimised the engine output in a variety of ways by advancing spark timing and funneling more air and fuel into the combustion chambers, thus creating important performance gains. 250 HP at 5,500 rpm are generated together with 273 lb-ft of peak torque, while a five-speed Geartronic automatic transmission routes seamless power to the front wheels. The exterior appearance is enhanced by LED Daytime Running Lights, while the distinctive aspect of the car is given by the chrome which surrounds the grille and headlights. Luxurious appointments were added to the interior, including wonderful Sovereign Hide upholstery, comfortable seats, as well as a dashboard covered in leather and giving a contrasting stitching. The headrests, handbrake lever and unique Inscription floor mats further distinguish the C70 Inscription from the C70.
