Here's the first glimpse of the Volvo S60 concept car, which will be unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2009, giving an indication of what the all-new S60 will look like when it's launched in 2010.

"We can deliver more exciting and more dynamic designs while maintaining our lead position in safety. The concept car shows part of our future and is a hint that the all-new S60 will be one of the strongest contenders in the CD premium segment," said Stephen Odell, President and CEO at Volvo Cars.

The first image reveals the coupe-inspired silhouette that gave the original S60 its unique stance. The coupe-like roof line is accompanied by entirely new shoulder contours, a gentle double-wave from the headlamps to the tail lamps. "The inspiration comes from the Swedish coastline's cliffs and seas," explained Volvo Cars' design director, Steve Mattin. He added: "The concept car's exterior gives a clear indication of what customers can expect of the all-new S60. On the inside we've been even more daring - creating a vision of the future."

Among the interior features is a floating center console made of hand-crafted Orrefors crystal. It's shaped in a graceful, transparent wave from the instrument panel to the rear seats. The crystal panel appears to float and rests gently on rubber pads.

"In a concept car the aim is to give your imagination a free rein and our iconic super-slim center console was the perfect object. Using pure crystal is a thrilling experiment. We may well see interior features in crystal-like materials in the future," said Steve Mattin.
