Default What concept car is this??

From Wallpaper Magazine

A surprising makeover from this car brand. We got an early glimpse of their latest offering. What do you think? pic.twitter.com/ySTHRxiyVN

That's difficult. It looks quite generic although I'm sure it's supposed to look anything else than generic. I can't see almost nothing that reminds me of a brand's existing styling. And it looks ...

... not quirky enough to be French
... not sober enough to be Scandinavian (the shape of the grille is a bit Volvo, though)
... not wild enough to be Japanese
... not bold enough to be American
... not refined enough to be Italian
... not like a Jaguar, thus not British

All I see is too many lines and details, no real personality. It looks like a German design student went to Korea and drew a new four-door coupe for them.

Oh, and if looks good but generic, it can always be a new Ford.

Glad this has made it to this forum,

Lots of people are saying looks very Volvo (New S80 Concept) i'd tend to agree, and hoping that is the case.

In the lower air splitter i see BMW so maybe a 7 series Preview ? but not sure on that, something about the colour says BMW as well? - That wing mirror design also is almost exact to the pininfarina gran lusso coupť concept.

Hope we find out soon.

A few things that speak AGAINST Volvo:

- First, Volvo facelifts all their models and removes the chrome from the grilles, and now they would go back to superchrome?
- The position of the wheel indicates an RWD car. This is not going to happen. But then, it's only concept car.
- Is there ANYTHING that remindes you of a Volvo on this car? The characteristic "shoulders" are completely absent for example. Would Volvo really throw all their traditions over board and start with something generic?
- What's with those headlights???

The angled bottom corners of the grille look like Volvo, the wheels look like R-Design. So I'd say Volvo.

You are right in what you say, more evidence points towards BMW (given my previous post) - However with more thought.. BMW would NEVER make a concept WITHOUT Angle Eyes.
so for me its a Volvo...


Check out the Volvo You Concept - look at the headlights, the Led strip is almost a evolution of the one we see here.
The grill is Volvo-esque - http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/20/gihg.jpg/

Geely has just announced that the first volvo/geely model has been green lighted - Lets keep up the buzz with concept
http://www.leftlanenews.com/first-ge...h-in-2015.html

Lots of stuff is NOT volvo your right, and the RWD argument is strong, although Volvo do have their new chassis on the horizon, and Electric motors would be easy for rear wheel drive (ala - BMW i3, Tesla Model s) ?? is only concept like you say.

It's probably Chinese. It would not surprise me either if this is some Hyundai/Kia maybe to create Genesis as a brand. It looks very Volvo to me but it's too sublime for them. It also gives the impression of a clamshell hood. Whatever it is, it is stunning.
