If you like the design direction Volvo took with the S40, you'll swoon like a Tokyo schoolgirl over the redesigned S80. If you though the S80 was a soulless collection of lumps and slabs, you may want to take a pass on the shots posted on Volvo enthusiast site SwedeSpeed. We think it's a tremendous improvement over the current model, as is the optional Yamaha-sourced V8 thrill-seeking buyers can opt for — 315hp and AWD. Check out the UK's AutoExpress for the dirty lowdown. [Update: Note that, despite the headline, this falls under the heading of Gossip, because the shots are neither official nor un-Photoshopped.]
