The 1997 Volvo C70 Looks Less Like A Cereal Box

Do you like smooth jazz and Spanish guitar? Do you like the color saffron? Then you'll simply adore the Volvo C70.

The C70 is quite the handsome car, not square like Volvo's of old. But according to John Davis, you'd think that this was pure, unadulterated sex, just in car form.

Thank goodness it performs on the track. The five-speed manual scoots to 60 in 6.2 seconds.


And if you thought he waxed poetic about the looks, then you ain't heard nothing about how it drives. Kick back, relax, and watch the Volvo C70 reaffirms itself as the second coming... at least to MotorWeek.

MotorWeek Theater is our showcase of some of our favorite classic reviews from public television's finest motoring program. How does this video only have 5,338 views on YouTube? It's quacktastic!
