Volvo is preparing an all new replacement for the company's top-of-the-line S80, for release sometime in 2006. The current S80 underwent a restyling in 2003.

These photos show for the first time a prototype during cold-weather testing on a frozen lake in Scandinavia . The car is still disguised, yet the new styling is clearly visible. The next S80 is again a four-door sedan but with a much rounder and more V-shaped body than its predecessor. It is again front-wheel drive and is expected to get power from a variety of four- and six-cylinder engines, as before. According to rumors from Sweden, it could also be available with Volvo's new eight-cylinder engine.

looks like it lost that "shoulder" look to it. you know, the one current models have on their beltline. the front camaflouge makes it look like a GTO, haha. too much camaflouge to say it looks good or bad but i think that "shoulder" was certainly an identifiable trademark of recent volvos. not sure if that's a good idea to lose that.
