Bit of Aston Martin styling at the front there.
850 tdi 195000 miles, Holset HE221W, 3" intercooler, 2.5"pipework, big nozzles, 3" downpipe, 'free flowing' exhaust, custom remap = 237 bhp 364 ft/lb, and 45 mpg! Best of both worlds.
Looks nice I like it

Nice, just need to wait 10 years after launch for depreciation to take affect
Volvo unveiled the S90, ahead of its international launch at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2016. The new upmarket saloon will go up against the BMW 5 Series and Jaguar XF and cost around £31,000 when it reaches UK showrooms in late 2016.
The S90 will be powered by a range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, including the impressive 190PS D4 engine that emits just 99g/km of CO2 in the V40. Emissions for the S90 are yet to be confirmed, but the powerful T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain will be available, with 407PS and sub-50g/km of CO2. There's no details about fuel economy yet, but expect the hybrid to offer 100+mpg. [using the VW method of testing..? ]
Power will be delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, while D5 models with 225PS will use four-wheel drive and emit around 133g/km of CO2.
Volvo will pack the S90 with its latest semi-autonomous driving technology and Pilot Assist has already been confirmed, providing automatic steering adjustments to keep the car aligned within lane markings on the motorway or A roads. The system will work up to speeds of 80mph and reflects the development work Volvo's has put in towards full autonomous driving.
The S90 will use the same platform as the XC90 and shares a number of styling cues from the SUV, with a large vertical grille, LED running lights and hammer light signatures. The interior should feature a similar high quality finish, with lots of soft-touch plastics and a large iPad-like screen dominating the centre console, while leather seats and automatic climate control will be offered as paid for options.

Ah from my tour of Gothenburg I remember a lovely lady telling me about a feature and I can share that with you now... (prepared to be bored!)
The headlights feature DRL's called "Thors Hammer"
Arguing is pointless....she may not be right but she's never wrong
Tell her a remap is just having your satnav updated.....
I'm heading to the Geneva Motorshow next month. Would be good to have a proper look at the new S90 and hopefully the V90 will be there.
Polestar photoshop looks epic however!

I generally don't do new cars, but that's a very good looking motor.
Actually saw the new s90 just before Christmas in the car park of an M&S in Peterborough. Didn't know what it was to begin with but it looked stunning. Was so pleased when I looked closer and saw the Volvo badge on it !
Old Car: 855 T5 in Grey and rust
Modifications: Not enough !
NEW CAR: Citroen C4 coupe 1.6 HDi,
Modifications: Nowt.....yet !
RECENT ARRIVAL: 855 R in Black
Modifications: Latest head in boot economy upgrade and bonnet mods !
What I do like are the unadorned flanks of this car.... beyond that it is pretty much out in the cold compared with the soon to be replaced Germans, to say nothing about the lovely Skoda, the final passing shot must be that, seats up or down, there is less usable space than a Golf estate.
