2012 Volvo S60 convertible image leaked

Oh, the power of the internet. After Volvo released the S60 luxury sedan, they decided that they would also bring a convertible version of the model to the market. This vehicle has yet to be revealed and no one has been able to receive a peek at what the car will look like. Until now. Attending a dealer presentation in Sweden, a ballsy individual sneaked in a camera phone to snap a quick pic of the vehicle. This is the first image of the car. We have to say we love the power of the internet, obviously. Whenever you can get a shot of a car that has yet to be released to the public is always a good day.

This convertible is said to be unveiled sometime in 2012 and, although it will be a convertible version of the S60, it will not be called the S60. Volvo has been throwing around the C60 as a potential name for the car, but, for the sake of simplicity, we will continue to call it the convertible S60. The S60 convertible will be a successor for the C70 , and, like the car it replaces, it will feature a folding, hardtop roof with a front fascia identical to the standard S60. The rear lights will also receive some minor changes.

Under the hood there will be the same engine line-up as in the sedan, starting with a 115 HP DRIVe and ending with a T6 turbocharged producing a maximum output of 304 HP and 324.5 lb-ft of torque.

Although we have had the pleasure to take a look at the convertible model of the Volvo S60, we will still have to wait a little longer to receive full specs, prices, and other changes made to the vehicle. That is, of course, if the information isn’t leaked first.

hmm. Although they have built a convertible version for this car I think it would change the fact on how less powerful is the S60! And I think its just makes the situation worst though we all know that hard rooftop would add to the weight of the car and it would probably affects the performance of the car.

Yeah, its not really a good brand after all! I bet this is not the best option for convertibles. There are a lot of other convertible that has an impressive performance and awesome look as well.

Everytime I see a Volvo car, I really want to know what its figure performance, I just want to know if their is a increase in the performance of this car. The speed record of S60 is kind of disappointing.

Sorry for the bad news guys. But this is fake. There is no C60 planned near term. I was there and there was nothing to take a pic of so this pic is photoshopped and not real.

I cannot imagine it looks any different if Volvo indeed builds it.

Looks good, IMO it has the same performance of the s70. except for the convertible rooftop.

I can’t wait any longer in this S60 convertible in becoming a reality, because am so excited to see introductions when the current C70 facelift life cycle draws to a close.

It looks good! Now Volvo needs to create a R version of the S60.

Well it looks more like a transformers to me. I hope there is more space for luggage.
