The 2011 SEMA Auto Show is over so now it’s time to focus on the next motor show of the month: the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show starting November 16th. Just a few days ago, Subaru announced the BRZ STI Concept’s scheduled appearance in California, and now Volvo has announced a special edition C70. Called the C70 Inscription, this new edition will be offered worldwide and will be limited to 2,000 units a year.

The new C70 Inscription will be offered in only three exterior colors: Black Stone (Solid), Black Sapphire (Metallic), and Ice White (Solid). It will be distinguished by 18-inch wheels painted in black with polished spokes and outer perimeter, a high-gloss paint on the grille, and LED Daytime Running Lights.

For the interior, the model will add an exclusive leather-covered dashboard with contrasting stitching and Sovereign Hide upholstery in Off Black or Calcite with the same contrasting stitching as on dashboard, handbrake lever, and carpets. A sporty feeling will be added with a new set of aluminum pedals, a steering wheel and gear shift knob with aluminum inlays. Because this is a special edition, it will also feature "Inscription" logos on the front headrests, carpets, and handbrake lever.

UPDATE 12/15/11: Volvo has officially released the pricing details for the C70 Inscription package. If you’re interested in getting one, you’re going to need to shell out $3,900 for the opportunity to have one put into your C70. Add that to the $40,450 cost of the car itself and you’re looking at a price of around $44,350.

Luxurious and extravagant. Your date would be so unforgettable with this car. The glossy black color adds more beauty to this car. $44,350 is really worthy for it.

This car is so luxurious. I love the glossy black paint and the bluish glow of the head lamps. The wheels are just right to match the overall appearance.

The black paint looks good with this Inscription. It was totally awesome. I hope to see more footage of the dashboard and the whole interior—including the seats.
