Volvo North America and Portland-based Volvo specialists IPD are going to debut the XC70 All Terrain concept car at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas. Though it's based on a production model XC70, ipd has managed to squeeze 408hp out of the normal V70 R sport wagon's 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine [which, at 300hp, is already 92hp more than the standard XC70's turbo-5 puts out].
Obviously, though, it's the encrustations of the plated underbody, the 5-ton winch, the new, custom bumpers and skirts, and the generator and gas can perched on the custom roofrack that catch the eye first. The black and grey neoprene interior, on the other hand, just kind of sneaks up on you, making you wonder why neoprene isn't an available option already?
In real life, of course, that roof rack would be carrying a Pack 'n Play and a cooler full of breast milk. And Aunt Edna's frail, dead body, wrapped in a "a brilliant orange Saffron and Titanium" utility tarp that "that pays homage to the stunning Baja, Mexico sunsets."
