The new Inscription edition of the C70 has arrived, according to Volvo Car UK. This is the first four-seater convertible car in the world. It was revealed during the launch that a three-piece folding hard top will be available as standard. Unique exterior details are feature in this new Inscription edition. It comes with the painted grille and a set of black 18-inch wheels.
Among the exclusive interior features are its Sovereign Hide upholstery and a leather-covered dashboard. The Volvo C70 Inscription has a starting price of £33,855 for the D3 SE Inscription. Orders will start to be taken starting mid-November and deliveries will begin in February 2012.
Its production volume worldwide is limited to just 2,000 units annually. Doug Speck, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Corporation, said that the Inscription is based on its “human-centric Designed Around You philosophy,” which offers plenty of kerb appeal and wonderful details for consumers who like convertibles and coupés.
The Inscription could be combined with both five-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel engines that are available in the UK. These are the D4 (177 hp/400 Nm) and D3 (150 hp/350 Nm). It is offered in three colors: Black Stone (Solid), Black Sapphire (Metallic) and Ice White (Solid).
It is also fitted with the exclusive 18-inch black Midir alloy wheels that have black detailing and polished spokes and outer rim. Contrasting chrome surrounds the high-gloss paint on the grille and the LED Daytime Running Lights near the front of the Inscription edition. This gives the C70 its distinctive "face.”
The interior also features a distinctive new look that echoes the unique exterior, including: An exclusive leather-covered dashboard with contrasting stitching; Sovereign Hide upholstery in Off Black or Calcite with the same contrasting stitching as on the dashboard, handbrake lever and carpets; "Inscription" embroidered on the front headrests; Special Inscription carpets and handbrake lever; Steering wheel and gear shift knob with aluminium inlays; Sports pedals with aluminium inlay; Aluminium inlay in the iconic ultra-slim centre stack is standard, Black or Nordic Light Oak as an option.
