Like many European companies at the time, Volvo has tried to emulate the styling of big, decadent American cars time and time again. (Read on for another example, but no spoilers.) In the Amazon’s case, its mini-Chrysler looks are still subtle, eye-catching, and handsome today, more so in coupe form, even more so in wagon form. From some angles, it looks like a derby hat, or a Morris Oxford. It also happened to be the first Volvo—and subsequently, the first car—to feature three-point seat belts. How cool is the Amazon? Here’s one that’s faster than a Ferrari 458 Italia. If you lose to a Volvo wagon in any other circumstances, the ghost of Enzo Ferrari comes back to life and revokes your lease agreement. Clearly, Volvo should have brought out a sportier car to compete. Such as:
