The Volvo 400 series is one of the oddities in Volvo's history. Normally known for making boxy, sensible family cars, the 400 series was a bit of a departure from that. These were sleeker mid-sized cars, intended to bring a younger audience into the brand, and were the first front wheel drive and transverse-engined Volvos too. The sleekness is especially apparent in the Coupe, which is the most quirky and striking of all the 400 series models. They weren't exactly unpopular, either; I remember seeing many of these on the road back when I was a kid in middle-class suburban London! This video by Big Car talks about the story of how the 400 series came to be and, like many of his videos, it's a very interesting story!
