Volvo is finally waving goodbye to the Ford-era by introducing the Concept Coupe at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Designed to preview the brand's future, the stylish coupe draws inspiration from the P1800 but adopts a modern design with an aggressive front fascia that has a 'floating’ grille which is flanked by distinctive headlights with integrated T-shaped LED daytime running lights. The concept also has a panoramic glass roof, an upright rear end and 21-inch alloy wheels.

The elegant styling carries over to the cabin as the model is nicely equipped with premium leather upholstery, grey wood trim and gloss black accents. Despite the old world charm, the concept is thoroughly modern as it features a head-up display and a large touchscreen infotainment system with a portrait orientation.

Motivation is provided by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines a 2.0-liter Drive-E petrol engine and an electric motor that powers the rear axle. Detailed performance specifications were not released but Volvo says the concept has a combined maximum output of approximately 400 bhp (298 kW) and over 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque.
