4 doors, seats 2 in driver cockpit, has 2 rows of seats which face each other in the back - can seat up to 6 in the rear. There's a dual clear glass and black-out partition between the driver and the rear.
This is an extremely rare vehicle. Factory built in Sweden and imported to the United States by the Swedish Consulate. There are only 2 of these in the U.S. and around 18 in the World. The retail price of the S80 limo is approximately $140,000 USD.
"The current official car of the King of Sweden is a stretched Volvo S80, escorted by the Swedish Security Service in BMW X5, BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class models. For official occasions like state visits there is an Daimler DS420. There are also a number of different cars in the Royal Mews, which are used on special occasions."
This car has a normal left-side steering wheel and is EPA certified for sale in all 50-states. The limousine is privately owned and used for pleasure in Los Angeles, CA.
Mechanically the limousine is in excellent condition, no known problems or defects. The air conditioner is ice-cold. It's been used on every occasion with extreme confidence of its mechanical fitness.
Overall external condition of the limousine is fair. Here is the list of known external defects:
1) 6-8" area of paint bubbling on the right side of the top
2) Tinted windows have various scratches and the back window tinting shows peeling cracks
3) Various plastic pieces in cockpit (frame around the drive light switch) are either missing or not correctly attached.
4) Interior passenger arm-rest on right side is loose and plastic inserts are broken.
5) Left side passenger window (two-seats facing the rear) is off-track and does not slide down correctly.
6) Front right bumper was strained resulting in slight denting under the hood and the wheel cowl plastic is separated. This is the biggest known problem, but existed when the limo was acquired and has been duct taped shut, but needs attention.
7) Externally the car has various missing or broken reflectors, missing plastic accent plastic on edge.
8) The left and right door panels have scraped paint and or areas that are scratched and dented where the limo was incorrectly navigated around tight corners.
9) There are many small areas with paint chips, cracks, or other blemishes that warrant inspection or repair.
10) The front headlights have some interior fogging on one or both sides.
The above repairs and paint condition were quoted approximately $1800 to address. If you wanted to be extremely picky/thorough and fix every last minor problem so the car is absolutely flawless, you would probably want to budget around $3000.
Since it was used for pleasure, mostly in the evening, it was never pursued to fix all the blemishes and external defects. The limo's hosted celebrity friends, business associates, and guests without any real embarrassment of the aforementioned problems.

After decades of cat-and-mouse battle waged between Holden and Ford, Australia's V8 Supercars series has expanded considerably. Mercedes and Nissan both joined the grid last season, and Volvo has followed suit this year. So when 2014 championship kicked off earlier this month in Adelaide, everyone was watching to see who would come out on top.

The answer is Holden, which took first place in all three of the weekend's races. In fact the General Motors division locked out the podium in the first and third races and took first and third places in the second race, letting just one other manufacturer onto the podium the entire weekend - and that was Volvo. The Polestar S60 scored second place on its first race weekend, beating all the Nissan Altimas, the Mercedes E63 AMGs, the Ford Falcons and most of the Holden Commodores.
Now that's hardly winning the championship, but it's a very solid debut. And that point was not lost on the people back at headquarters in Sweden, who are already thinking about making a roadgoing version of the race-spec V8 Supercar.
Each year at the Detroit Auto Show, the top vehicle designs are recognized with the prestigious EyesOn Design award for production and concept vehicles. This year, the 32 EyesOn Design judges (comprised of current and former vehicle designers including Chrysler designer and SRT president Ralph Gilles, Kia designer Peter Schreyer and retired General Motors designer Wayne Cherry) handed out three awards for the Best Concept Vehicle, Best Production Vehicle and Innovative Use of Color, Graphics, and Materials.

Beating out the Mercedes C-Class and Ford F-150, the 2015 Ford Mustang was named the Best Production Vehicle as the top auto show debut at this year's Detroit show. The 2014 Volvo Concept XC Coupe took home awards as the Best Concept Vehicle and for its Innovative Use of Color, Graphics and Materials.
Considering the Volvo's primer grey hue and subtle orange accents, it was a rather surprising winner for Innovative Use of Color, Graphics, and Materials over flashier concepts like the Toyota FT-1 and our Editors' Choice top pick, the Kia GT4 Stinger. Other vehicles in the running for the concept car award include the GT4 Stinger and Audi Allroad Shooting Brake
Take a close look at the cabin of the Volvo Concept Estate shown above. One of the big features on the fancy, brown shooting brake is an all-new user interface called, well, it doesn't really have a name, at least not one Volvo is revealing.
The refreshingly nameless system looks seriously impressive based on the short video that accompany's the system's press release. The jewel of the whole interface is a sizable touchscreen that manages most every in-car function save for a few vital functions like volume, hazard lights and other systems that still demand a more tactile interface.
"The basic idea is to organize controls and information in a perfectly intuitive and user- friendly way. Everything is exactly where you expect it to be, making the drive more enjoyable, efficient, and safe," Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo's Senior Vice President of Design, said in a statement.
