    Thread: Another XCR Pic

      Another XCR Pic

      Okay, I redid the XCR. The other one was more playing around with what I might do to an XC should I own it. Not that this one is much different, but this one is made using elements of the Rs (introduced since I did the first image).

      Here's the theory on an XCR. Volvo has done all the dev, certification and crash testing on the V70R. So, build an XC outfitted like an R, but with body-colored XC ground effects and, I'd recomend, a height adjustable suspension to make it comparable to the allroad.

      The silver side cladding is ORE inspired.

      I shared the idea with Volvo. We'll see what they think. If you like the idea and would consider buying one, post here. That doesn't mean they will build it, but if all the dev they have to do on the car is the suspension, I don't know why they wouldn't. The XC outsells the V70 by a significant margin. I wonder if that same percentage would carry over to the XCR. Regardless, I bet it'd get them a lot of press in the print mags.

      what about the brushed aluminum roof rails, like the S4 Avant?

      D'oh!
      After looking at this XC, I have second thoughts on persuading my dad to get the T5.

      Well done

      Exactly! Looks great George, but brushed roof rails would be even better, for the final touch...

      Might be going overboard here....but to separate the XCR further from the V70R, how about some brushed aluminum mirror caps. Maybe try some 6 or 7 spoke style wheels....probably more in tune with the XC.

      Great pic, George!

      Looks sweet George. Definetely like it.

      The brushed aluminum rack would look nice. Not sure how the silver pieces would look on a lighter color car though. But it does look sharp on black.

      What do u think of this?

      Just did some minor changes.

      I know it sucks. My first few attempts at photoediting software.

      Sorry if I broke any copyright issues.

      Re: Another XCR Pic (kianzzz)

      Great job kianzzz! Love both pics. I definetely like the silver looking roof rack much better than the black ones. Can't decide on which wheel color I like. I just like both of them.

      Don't like the wheel size or the drop though. Not my liking, but that's just my personal opinion.

      Another one. XC with Almathea Wheelies. 17" Probably.

      I hope i'm not posting too much and sucking bandwith

      Re: Another XCR Pic (kianzzz)

      LOL! Thanks! It's a bit too high now. I like them lowered but not slammed... You don't have to redo it for me though.

      Like the new one with the Almathea rims.

      Hehe. I wish my dad would do that to his XC.

      He MIGHT be getting an ECU and dual exhaust upgrade plus the rear spoiler for our XC

      *fingers crossed*

      Hey kianzz, do you mind if I eventually add those to our Fictional Volvos gallery? They're great.

      BTW, for those wishing for the silver roof rails, it looks like some of the future special edition V70s will get them, so at least they'll be in the partsbin.
