Volvo 850: A Block of Butter.


Recommended Posts

I just read that Peter Horbury has passed away. RIP.

He's well known for making Volvo less square, with the creation of Volvo ECC concept back in 1992, which then became the P2 range of cars. That design language continues to evolve without completely changing every 5 years like BMWs. IMHO Volvos are still great looking for moderns and it's thanks to the guy.

Lesser known fact is that he also had a hand in the design of the 850, with Jan Wilsgaard being head of design then (and it being the last car he did before handing it over to Horbury).
