Volvo's ultra-thin, see-through console


This is one of 3 available console variations/finishes for the next-gen Volvo S40/V50. I've seen it referred to as either the "high-tech","Ice Blue"or "Iced Aqua" console. Besides the fact that you can see through all the wiring/connectors, the console is so thin that you can actually store stuff or stretch your legs behind the console.

Here's photos of the just-introduced (in Europe) Volvo V50 wagon:



And for more info & photos of the next-gen Volvo S40:

That may be indeed the most stupid thing I have ever seen.

Shit. I remember the Swatch phone now. I had one. My sister had a clear red one.

They kicked ass because if you had somenone else there with you, the base could work as another handset and you could both talk at the same time.
