New Volvo S80 Pictures Leaked!

Pictures of the new Volvo S80 seem to have leaked. Here are the individual photos. There is also an official Volvo page with some info on the upcoming models. Highlights include:

Well done Volvo. I like the two extra creases on the bonnet, visible in this photo. But I think they should stick a turbo on that 3.2 litre engine as well and get an engine option between 235 and 315 bhp. Amazingly, the new inline 6-cylinder engines will be more compact than the present five-cyliner. How do they do it?

Of course, there will be a nice powerful stereo to play with as well.

Update: I have information that there indeed will be a light pressure turbo 3.0 litre six with 285 bhp, as well as a normally aspirated 2.8 litre unit.
