Busted: Someone Tries to Pass Mystery Concept as a Volvo Sedan, Fools Swedes Including AMS

Just moments ago, Carscoops reader Krsv83 posted a comment in our post on the mystery concept car that we showed you last Friday, regarding a new and allegedly official image of the study, purportedly revealing it’s a Volvo saloon model, according to reports from Swedish newspaper SVD and the Swedish edition of AutoMotorundSport magazine.

Well, after taking a look at the new image and comparing it to photos of a previous Volvo concept model, and in particular the 2011 Universe sedan study, it’s pretty clear to me that the image has been doctored.

In other words, it’s the work of a photoshop artist who simply reversed the original image and pasted it in on the older Volvo study as you can see from the following gallery.

Who knows, it might turn out to be a Volvo study after all, but it certainly isn’t the Volvo shown in this picture…
