Volvo has unveiled the new C70 convertible here in Frankfurt and the 2010 model looks much sportier than the outgoing model. However, we have one bone to pick with the C70 as a whole. The current model is priced at $40,000, which we feel is way too much considering shoppers in the market have better options. Volvo has yet to announced any pricing details on the 2010 C70.
Oh, one more thing, taking down and putting up the roof takes 30 seconds, which is way to long for any convertible these days.
Follow through for the high-res gallery.
