Volvo has announced the new Concept Coupé to be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
It might seem unusual for a company still strongly associated with practical and safe estate cars, the company actually has a rich coupé heritage.
A call out of the blue an hour before a planned drive from the office to Wiltshire for an overnight stay gave me a dilemma.
"Your car is ready for collection. Would you like to pick it up?"
The Bentley had been in the workshop to get to the bottom of the grumbling fuel pump, while the drive shaft boots were also replaced, air conditioning re-gassed and the car was given a fresh MOT. Yes, I've owned it for a year.
Would I pick it up and leave it unattended at the office for up to two days or would I take it on a near 400-mile round trip to Warminster? The question was, of course, redundant as I pulled in to refuel.
