What is this interior? Is that an S60? What cars came with this color? Does it fit in a wagon? ..oh, fold-down back seats, maybe not.

Butterscotch, mmm... Wouldn't that look good in a black wagon.

Here in Jacksonville Florida I have seen that interior in a R sedan. Another odd interior color was in the same era C70 called Lava Red as I recall. Both were quite dramatic and sold in cars here. I sure hope Volvo brings them back in the future. Have you found one yet? June

BlackBart, Brett Borders (Denver) comes across Nordkap (blue) and Atacama interior sets every so often. They're not cheap. You might want to check with him. You can find him on Facebook... he has an account here but I don't think he uses it. Let me know if you can't find him and I'll dig up his email.

It's a very rare interior, obviously. I think the unicorniest Volvo unicorn for me would be Flash Green over Atacama, in a 6MT. I don't know if this car is auto or manual, but here's the colors: https://www.autotrader.com/car-news/vol ... aca-259807

Saab put that color into black and dark green 9000's. It's "beyond classy".

Like an "oriental" rug, it is to be treated like a neutral.

Wowzers. Not sure I could handle Minty Mint, but those seats! Would you say in person it's more orange, or butterscotch (whatever that means!), or rusty...?

I have many photos saved for this very reason - deep rich interiors that can just make a car....

A very fuzzy pic of an Alfa 75 RHD sedan - a color I've never seen and I don't know if it's factory or not.

Atacama, nice. Don't you love it when cool colors are named for real places? All the Land Rover colors used to be specific places - around The Empire of course, pip pip.

And BMW 2002's in that crisp white Chamonix!

Interesting comment to note about fitment in different model years....

http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread ... styleid=14

"I recently completed the Nordkap to Atacama Swap. It was hard work due to the weight of the seats - but still a fun job. My car is an 04 - therefore only the 04 interior fit, due to fitment/wiring changes in the 05+."
