Volvo S80 Made in Malaysia

Volvos keep looking better in each and every reincarnation! This latest version (happens to be the second generation) of the S80 was spotted along the NKVE Damansara exit.

ps. This is a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) model manufactured here in Shah Alam, by Swedish Motor Assembly, Kuala Lumpur(Would you believe, Volvo has been manufacturing in Malaysia since 1968?).
It costs a very reasonable RM$268,500, and features a 2.5 Turbo engine.
In comparison, the CBU (Completely Built Up, or fully imported) S80 3.2 V6 goes for RM398,000!
