Seeing the 480 nose as on the red car in this image, I can imagine the designer may have been inspired by the nose of the Ferrari 412.
after over 10 years parted with the 1995 Volvo 480 ES 2.0

I should have gone there, it was only 40 miles from the ferry! Though I would have had a discussion at home because the ferry costs € 500 :(
