Is this a 480 in The World's End?

Here you can talk about the joy owning a Volvo 480 brings. Non-technical discussions take place here, like what is the difference between an ES and a S version.

Is this a 480 in The World's End?

'Evening all

I was watching the World's End tonight, when in the background I saw a very familiar shape, but simply couldn't be sure without consulting the rest of the community.

In a scene taking place in a Motorway services car park, in the background, one can see what looks like the front d/side quarter of a wedgie, with what look like Pollux wheels, and orange reflectors. In another shot one can see a slight kink upwards on the nose - lights up perhaps?


When I first saw the film I jumped when I thought I spotted it, now I have the photo I think I can also make out the quarterlight

What do you think?

('tis a very interesting film indeed)
