    IMO this is the best aspect of the 918.

    Pity, it will be the most seldom seen view.

    It's what my original order would looked like, well, almost, it would have been with that wheel in platinum satin.

    It's just so cool that he first pull out with electric power almost but then the engine roars to life, sounded so good.

    During my visit one of the prospective buyer was 6'4", he doesn't fit and ended up cancelling his order.

    There was no possible way to move the seat down and his eye line to the gauges was blocked by the steering wheel, his head barely fit with the roof on and if he wears a helmet his head would be sideways.

    Someone mentioned building a bubble top for one side of the roof for clearance as a joke. Smiley

    Thank god WW is no longer at the helm, or he would have commission a hunchback of Notre Dame roof line for the 918. Imagine THAT!!

    Zlatan's size is more suitable for the Volvos he advertises. "I want to live I want to die in Sweden"

    It is slightly revamped version of the Swedish national anthem "Du gamla, du fria". Spoken by Zlatan.

    In an interview about the ad he said:

    "This is as Sweden looks like 2014. I don't speak perfect Swedish, but that's the way it is. A mix everywhere. I can be Swedish all the same. We are all different yet similar. My father is from Bosnia and Muslim. Mum is from Croatia and Catholic. But I was born in Sweden and am a Swedish citizen. You can't change that. That's the situation, accept it."

    I liked it very much. I saw it for the first time on TV at the half time of a football match.

    Zlatan is a footballer known for his toughness and also the landscape in the film is very rugged. Those characteristics immediately associate with what Volvo are trying to convey for their SUVs/Estates, toughness and go everywhere ability.

    Volvo is Chinese owned but the advert ends with "Made by Sweden". Like Zlatan the son of immigrants was made by Sweden into what he is in sport.

    I am not saying I would by a Volvo on the basis of this advert but I might be induced to visit Sweden in wintertime!

    Lars997, might be a bit difficult to understand the impact of a Volvo commercial with Zlatan Ibrahimovic speaking the national anthem during an election year, where racist voices are increasingly getting attention, if you are not Swedish.

    Anyway, I am driving the 918 Spyder on Sunday! Really like Zlatan´s all black spec!

     


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Good points by all above.

    It's interesting how elementally different an experience can be depending on the context and individual perspective.  I really like getting the insight that comes out of these exchanges!
