Volvo 240 & The City


The Volvo 240 is one of those cars that can look different each time you see it. Wrought in a stunningly simple three box format (or two, as in the perennially popular estate version), it is a classic of utilitarian design.

No wonder then that a discerning spotter of automotive simplicity has picked out the Volvo 240 as subject of a fascinating Instagram feed.

240 and the City is just as it appears to be. Like the subject of its lens it is a simple series of perpendicular captures of the humble but integrated car.

It’s purely in the spirit of Influx Street Spots that our Scandinavian soul-brother is documenting the loveliness on our side streets. How long til the 240 is recognised as a bona fide classic.

Right now we reckon.
