Volvo has launched the four-seater C70 Ice White, powered by a 2.0D engine and on the road for £24,495.
The motor features £2,350 worth of extra equipment over the standard model, and is available to order now.
The interior includes Calcite leather upholstery with black leather trim and aluminium inlays, with the exterior featuring 18" Midir diamond cut alloy wheels.
The unique three-piece metal roof goes up or down in less than 30 seconds, with the comprehensive equipment levels including Electronic Climate Control with Air Quality System (AQS), front fog lights, steering wheel mounted audio controls, electric windows and mirrors, alarm and a vehicle information centre. The C70 also comes with cruise control and Dynamic Stability and Traction Control.
Peter Rask, managing director at Volvo Car UK, said: "The Volvo C70 is Volvo's most aspirational car and with the addition of the Ice White benefits, this car will stand out even further from the crowd. We have seen a huge increase in the popularity of our 'Ice White' colour from customers, especially on C30, hence the launch of this model in time for summer.
"And whether it's a sun-blessed season or a traditional British washout, C70 owners can enjoy as much or as little of the weather as they like, thanks to the car's versatile hard-top convertible."
All Volvo C70 models come with a three-year/60,000 mile peace of mind warranty package.
The Ice White is powered by a four-cylinder 2.0D diesel engine (136PS), which emits 161g/km CO2 and returns up to 46.3mpg fuel economy on the combined cycle.
