The top: Raising or lowering a power-operated convertible top on any car will draw stares from passers-by. But the ballet performed by the Volvo C70's roof draws applause.
As on most convertibles, the trunk opens backwards. Then the three sections break apart and, moving as if blown back by the wind, they stack up over the open trunk. Finally, they lower down and are swallowed into the car.
Rare for a convertible, the C70 looks equally sharp with the top up or down.
