Volvo S90 revealed in die-cast form?

Volvo's new flagship sedan, the S90, is coming next year. We recently saw a mule out testing, but thanks to the magic of the internet, photos of a die-cast version have leaked online. According to Swedish sources, it's the real deal.

Images of the 1:43-scale model originally appeared on a Chinese website, but sources allegedly told Swedish magazine Teknikens Värld that this is, in fact, what the S90 will look like. That's a good thing – even in model form, this is one seriously attractive sedan. It borrows styling cues from Volvo's excellent Concept Coupe, and includes the Thor's Hammer LED headlight design that's currently found on the XC90 crossover.

When it launches, the S90 will replace the aging S80 in Volvo's global lineup. It'll be based on the same Scalable Product Architecture as the larger XC90, meaning it'll likely share powertrains, including that nifty twin-charged, four-cylinder hybrid T8 setup. After the S90 sedan launches, a V90 wagon (hot!) is said to follow.

Let us know what you think of the S90 – assuming it's real – in comments. Head over to Teknikens Värld for a look at the car's rear end, too.
