No, it’s not a Volvo, even though some of the lines may look a tad familiar. It’s the Geely KC Concept, a fastback-based sedan making its debut in Shanghai.

Penned by Peter Horbury and Ken Ma, the Chinese automaker’s VP of design and design director respectively, the 4.69 metre-long vehicle features an exterior design that borrows heavily from classical Chinese history points, so it goes.

Elements include headlights and grill that combine to form a unified graphic lending an impression of distinctive stone bridges featuring heavily in classical Chinese art to an interior that reflects traditional Chinese artwork through its dashboard and instrument panel, again in the style of a stone bridge.

The KC Concept’s interior also gets dressed up in jade and fine red wood bits, with warm-white ambient lighting playing contrast to the dark red traditional Chinese elements to help create better ambience in the cabin. Chinese way, anyone?
