Volvo VESC

Volvo VESC, the Volvo Experimental Safety Car, was an ESV concept car[1] built by Volvo in 1972.[2][3] Its design emphasized car safety, and many of the ideas (especially the front) would later appear on the Volvo 240.

With safety features such as crumple zones, rollover protection, a "disappearing" steering wheel, anti-lock braking system, automatic seat belts, airbags, pop-up head restraints, interior trim and reversing, or backup camera, the VESC attracted enormous attention.[citation needed]
