NEW OLD MODELS FOUND
The tag says it all. It's all about older models which I have discovered only recently.
This model of the Volvo S80 was a gift by Volvo for their guests for the 2008 launch of the S80 in Indonesia. The model comes in a special decorated and tagged window cardboard box. The 1:43 scale model is made in China by Cararama/Hongwell. I have no clue how many of these boxes have been offered by Volvo to their customers in Indonesia.

UPDATED - Volvo S80L by Motorart
A Dutch Volvo fan just found out that Motorart has produced the Volvo S80L at least in two different colors back in 2011. There has not only been a black model ( see here ) but also a second version painted oyster gray. Both versions are 1:18 scale models made of diecast. Both models reproduce Volvo's top of the line model S80L which is fitted in China with the T6 engine and all wheel drive. Motorart had revealed to a Dutch customer that the black one was sold out and that they do not plan to produce another run. But they never told that person that they produced the Volvo S80L in a second color. It is pretty hard to find any details or a copy of this scale model on the internet. I'm sorry but I can't help you to provide you with a model. I have no clue were you could get one.

Volvo S80L by Motorart
Motorart has produced the Volvo S80L as a 1:18 scale diecast model. This S80L was just offered in China. Motorart has revealed that it is sold out and that they do not plan to produce another run. Motorart showed that scale model for several years at the Toy Fair in Nürnberg (D). It is pretty strange that we hear only now about this Volvo scale model. It is even more strange that it is very very difficult to find a copy on the internet. I'm sorry but I can't help you to provide you with a model. I have no clue were you could get one.
The Swiss wholesaler Waldmeier was offering six years ago a Volvo S80 in a special decorated window box. The box is labeled ‘Swiss Collection’ and contains a Volvo S80 decorated as a Swiss Police car. The 1:43 scale diecast model is made by Cararama. The model is available under item # 1022.20076. The white Volvo S80 features a gray and beige interior. The car has a correct Swiss numberplate : VD-24189. This model has previously also been offered in Oliex and Hongwell 'Junior Rescue' boxes.
A seller from Israel is offering several Volvo scale models representing Police cars from Russia and Belarus. The 1:43 scale models are apparently custom made in the Ukraine. The seller did not want to share more infos and did not want to reveal more details about the various versions. The Police cars are based on redecorated models by Minichamps and Motorart. The level of details and the quality of the decals are of a very high standard. This is also reflected in the price tag. The average cost for a model are 80 €.

Volvo S80 crash test
This Volvo S80 obviously used for a crash test is a one off model. It was modeled based on existing photos and videos. A 1:43 scale model from Cararama was used to create this unique and unusual model. Only one car has been produced by a Polish modeler. The car was sold to a Dutch Volvo fan.
Personal note : I'm aware that this a one off model but I think it is worse to be presented.
