Italian design with Swedish sensibility - this 1980 Volvo 262C Bertone Coupe offers the best of it all. So check out all the best of a distinct classic that's also available for such an obtainable price.
Volvo had a partnership with the legendary design house Bertone that injected a whole new sense of style. After all, the company has its own 242 two-door, but the 262C was a true grand touring coupe. The lower roof, longer doors, and better proportions injected a new sense of style into this very sensible brand. This example is highly original, and even the low odometer is believed to reflect its full mileage. Plus, the Coronado Gold paint shows all the right signs of being the original application. If you love old Volvos, then this one feels aged to perfection. But it's an acquired taste. Those who are just looking for a distinct and sturdy classic will likely use the value price to invest in areas, like the paint. No matter your intentions, the full appeal here is just how straight and complete the full package is. The panels line up nicely so that the wraparound trim looks like an almost unbroken line. And you have all the best details, like the Bertone badging, mud flaps, and turbine-style alloys.
The interior is another Italian specialty. They gave these wide comfortable seats done in supple leather. Just like the exterior, this has a terrific worn-in Volvo feel. So it's great for purists, but we also wouldn't blame you for wanting to make some updates. Part of the 262C's luxury image is rooted in the level of features it offers. This includes power windows, power locks, wood-like trim, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and an electric rear defogger. This was also a factory A/C car, but it will need components to return the function. And you'll appreciate how this feels like a proper European touring car with a grippy steering wheel, full gauges with tach, and a well-placed stick shift.
Under the hood is the 2.3-liter motor. The PRV engine that originally came in these is a fine motor, but if you're a Volvo fan, then you know exactly why the swap to a fuel-injected red block motor is so desirable. It's a strong powerhouse that you take full control of with the four-speed manual transmission. A car like this was made for driving and Volvo wants you to go on the brand tour. A supple ride, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and electronic overdrive make for a confident cruiser for trips near or far.
This Volvo coupe is a limited edition from the same design house that gave you the best Lamborghinis. So it's rare, stylish, and quite fun...all for a value price. Call today!!!
