Obviously, This Isn’t Your Typical Volvo 262C Bertone Coupe [w/Video]

Bertone‘s effort to turn the classic Volvo 200 series into a luxury coupe aimed primarily at the US market resulted in the 262C built from 1977 to 1981. It was about as elegant as a lacquered brick wearing an Italian hat, but what can you expect from a car based on the 200…

One of the 6,622 examples of the two-door model assembled at Bertone’s Turin factory landed in the hands of KAO Customs from Las Vegas, which had the bright green idea of turning it into a one-of-a-kind build for the 2011 SEMA Show.

Some four years later, the customized Volvo 262C has made its way on eBay where it’s listed for sale with a ‘Buy it now’ price of $37,900 or best offer.

Under the modified and widened body with the green paint and black racing stripes lies a tuned 376 cubic inch (6.3-liter) LS3 V8 from GM that’s hooked up to a 4-speed automatic driving the rear 18-inch wheels that are shod in 345/30R18 tires (up front it gets 18-inch alloys in 245/40ZR18 rubber).

No output numbers are mentioned, but the listing states that the street-legal Volvo is “a very fast car” that “is sure to knock socks off everywhere it goes”.
