Yeah that thing is damned mean... But I'd hate to have to drive it anywhere on the street. At 100km/h for a few hours on the highway with those straight cut gears would be beyond painful.

Cool vid though.

It's doable. The gears are loudest on accel and decell. When you are cruising at a constant speed it's quite bearable.

Now that, is the coolest 240 in the world in my opinion. Definitely haven't seen that video before, but I have seen stuff about the car in the past. It looks damn good like that. Front lip's a lil low for actual use, but hey, the car is pushed to the extreme.

Except... I'm quite curious as to how they managed to KEEP skinny wheels and tires on the car with all that other money in it? :wtf:

But hot damn is that not the best sounding Volvo ever configured.

Most of you guys are overshooting the price range of this car. I think at most he has about 25G's in there, and thats just the off the shelf parts he made. Everything else (and I mean EVERYTHING) is fabricated by him via CNC. I've seen this car in person (twice) and its way more work than I've seen anyone else do (besides Mats possibly) to a 240.

Yea, i agree with ^^. I would say 15-25k of parts and the rest is lots of time. Most of what he has done was fab'd by him or machined by him.

Still, one of the best 240's out there.
