I'm in love. if this had a killer motor in it, then it would be perfect, I think I'm going to need 17" 407 steelies for my cars!

Pretty much a dream car, I love Bertones even if I don't fit!

Thank you VQ and all you others too!

Daaaamn, seeing the pictures in the "post pics of your Volvo thread" I didn't realize it wasn't just plain black. The colour is awesome. And the car as well. Damn. Very well done.

That motor looks promising for sure.

I like the new rear wheel arches too - that looks much more integrated.

I'm going to echo the herd here and say amazing job. Never before has a 262C Bertone looked so desirable. You have set a benchmark in cool.
