Volvo 262 Bertone Coupé V6 — 1979

Volvo's most expensive car in the seventies, it’s a lovely mix of Swedish design and Italian flair. The car is in very good working condition. Reimport from the Texas, with a new engine.

"Complete and nice bodywork, with good paint with some smaller rust blisters near the rear mud guards. It has a great interior and technically in top condition."


The car was designed for the important US market to raise Volvo's status among wealthy Americans on the West Coast of the United States. Most cars were sold and driven in the dry states, and only on weekends. This car came to Sweden in 2018.
In Sweden, a replacement engine was installed at a cost of SEK 55,000.
According to the meter, the car has gone 108,000 miles, which is equivalent to 170,000 km. This is considered to be true given the good condition of the car.

Facts about the model

I mars 1977 stod en ny Volvomodell på bilsalongen i Genevé som redan från start var tänkt som en bil för bara några få. När Volvo 1800ES försvann 1973 saknade Volvo ett riktigt flaggskepp och Jan Wilsgaard fick i uppdrag att skapa en fyrsitsig sportig coupé med basen i den kommande 264-modellen. Frånsett själva det låga kupétaket med den kraftigt vinklade framrutan var allt 264. Eftersom Volvo inte själva hade produktionsresurser lät man Bertone i Turin modifiera karosserna och ansvara för lackeringen. Sammanlagt tillverkades 6 622 vagnar mellan 1977 och 1980 då modellen lades ner. 262 Bertone följde samma utvecklingskurva som övriga 260-serien – vilket bland annat innebar andra bakljus och ny baklucka 1979.
1976 och 1977 tillverkades även en 262 med vanlig tvådörrarskaross. Både 262 och 262C var främst avsedda för amerikanska marknaden.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
