The 262C was a wildcard in the Volvo pack, an attempt to build a luxury coupé. Certainly it was distinctive, although the lowered black-vinyl clad roof with swept-back and chunky rear pillars plonked on top of a 260 lower body gave a distinctly tank-like appearance. However, the sumptuous leather-bound interior certainly pampered any occupants. Engines were the same as the standard 260s; thus a 140bhp 2664cc V6 at first, followed by a 155bhp 2849cc V6 towards the end of production. Definitely mean and moody but not all that magnificent, although Volvo aficionados adore them.
The VOLVO 262C release date is to be announced on Saloon.
