Swedish steel with Italian style by Jimi Jam from Atlanta on 08/14/2005. Trim: 1989 Volvo 780 Turbo, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It is a very stylish car. Hand built in Italy at the Bertone motor works company. This is the same company that has designed many other exotic cars like Ferrari's and lambo's. It is a fairly quick car running about as strong as a Mustang GT. It handles very nice and smooth. It was designed to be a touring car not a sports car. For this reason the car is quite at home on the open road. The car cruises very nice at all speeds but finds it's own when traveling between 90 and 110 MPH. Just keep in mind that the only real Volvo stuff on this car is the drivetrain, which is legendary for reliability.
Cons: The only real drawback to this car is that it is a very exclusive vehicle. In 1989 there were only 1499 built, and because it is a custom 2 door body built in Italy Volvo parts from other modles will not fit the 780 Bertone. This makes for very expensive repairs. I priced a tail light assymbly for mine and it was over $400 new and not much cheaper in good used condition.
Overall review: This a a very fun and rewarding car to drive, and will last forever if properly maintained just like other volvos.
