Volvo 262C was designed at Volvo (Sweden), but it surely was produced by coachbuilder Bertone in Turin, Italy. In its day it was criticised for its minor squashed look however there’s no doubt it was one thing slightly bit completely different from the usual Volvo. Nonetheless it’s still very clearly a Volvo product. Throughout its manufacturing run from 1977-1981 simply 6622 coupes had been built.
Until 1980 they have been produced with the adequately powerful 2664cc engine,B27E, but the final 912 automobiles had the larger and more powerful B28E unit. That successful production run was one motive why Bertone was given the job of building the coupe. It was small scale so the actual Volvo plant was not geared up for it.
The the 262C was produced and marketed as an unique luxurious automobile, a prime quality vehicle with slightly bit of sporty enchantment to the rugged body shape, which was first produced in 1974.
Output: 104 kW (Sweden and Australia) The guide additionally states that in many other regions the B27E has a power score of 109kW.
As far as I can verify the difference is in valve timing, in any other case the specs are all as per Sweden and Australia.
