780 T5-R Coupé

A T5-R engine? Really? In a classic Volvo 780 Bertone Coupé? You must be kidding!

But hey… why not! The T5-R engine swap might be a little complicated in reality, I agree. Imagination is free and to me it’s fun to think outside the box. I kept the classic, straight lines and just modded a few details to achieve a look that is subtle, yet a tad more aggressive. Wouldn’t hurt to have a couple more ponies under that hood, though…

    Just came across your site and really like what I see. This one is close to perfect. I would love to see this one further modified with smoother bumper covers and possibly as a hardtop vs. 2-door Sedan.
    I would love to learn how to do this. Is this self taught or learned in formal schooling?

    Do you ever do requests?
