Someone Tried To Make A Volvo Less Boring By Turning It Into A Wannabe Mustang

Offbeat

Making a car uglier doesn't make it less boring.

When building cars Volvo now focuses on both looks and safety but that wasn’t always so. Its old models were known for being boxy and boring. So what’s a gearhead with a boring Volvo to do? Well, if you’re like this English bloke then you slap a Shelby Mustang face on it and hope for the best. This unique custom job is based off of the Volvo S70 R and is truly a sight to behold. It has a tuned 2.3-liter inline-five good for 250 horsepower. That's the good news.

The bad news is it doesn't currently run and that it needs electric work. So let's recap: Up for sale is a decent and safe car that does not run, needs electrical work and has aridiculous body kit on. Now the question becomes how much does it cost. The answer is £920, or about $1,400USD. That’s not awful for a 1997 Volvo that needs engine work and full body kitremoval. If you see light through this darkness then you head over to eBayUK and place your bid.
