Pehr G Gyllenhammar's 1981 Volvo 262C on a trailer behind the new XC90
The new Volvo XC90 and a Volvo 262C from 1981. The Volvo 262C was specially commissioned by Pehr G Gyllenhammar, CEO and President of Volvo from 1971 until 1993. The charismatic head of Volvo wanted his cars to be red and, although this was not a standard colour for Volvo cars, he naturally got his wish. Even the lavish leather interiors are red. Today, the car belongs to the Volvo Museum.
