The Volvo 262C was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1977.


The 262C were a 2-door coupé with four comfortable seats; this was possible as the car had the same wheelbase as the Volvo 264. In addition, it had a different roof line from the 4-door cars on which it was based. The windscreen sloped more sharply and the car had a very wide C-pillar. In the first years, the cars were painted silver and had a black vinyl roof. Later, other exterior colours were offered. The interior was very exclusive and included leather and wood.


The car was designed at Volvo in Sweden, but Bertone in Italy produced it.
