Volga V12 Coupe

This $850,000 ruski badboy is a one-off, hand-built car based on the running gear of the BMW 850Csi.



Does that look mean or what?

I love it

The 380bhp beast hits sixty in just over 6 seconds and tops out at over 150mph

Re: Re: Volga V12 Coupe

It's not a Volga per se, like the old ones... its an 850 with Volga styling cues.. i think it looks awesome, really different

Re: Volga V12 Coupe

What part of "one-off" or "one of a kind" did you not get?

Re: Re: Re: Volga V12 Coupe

Wait, it's one of a kind so how many did they make? And where are they planning to sell all of these one-off creations? Looks cool, but hideously overpriced, even for a one of a kind creation.

"Volga" has been sold even before construction - she is to order made. The price is high, but it is an exclusive. Believe, the some people can pay and more for possession in such thing..

Other machine is constructed " for itself " by enthusiasts..
Here all stages of construction:

When you consider the alternatives, bentleys and rollers cost half as much but are far from unique...
