Unveiling our Volvo 760 GLE from the early 1980s. On first glance, the model epitomizes the safe, solid Volvo image but in real life, its performance and technical characteristics took it a cut above the rest. Volvo launched the basic 700 series in 1982 as a mid-sized luxury four door saloon, designed by their head designer Jan Wilsgaard. The 760 followed two years later and featured several upmarket features over its forebears. Various updates followed and drivers reported that it was one of the best handling and fastest accelerating cars they had driven, reaching 0-60 mph in under eight seconds. Production ended in 1992 in favour of the 900 series.Our model dates from 1986-7, registered D263 OVM and is decorated in a warm metallic gold colour scheme with black interior. Exterior trim is silver with black bumpers. The 760 GLE marque is printed in silver. In real life, the 760 was a great favourite with European police forces, particularly in Scandinavia.
