The final product is a sort of mashup between a Volga Coupe and a Volvo P1800. Both designs stunning in their own right, made even more so by the master craftsmen at Bilenkin.
Floral patterns and leather cover the seats, front and back, while the dash catches the eye with an aquamarine finish, some wonderfully retro gauges, and even a steering wheel pulled right from the 60s. Though, considering it is a ‘modern’ vehicle, a touchscreen infotainment system was fitted.
But with all the positives—the stunning design, the ample performance—there is a slight downside. In fear of sugar-coating it: you’ll be dishing out €130,000 ($137,800) for this wonderful machine. So it is no bargain, but for about the same price you’d be able to pick up a Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer, the Bilenkin Vintage sports car is a very enticing alternative.
