Hotrod with Volvo heart
Leif Tufvesson is one of Sweden’s most skilled specialist car constructors, with many of his cars having received serious international acclaim. The hottest of them all right now is the new Caresto V8 Speedster, a mid-engined car with an ethanol powered Volvo V8 unit. With the advent of the V8 Speedster, the term Sport Rod has been born. The car will be given its premiere public outing at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

I worked at Metalcrafters in Fountain Valley for some time back in 97 and the range of build cost would be in the 250 - 400k most likely if you account for his labor.

Its only worth what someone put down cash for. I'd say that it would bring 70-90k at an auction in todays market.

Just my 2 cents

A true work of art in my opinion! If Plymouth can make the Prowler can't Volvo make this?

I agree.

If you like the Prowler, have you seen the little known Howler prototype V8 roadster P/up Here's a link to some pix/ article. PickupTruck.Com - Howler Concept: Have Bed Will Travel

Its a shame they did not build this.
