The Volvo 780 Coupe Bertone new color edition to satisfy you
You know that DNA Collectibles is very close from its fan community. So when the Volvo Model Cars Facebook group (counting more than 12’000 members) nicely asks you to re-edit a version of the Volvo 780 Coupe Bertone in 407 Blue Pearl Metallic body color and Blue & Black interior… You just say yes and you start working on it !
Let’s dive into the exterior of this 1:18 scale model replica to see what treasures we will find.
The perforated front grill, which nicely integrates the typical diagonal bar and the Volvo logo, allows you to see the radiator and the fan behind. Below the front bumper, you can also notice that we replicated the central air intake and the fog lights.
Speaking of lights, DNA Collectibles attaches a lot of attention to the headlights realism. You can clearly see the small wipers on it, the engraved pattern, the different compartments and the bulbs inside.
Several fine photo-etched chrome bits are manually applied at the top of the front and rear bumpers, surrounding the windows, around the front grill, along the wings black protections, and on the door handles.
Of course, we didn’t miss the metallic badges around the car with the Bertone logo and inscription on both C-pillars, in addition to the Volvo and 780 wording applied on the trunk.
The aluminum effect spoke rims were really complex to develop to reach this splendid final rendering.
The large windshield, side windows and glass roof allows you to scrutinize all the interior high quality tiny details. What a transition to talk about the cabin features !
The cockpit details are just amazing. Instead of just moulding everything in one block, DNA Collectibles decided to make several separate parts such as the steering wheel, the turn signals, the gear lever and the hand brake. Please focus on the dashboard counters realism, the tiny buttons on the radio and central consol… Don’t you feel like being in the actual car?
Wooden effect trims on the door panels and on the thin line along the front cockpit brings an executive and luxury touch to this beautiful scale model car.
The photo-etched buckles applied on the real fabric seat belts is a “standard” DNA Collectibles signature.
