Not sure how to put a mountainbike in the trunk, but with the wheels of the bike removed it must be possible. It's a US 1990 Volvo 780 Bertone coupe (hence trunk), with a 2.3 turbo pushing out 190 BHP. Gearbox is automatic. The car has got all the luxury you can dream of, including power adjustable (heated) seats, aircon, fab ICE with graphic equalizer (remember those?), electric everything and leather and wood interior. It drives great, I took her out for a spin today and the power is amazing. This is as much fun as cycling.

Great car! seeing this reminds me of a great story about Paul Newman, he had the engineers at Newman-Haas shoehorn a 5.0 V8 from a Buick Grand National into a 760 wagon to use as his personal runabout :shock:
