The text of this ad states:


Say all you want about traffic laws, speed limits and automotive safety features, when you slide behind the wheel of a car you're responsible for your own destiny.

The interior of this Volvo 760 GLE is designed with that responsibility in mind.

Every aspect of the car's interior - from the shape of the knobs and placement of the controls to the adjustable lumbar support in the orthopedically-contoured bucket seats - is designed to make the driver and the machine one.

Something that's apparent when you test drive a 700 Series Volvo.

And discover how much performance a car can get out of you.


A car you can believe in.

1984 Volvo 760 GLE Ad: One of the world's greats cars.

Personally, I was never much of a fan of the Volvo 700 series.  I always thought that these cars looked a little too much like everything else on the road at the time  They lacked the distinct styling of the Volvo 200 series.  Upon reflection it occurs to me that this may have been the point of the 700 series.

Regardless of price.

There are certainly luxury sedans you could pay a lot more for than the Volvo 760 GLE. But very few of them would give you so much in return.

The performance is startling. More than one test driver has been pinned back in his orthopedically designed driver's seat. Road and Track has called the turbo diesel "the fastest diesel we've ever tested." Rather impressive when you consider it's our gas engines that are built for speed.

A revolutionary suspension system not only smooths the road, it calms the driver. As another reviewer put it: "Feeling comfortable and relaxed behind the wheel at 100 m.p.h. was truly an uncommon experience*...this is a first class performance machine."

Even standing still, the 760 GLE will move you. It offers a host of amenities ranging from a stereo system so sophisticated it comes with its own graphic equalizer, to a climate control system that can change the interior air four times a minute.

So take a look at the new 760 GLE from Volvo. And discover one of the great investment vehicles of all time.

*Though the 760 GLE is capable of this, it should never be attempted by anyone other than a professional driver under controlled test track conditions.
