We've seen some pretty impressive papercraft creations as of late, including a massive Bugatti Veyron and a 1969 Ford Mustang, but this Volvo 240 Wagon takes the cake. The pieces come in a sizable tome, complete with instructions, and buyers can choose from a ludicrous number of options. Your papercraft Volvo 240 can be made with either a right-hand or left-hand-drive steering wheel, black or silver trim, automatic or manual transmission and electric or crank windows as well as a slew of wheel options. We can't exactly say we have the patience to sit down, cut out and assemble a paper box of our own, but we're in awe of the finished product.

If you have a soft spot for bricks and some time to kill, you can buy the kit from eBay for the low price of $12.90, plus $6.00 for shipping. Sounds like a steal to us. Head over to VolvoHobby.com to check it out for yourself, and be sure to take a peek at the video below.

      First: that is absolutely fantastic. It looks spot-on. Second: I don't think I could actually do this myself, I would go insane trying to build the small details without ruining everything.

      If there's anything on God's Green Earth that can be faithfully replicated as a folded paper box, it's a Volvo 245.

      Unless you have the dexterity of a neurosurgeon, your results will probably not be identical to that of those in the above pictures... The number of paper cuts you would get alone...

        I also have to say that on a scale of 1-10 for level of difficulty, this looks like it ranks about 47... I will readily admit, as some of the other posters on here have, that I do not possess the ability to undertake such a project...

      It looks great! Except it's missing the signature headrests... Which I love!

      I was really hoping this was full-size.

      I am not ashamed to admit I am too stupid to build something like this. I'll stick to LEGOs.

      Ahhh the 240... From back when Volvo built cars that were worth buying...

      Even if that model were life sized, a lot of the parts would still be far too small and intricate for me to cut, fold and stick in exactly the right way. I'd end up spending an hour trying to jimmy on the "electric window button" only to notice I ended up caving in the roof or crushing 3 seats. Whoever has the dexterity and patience to actually put this together right I applaud, and obviously the papercraft genius who designed the kit. I mean, the intricacy of the exterior shell alone is great, including an interior itself is remarkable itself. But to be so precise you have options on whether the doors have mini window cranks or microscopic buttons, auto or manual style gear selector, freaking insane. The only thing truly unrealistic about this Volvo is likely its performance in a crash test. Unless of course there is a strengthened paper chassis and tissue paper airbags...

      I wish they had a kit for a 240 sedan :(
