Everyone in Malmö's going to want to test-drive this baby. 

A Sweden-based art director, going by the name Castor, has seriously raised the bar for selling used cars.

In this dramatic yet totally honest commercial titled “Buy My Volvo,” Castor highlights countless selling points of his 1993 Volvo stationwagon. A curly exhaust, four door handles, and a “haunted” backseat, anyone?

The original Swedish version of the video was posted to classified listing site Blocket last week. The car's going for 7500 Swedish Kronor — about $1100 — or best offer and can be test-driven in the city of Malmö.
