Cyan Racing showed Volvo P1800 Cyan restomodNovember 5, 2020
Volvo’s Cyan Racing division has unveiled the Volvo P1800 Cyan restomod.
This was reported by the press service of the manufacturer. It took many thousands of hours of painstaking work to create the car, but the result exceeded all expectations.
Earlier we already wrote that the camouflaged prototype was photographed on the road in Sweden. It was assumed that the car will receive an electric drive. But, fortunately, everything turned out to be quite different.
The Volvo P1800 Cyan is painted in the Cyan Racing signature color. The classic P1800 coupe from the 1960s was taken as a basis, but all body panels and chassis elements were redesigned to match the dimensions and proportions of the original.
The interior, also in retro style, features leather trim, roll cage, Momo steering wheel and racing buckets.
A 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine was installed under the hood of the car. A similar engine was used on the Volvo S60 TC1 racing car. It develops a power of 420 hp and a torque of 455 Nm. It is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission that sends all the power of the motor to the rear drive wheels.
The chassis for the car has been redesigned using modern components. Also, the car received modern steering, double wishbone front suspension, adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers and independent rear suspension.
Recall that the original Volvo P1800 coupe was presented in 1961. The stylish sports car has gained worldwide fame thanks to the British television series “Saint” with Roger Moore in the title role.
