If there is one thing that never fails to tickle the fancy of car aficionados of all ages, it would definitely be vintage automobiles. With the raw power of old, assisted by nothing but the hopefully reliable performance of its physical components and craftsmanship of its manufacturers, a vintage car will always have the classic allure to it despite the emergence of more advanced models nowadays.
And if you have been doing your research, one of the most sought-after classic vehicles which continues to generate buzz within the automobile industry is none other than the P1800, a classic coupe manufactured by Swedish car giant Volvo way back in the 1960s.
In fact, the Volvo P1800 is making a roaring comeback in the 21st century with a new and improved restored model which retains all the neat features which made it popular back then and combining it with cutting-edge technology of modern times – with the result being a high-performing and retro-aesthetic powerhouse called the Volvo P1800 Cyan, which will surely catch the attention of car lovers all over.
Led by Cyan Racing, formerly known as Polestar Performance, the Volvo P1800 Cyan is a heartwarming tribute by the organization to its strong partnership with Volvo and to commemorate their first ever World Touring Car Championship in a Volvo automobile.
The Perfect Restomod
The Volvo P1800 Cyan is the perfect restomod. Based on the original foundations of a standard P1800 model, the modern take on the classic automobile boasts remarkable features such as 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which can yield up to 420 horsepower at 7,000 RPM and 355 lb. ft. of torque at 6,000 RPM.
Additionally, the Volvo P1800 Cyan also makes use of a five-speed manual transmission system paired with wider tracks, air intakes, a splitter, and a two-piece bumper, enhanced suspension modifications, and bigger wheels – making for a restomod which beautifully clashes old and new.
