Made between 1961 and 1973, the P1800 was Volvo’s lightweight sportscar of the 60’s. The original dual carburettor, inline 4 cylinder engine put out a respectable 115bhp.

Cyan have reimagined the classic P1800. The engine has been replaced with a Volvo 2.0L turbo 4 cylinder, putting out 414bhp.

Five speed manual Holinger gearbox, LSD, race suspension and upgraded brakes have all made this a real racecar for the road.

The P1800 is light… very light. Using carbon fibre to save weight, this car tips the scales at just 990kg.

All cars have already been spoken for and have set there new owners back £380,000.

Over 400bhp in a car weighing less than 1000kg sounds like a recipe for a lot of fun! What are your thoughts on Cyan’s resto-mod?
