Volvo P1800 Cyan Racing review | Amazing restomod tested | Autocar

Spoiler alert: the Volvo P1800 Cyan Racing is a wonderful thing. Cyan Racing, the Swedish racing team that is Volvo's official race partner, has taken an old Volvo P1800 coupe and turned it into something brilliant.

There's not much original P1800 left. Cyan takes a few bits of the structure and rebuilds an entire car around it, including a 2.0-lire 414bhp turbocharged engine, double-wishbone suspension all around and plenty of carbon fibre.

The result is a car that costs nearly £400,000 and weighs just 990kg. Cyan doesn't quote 0-60mph numbers of a top speed, but given the P1800 Cyan has no driver aids and a manual gearbox, we reckon it'll hit 60mph in under 5.0seconds and go on to 170mph.

Watch on to see what Matt Prior thinks of this fabulously-constructed restomod.
