Volvo P1800 Cyan after originally debuting in Europe in 2020, it will debut in the States at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering, on August 9 during Monterey Car Week. Ordering will start soon for the restomod and prices will start at $700,000. Originally debuted in 1960 and lasted into the early ’70s. Cyan Racing built this restomod by using technology from today.
The P1800 is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder making 420 hp and 336 Nm of torque with a redline of 7,700 RPM. The car uses a five-speed Holinger manual transmission with a dog-leg first gear position. Also with Holinger supplied limited-slip rear differential. With every part being overhauled by Cyan, only the steel in the original chassis, hood release mechanism, handbrake, and windshield wipers remain still.

The structure uses high-strength steel for the underpinnings, and carbon-fiber body panels join the structure with adhesive. This makes the restomod as light as 990 Kgs. The body also features enlarged wheel wells and a wider track to accommodate the 18-inch wheels. The suspension now features an adjustable double-wishbone set up at both ends.
Cyan Racing wants P1800’s owners to have a direct connection to the road. This happens with no stability control, anti-lock brakes, or even a brake booster.
