    As witnessed in today's POTD. It's a dude who works for Koenigsegg, known for having made a 1,000hp Volvo Amazon before, who's new project is a 600hp P1800 with the V8 from today's XC90/S80, with the odd turbo bolted on. Lots of renders here, if you click where it says "Bildextra". Can't grab the links to those pics individually, so here are the ones that aren't the POTD and are not flash on the site.

  3. Nice!
    +100
     
  4. Very hot

    It's got some kind of DB5 flavour going on too.
     
  5. + ferrari 275 gts
     
  6. the wheels are all wrong, but the rest is cool
     
  7. The front somehow screams Ferrari to me. Not 275 though.


    PS 1000hp out of a Volvo engine, woweee <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/confused.gif"></A>
     
  8. The wheels are too big, but otherwise hot.

    the crazy swedes regularly get 800+hp out of the 8v "redblock"

    still sounds like a tractor <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>

     
  11. The P1800 is a pretty looking car, although I always think it looks a little fat on the sides at the back of the doors.

    That's a proper drag car though, while that Amazon doesn't seem like one....
     
  13. so? I was just giving an example of another 1000hp volvo engine.

    it could be attached to a motorised pencil sharpener for all I care - it'll still be a 1000hp redblock.

  15. Old, but worth repost every time the car is mentioned.
     
  16. is this actually getting built?
    looks very neat imo!

    PS: do a look for the P1800 protoypes
    they had lower ground clearance and central double exhausts.
    looked amazing! mini 250 GT
     
  17. Yes, it is probably going to be built, but it's a one-off project car.
     
  18. Isn't the P1800 the car that clocked 2 million+ miles?

    Anyway, amazing renderings. Very vintage Ferrari/Aston. I'd buy that.
     
  19. Yes, there is one crazy dude in America who's clocked well over a million miles in a P1800.
     
  20.  
  21. Whoever buys Volvo should make this a production car. So #$%#ing sexy.
