Cyan Racing puts a price on its Volvo P1800 restomod for North America
Back in 2020, Cyan Racing caused big ripples in the car enthusiast community when it unveiled a gorgeous, tastefully restored and tuned Volvo P1800. The car was as much of a shocker as its price was, and it is now coming to the United States at last.
Those who would like to steal a glimpse of this piece of automobile restoration art should book a ticket to The Quail meetup scheduled for August 9, 2022. Buying it will lighten your bank account by $700,000 USD – you could obtain a couple of McLaren 720S for that kind of money and still have enough remaining to afford a more mundane vehicle.
Regardless, the P1800 Cyan is being sold in ‘better-than-new’ condition and comes powered by an adapted racing powertrain based on the 2.0-liter Volvo S60 TC1 four-banger. The mill revs up to 7,700 RPM and hits the wheels with 420 PS (413 hp / 309 kW) and 455 Nm (336 lb-ft) of torque. Driver gets to row their own gears thanks to a five-speed dogbox transmission.
Elsewhere, the restomod boasts frame reinforcements, all-new carbon-fiber bodywork, a widened track and a new suspension system based on coilovers, Cyan shock valves and other upgrades. It rides on 18-inch centerlock wheels and has four-piston brake calipers all around.
The interior emanates the same retro aura as the exterior does, but foregoes period-correctness with modern touches such as the digital dash screen.
