This Volvo P1800 Cyan may be the best restomod ever – Roadshow

The past and the present collide within this gorgeous restomod creation, undertaken by Cyan

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

The P1800 Cyan is the final product after the team channeled its motorsport learnings to imagine a race car for the road with the original car’s gorgeous design.

The idea was simple: Cyan wondered what the P1800 could have been if it had a race team backing the car all the way back in the 1960s, much like the iconic Ferrari and Jaguar vehicles of the time.

Naturally, it’ll be an "if you have to ask" sort of ordeal when it comes to prices, but those with the means can be in touch with the racing outfit to spec their very own — and incredibly cool — P1800 Cyan.

Cyan Racing, formerly Volvo’s factory racing team, undertook this challenge and created something sublime.

The team looked at plenty of engine options, including the P1800’s original engine, a five-cylinder and an inline-six, but ultimately, the turbo-four was the best fit.

Even better, there’s a bespoke five-speed manual transmission onboard, and Cyan Racing said the powertrain is meant to rev.
