They say that history has a habit of repeating itself and in terms of the automotive industry this is very true. The Mini made a return along with a modern GT40 to name just a few updated haunts from the past. Volvo now say it is their turn as they release sketches of what a new P1800 would look like.
To celebrate 50 years since the P1800, Volvo design chief Christopher Benjamin has modernized the illustrious coupe. Sporting a curvaceously swollen body the dashing new car is quite something to look at. Though strictly a drawing for now, the P1800 today would find itself up against rivals such as the BMW 3 series and Audi A5. An interesting prospect but until Volvo decide that is a good idea we shall just have to admire the art.
