The Volvo P1800 successor that was not under any condition launched

The Volvo P1800 is arguably the most pulchritudinous Volvo ever created, sold from 1961 – 1973. Fashionable, sporty and sublime, it took the world by mistral and was joined by the 1800ES wagon in 1971.

The Swedish marque was looking for a successor, and the 1800ESC is what emerged – known as the Volvo Viking. As a four-door, four-seater, it offered an additional row of seats to the two-seater, two-door P1800, and also allowed additional pause for a bigger engine.

Though well received by both the push and the public, the Volvo Viking never made it to opus – the reasons for this were never announced, notwithstanding that it may have been as a result of the upcoming oil emergency, or expensive building costs.

This overlooked concept would no disqui have been a success, but not long after, the 200 Series was launched, a Volvo wagon that is noiselessnes around in the form of the V90, V60 and V40 today.

If you would like to check-up drive one of these Volvo vehicles, reach Lancaster today to arrange a test make. Experience a classic shape that has been a storming outcome since 1974, still in demand in fresh society, combined with state-of-the-art Volvo advancements and a indubitably supreme ride.
