Koenigsegg engineer builds up modern-day Volvo P1800

Mattias Vöcks the Swedish-born designer who normally spends his days hand-assembling supercars for Koenigsegg, has created a new beastly design based on the classic Volvo P1800... More after the jump...




With help from Bo Zolland from Swedish design firm Vizualtech, Vöcks has added a few modifications to bring the shapely Swedish beauty to modern standards. Aerodynamics are improved by a rear diffuser, flat underbody tray and a front fascia that's been smoothed out and lengthened by 70mm. Powering the beast is a 4.4-liter V8 borrowed from a Volvo XC90 SUV that's been force-fed by a turbocharger and pushes its 600 horses through a six-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels...
