Cyan’s Latest Volvo P1800 Lands In GT Guise Painted Metallic Green – CarScoops

This example has a greater focus on comfort but is still powered by a race-derived 2.0-liter four-cylinder
Cyan Racing has just unveiled the latest Volvo P1800 Cyan, its wild $700,000 recreation of the classic Swedish sports car and this one is a little bit special. This P1800 is finished in a beautiful shade of metallic green and is a new GT version of the car that’s slightly more comfortable and road-focused than the original unveiled a few years ago.
The company says that one of the biggest changes comes with the suspension. While the GT model still has fully-adjustable suspension, it has been tuned for “winding country roads” and long distance driving. In addition, Cyan Racing has fettled with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine to improve driveability.
The green car is one of the first GT versions of the P1800 and is heading to a client in the U.S. Contrasting the metallic green paint is a chrome front grille and chrome accents on the front bumper and around the headlights. The chrome continues onto the wing mirrors, door handles, window surrounds, and the rear fascia. Beautifully complimenting the green paint are a set of stunning gold-painted wheels sitting over brake calipers with a bronze finish.

Found inside the cabin is sand-colored leather and fabrics, a three-spoke Momo Prototipo steering wheel, and a titanium roll cage wrapped in plush leather.
“The new version highlights the versatility and almost endless tailoring options of the Volvo P1800 Cyan, adding another dimension to our interpretation of the original model,” Cyan chief executive Christian Dahl said. “The joint journey of tailoring a car from start to finish with a client is a thoroughly rewarding process for the entire team, just as it is to see two further cars being shipped to the US.”
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder of the P1800 Cyan is based on the unit found in the Volvo S60 TC1 race car and in flagship guise, pumps out 413 hp and 335 lb-ft (455 Nm). Cyan allows buyers to choose how much power they want, starting from 350 hp. All examples are rear-wheel drive and use a dog-leg five-speed manual transmission.
