Volvo's racing division, Cyan modernized one of the sexiest cars of all time, the P1800!
They strengthen the chassis and put a 420 horsepower, 2 liter inline 4 engine in the front. It's obviously rear-wheel drive.

I've been behind the wheel of a p1600 before. Volvo was not what I thought of when I saw the sexy sculpted body.

Goddamn that’s sexy looking. That’ll go in my restomod garage, along with a Guntherwerks 400R, a Singer DLS, a ECD E-Lander Defender, and a Legacy Overland G-Wagen.

Looks fantastic with those big wheels. I wonder if they modded the wheel arches to make them fit.

It also looks wider, seems they've used overfenders according to this article:

I'm almost sure the 990 kg will be dry weight, but still everything sounds very promising.
