The Volvo P1800 had its world premiere in 1960 at the Geneva Motor Show as a sports coupe, which became world famous by the TV series “The Saint” with Roger Moore. The actor loved the car and drove one privately for many years. After a full ten years in production, Volvo added a two-door “shooting brake” variant to the lineup, the Volvo P1800 ES (“estate sportswagon”). It featured long rear side windows and a frameless, all-glass tailgate, which is why it became known by its nickname, “Snow White’s Coffin”.
The car became a coveted exotic – particularly in the USA. The high price may have played a major role. In Germany, the same money would buy a prestigious Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5, a respectable Audi 100 Coupé S would be a whopping 10,000 DM cheaper!
For 1974, the US authorities introduced new safety regulations which would have required an extensive and costly redesign, which Volvo didn’t grant the P 1800. Production ended in 1973 with only 8,077 copies of this extravagant car made.
Design made in Sweden – here it has found its perfect form and makes the heart of every design lover beat faster!
