Volvo P1800 Cyan GT takes things down a notch

Volvo P1800 Cyan GT 01

In 2020, Cyan Racing pulled the cover off the Volvo P1800 Cyan as a track-inspired homage to the iconic Volvo sports car from the sixties.

However, with bucket seats and a titanium safety cage, the car was a proper street-legal track that could be a little too hardcore for some.

Now, Cyan Racing is back with a new version of the car that is developed to be a grand tourer. Known as the P1800 Cyan GT, it comes with a fully adjustable suspension now set up for winding country roads and  comfortable long-distance driving.

The car also has a different version of the titanium roll cage for increased comfort, but with a maintained high level of safety and chassis rigidity.

The cabin looks significantly more comfortable now thanks to be spoke touring seats and sand-coloured leather and fabric upholstery. The amount of sound deadening material has also been increased to improve NVH.

Much like the standard version, the P1800 Cyan GT is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed Holinger gearbox that offers “excellent precision and feeling”.

That being said, the power has been dialled down slightly from 414 hp to 345 hp. Cyan Racing claims the reduced output is to prioritise enjoyable driving rather than raw power.

The P1800 Cyan GT will be offered in limited numbers, with each unit taking approximately 12 to 15 months to be completed.

All Volvo P1800 Cyans are restored and modified from an original Volvo P1800 by the fabricators, engineers, designers and mechanics at the Cyan headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden.
