The Volvo P 1800 is undoubtedly the most elegantly, exquisitely and dynamically designed Volvo of the twentieth century. The Volvo P 1800 was designed by Per Petterson who was employed at 'carrosseria Frua' those days.
The Volvo P 1800 came onto the market in 1961 as a coupe and was initially built at Jensen’s in England. The P1800 became world-famous for the series of "The Saint" in the 1960s, with Roger Moore as Simon Templar in the leading role.
After building 6000 cars in 1963, production of the P 1800 was relocated to Sweden, and the car was then named the P1800 "S" (Sverige).
In September 1969, the P1800 E came onto the market with a Bosch fuel injection system, a modified dashboard and had disc brakes all around. The P1800 ES estate/coupe came onto the market in 1971.
