Watch the Volvo P1800 Cyan drift on ice

Cyan Racing

The resto-mod Volvo P1800 Cyan is RWD and has no ESP…sounds perfect for drifting in the snow.

As if the Volvo P1800 Cyan wasn’t already incredibly cool, Cyan Racing chief engineer Mattias Evensson and his crew headed to northern Sweden for some sideways fun on the frozen lakes and snow covered roads of Åre. Life’s tough.

“The basic concept of the car seems to work really well, it does not matter that much if you are on a bone-dry racing circuit, a wet and twisty country road or on the crisp ice here in northern Sweden. You still feel confident and in control,” said Mattias Evensson Volvo P1800 Cyan Project Manager and Head of Engineering at Cyan Racing.

“I would say this concept has somewhat been lost along the way for the performance cars of today. For us, this is returning back to basics.”
