Extreme modifications undertaken by Koenigsegg employee have transformed this classic Volvo into a Ferrari-killing beast.
This ultra-cool Volvo that first came on the scene back at the SEMA show in 2006 has been put up for sale. Readers will remember seeing the heavily modified 1969 Volvo Amazon Kombi destroy a few Ferraris back in November, which at the time caused a few raised eyebrows. But now we have a full rundown of the modifications and things make a lot more sense.
Created by Swedish petrol head and Koenigsegg employee Mattias Vocks, the Amazon Kombi was transformed into what he calls 'Sweden's coolest Volvo' by fitting a heavily modified Volvo-sourced 2.8-liter turbocharged inline-six that now produces 788hp and 723lb-ft of torque when running on E85. The five-door estate was then turned into a three-door model before adding a new Getrag 6-speed transmission, a new rear differential, Koenigsegg CC85 brakes, and McPherson coilover adjustable front & rear suspension. Inside there are a pair of Sparco Pro 2000 seats upholstered in leather and alcantara with a Volvo P1800 style dash.
For reasons unknown, the one-off Volvo monster is up for sale at the Mobile.de website priced at 89,300 Euros. If you feel the car matches your needs then get in touch with the owner as the price is negotiable.
