The classic Volvo P1800ES
The Volvo 1800ES is a sports car from Volvo Cars. It is the successor to the P1800E.
The last model came in 1972, the 1800ES, a coupe station wagon with an all-glass tailgate, sometimes described as a shooting-brake. The final design was chosen after two prototypes were built by Sergio Coggiola and Pietro Frua.
Frua's odd-looking prototype, Raketen, currently resides in the Volvo Museum. Both Italian prototypes were considered too futuristic, and Jan Wilsgaard's (in-house designer) proposal was accepted instead. The ES engine was downgraded to 125 hp by reducing the compression ratio with a thicker head gasket. Although maximum power dropped, on-the-road performance was actually improved.
As an alternative to the usual four-speed plus overdrive manual transmission, a Borg-Warner three-speed automatic transmission became available for the 1800ES. Due to the tightening of US safety and emissions standards in 1974, Volvo is unable to redesign the 1800 ES in small volumes. Only 8,077 1800 ES cars were built in the two production years.
