Volvo P1800 Gasser 2023 HW Dream Garage


The Volvo P1800 is a four-seat touring sports car manfactured by Volvo from 1961 to 1973 in coupe or shooting brake configuration, with 47,484 produced of all variants. Designed by Pelle Peterson under Pietro Frua, the car's mechanicals were derived from the Amazon and gained fame when actor Roger Moore used the car in the television show The Saint. A P1800 is also known for being the highest mileage private vehicle driven by the original owner in non-commercial service, having been certified in 1998 by the Guinness Book of World Records; owned by Irv Gordon, the car had exceeded over 3.25 million miles (5.23 million kilometers) by the time Gordon died in 2018.

This casting is based on a 1969 Volvo P1800 Gasser built by Lee Johnstone, based in the United Kingdom. The car is named Ain't No Saint and competes in drag racing at Santa Pod Raceway in Bedfordshire. The car was the winner of the 2021 Hot Wheels Legends Tour, it being the first winner of the show from outside the United States.
