VOLVO 1800

Two-door coupe that looked impossibly suave and fast, but in reality its 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine wasn’t over-endowed with power. As a result, this is a car for cruising, rather than enjoying high-speed blasts. The 2.0-litre that came later provided a greater turn of speed, but the rarest 1800 of all is the little-known 1800 ES sporting estate, introduced in 1969 to replace the coupe, and built in tiny numbers.

Roger Moore’s own car in the early 1960s was an 1800. it became a star of cult TV show The Saint by accident; first choice was an E-Type, but Jaguar couldn’t help.
