Volvo P1800 Cyan 2021


Cyan Racing, the supreme triple World Touring Car Champions, has uncovered the Volvo P1800 Cyan, an understanding of the famous Volvo sports vehicle from the sixties. The vehicle is designed by the group behind the main world title-dominating Volvo race vehicle and the Volvo C30 Polestar Concept Prototype. 
"Our organization was established in 1996 to race Volvo vehicles in Sweden and the Volvo P1800 Cyan is shutting the hover for us," said Christian Dahl, CEO and originator of Cyan Racing. "We asserted our first world title with Volvo in 2017 and have from that point forward won two further world titles with two different makers. The main world title was an achievement for us, and we felt it was a decent an ideal opportunity to reconnect with the past and to those before us dashing Volvos. The principal Volvo P1800 Cyan conveys our blue and yellow dashing hues to stamp our legacy." 
What could have been 
The first Volvo P1800 was uncovered in 1960, a year prior to the Jaguar E-Type, two years before the Ferrari 250 GTO and three years before the Porsche 911. 
"The Jaguar, the Ferrari and the Porsche are largely vehicles with a continuation," said Christian Dahl. "That left us with motivation to make what could have been in the event that we as a race group had been there during the sixties, dashing the P1800, and got the opportunity to plan a street rendition of our race vehicle. We have done that before with three of our race vehicles, the Volvo C30, the Volvo S60, when we were known as Polestar, and a year ago the Lynk and Co 03 Cyan. The Volvo P1800 Cyan is our translation of what could have been."Looking back amidst a change in outlook 
In the period of self-ruling driving, zap and network, Cyan Racing concluded the time had come to catch what has been and to make it ageless. 




"Clearly we could have assembled an electric Volvo P1800 loaded up with all the most recent innovation, solace and extravagance. However, that was not what we needed," said Christian Dahl. "In the midst of this change in perspective we chose to hinder time and freeze a piece of it time permitting case. To take the best from the brilliant sixties and join it with our capacities of today, keeping an unadulterated yet refined driving experience." 
Custom-made to convey certifiable driving delight 
While making the Volvo P1800 Cyan, the group behind it chose to treat the plan and designing of the sixties with care, pushing it ahead in a fragile way. 
"We chose to apply our ability in motor, air and suspension plan for a vehicle that conveys on the Cyan designing way of thinking as far as consistency and instinctive driver control, yet keeping the light-weight, simple driving experience of the sixties," said Mattias Evensson, Project Manager and Head of Engineering at Cyan Racing. 
There are no driver helps to mutilate the driving experience, which means no soundness control, ABS or brake sponsor. 
"The Volvo P1800 Cyan is tied in with gathering up anything upsetting the immediate association between driver, tires and the street. Our goal has been to keep that undisturbed sensation while refining it with the best innovation of today," said Mattias Evensson. 
Light-weight carbon fiber and high-quality steel body 
The Volvo P1800 body has been changed to oblige a more extensive track, bigger haggles nursery, among a considerable rundown of updates. 
"To assemble a translation of a notable plan is a test. I think we prevailing with regards to combining new innovation without losing the character of the first Volvo P1800," said Ola Granlund, Head of Design at Cyan Racing. 
The Volvo P1800 Cyan began life as a 1964 Volvo P1800 that has been refined and fortified using high-quality steel and carbon fiber. 
"The reason for an exact and natural driving experience is a strong body structure. Vehicles from the sixties are a long way from ideal with regards to this because of feeble focuses and steel quality that consider flex," said Mattias Evensson. "We have upgraded the structure of the first shape and fortified frail focuses in the case through triangulation, utilizing high-quality steel and incorporated the carbon fiber body with the frame structure. The carbon fiber isn't only a fine shell of discrete boards, yet rather auxiliary segments got together with high-quality cement to the steel. All pieces of the carbon fiber are adding to the basic inflexibility." 
This cycle is a key part to empower low weight and high responsiveness, with the vehicle weighing only 990 kilos. 
Motor and transmission plan 
The two-liter turbocharged four-chamber motor depends on a similar motor as utilized on the planet title-winning Volvo S60 TC1 race vehicle, delivering 420 drive and 455Nm of force, with a redline at 7700 rpm. 
Despite the fact that the motor is turbocharged, it is created to convey a direct force and force bend with the qualities of an ordinarily suctioned motor. The motor character is intended to convey a driving encounter as in the sixties yet with expanded execution and exactness. 
"While assessing motors for the Volvo P1800 Cyan, we thought about a wide scope of Volvo motors, including the first B18, the 'Red Block' B230, the 5-chamber 'White Block', the short inline 6-chamber and the 4-chamber VEA motor that power Volvos of today," said Mattias Evensson. "The productive and lightweight VEA (Volvo Engine Architecture) gave us the best base, additionally permitting us to move our experience from the various adaptations of the VEA that we have intended for our race and execution vehicles of the past decade."The motor made its introduction in the 2011 Volvo C30 world visiting race vehicle and was a key part in guaranteeing the 2017 world title. 
"It is a motor that gives us a solid mechanical base and an exceptionally effective burning framework. We have adjusted it to suit the Volvo P1800 Cyan with the force yield expanding through the whole powerband," said Mattias Evensson. "The force tops late. It is intended for high fires up a ton, with the force instinctively direct to the pedal. We have gained from dashing where the drivers need ideal control of the force, expanding accuracy and driving joy simultaneously." 
A five-speed bespoke Holinger gearbox has been chosen to convey the mechanical sentiment of the first Volvo P1800, however with more noteworthy rigging change exactness and capacity of taking care of the expanded force. 
The first Volvo P1800 live back hub is supplanted with a Cyan-planned autonomous back suspension. 
A key part to the connecting with back wheel drive experience is the force biasing restricted slip differential. The differential is mounted in a Holinger lodging with one of a kind apparatuses so as to join competent execution on a circuit with cultivated conduct for street use. 
An unadulterated driver focussed case 
The completely flexible front and back suspension highlights bespoke lightweight parts, including aluminum uprights, twofold wishbones and two-way customizable dampers with Cyan power through pressure."We are really satisfied with the level of grip and precision that we have achieved from the chassis in combination with a responsive steering," said Thed Bj├Ârk, development driver and 2017 touring car world champion for Cyan Racing. "The car goes where you point it. You can be brutal going into a corner and still find your apex and exit within millimetres. The settings of the car are not aimed at fast lap times but rather to deliver an enjoyable and exciting driving experience. I feel my smile widening each time that I control the drift angle of the car through a long turn."
The carbon fibre-reinforced chassis is connected to the road with 18" forged rims with Pirelli P Zero 235/40 tyres at the front and 265/35 at the rear.
The car is controlled by 4-piston calipers with 362x32mm steel discs with genuine feeling as no brake booster or ABS is there to interfere.




World Title engineering team
Cyan Racing's engineering team originates from more than two decades of developing racing cars and over a decade of developing performance road cars.
The engineering team involved competences from Cyan's design, aero, engine, chassis and electronics departments.
"The Volvo P1800 Cyan is the result of an advanced engineering process, involving many of the same talents who designed, built and developed our world title winning Volvo S60 TC1 Cyan," said Christian Dahl.
The Volvo C30 Polestar Performance Prototype, the first road car of Cyan Racing, was used for benchmarking throughout the development process.
"A vital part of the project was to reconnect with our first road car," said Mattias Evensson. "We wanted to carry over some of the driving feeling and performance availability from that car and it has been thoroughly useful throughout the development process."
