Hot Wheels will release a scale model of the Volvo P1800 hardcore coupe.

Hot Wheels has been looking for a prototype for a special 1 / 64th scale model over the past few months. After a long search, the company chose a dragster based on the Volvo P1800 coupe, produced from 1961 to 1972.

Initially, the company was looking for a car in the United States, but then Hot Wheels representatives decided to pay attention to the UK, where a very unusual P1800 was found. Coupe owner Lee Johnstone turned him into a gasser.

Lee Johnstone regularly participates in drag competitions, to which he takes three daughters with him. The driver named his team Johnstone & Daughters Racing.

Under the hood of the Volvo P1800 dredger is a Chevrolet V8 engine. The power unit is 600 hp. and a quarter-mile distance is covered in 10.01 seconds with an output speed of 214 km / h.
