1/18th Scale Car of the Year: DNA Collectibles Volvo P1800

Starting just last year, DNA collectibles has distinguished itself with some great models we usually don’t see in scale, like the Subaru Baja, Saab 9-3 Viggen, and Peel P50, to name a view. In the trend of showcasing cool, off-the-beaten path cars, we arrive at this Volvo P1800.

After the success of the Amazon, a safe, solid sedan for everyone, Volvo wanted to distinguish itself. Taking it’s basic mechanicals, harnessing some Italian design excellence courtesy of Carrozzeria Ghia and appearing with Roger Moore at the helm in The Saints, we have the swoopy, gorgeous and sporty 2+2 we see here.

This White example from DNA represents the 1961 Jenson version of the car, featuring details like mud flaps and a full, highly detailed interior. check out this great addition to the Model Car Hall of Fame.
