Volvo P1800: Classic Spy Car - XCAR
James Bond is the ultimate gentleman spy. He has to coolest toys, hottest women and best one liners. But his taste in cars is liable to get him killed. I mean, rocking around in an Aston is going to draw attention to yourself isn't it? So why not try a Volvo? A Volvo P1800 to be precise... I say this because Simon Templar, the Saint, used one. His P1800 S is one of television's most iconic motors and, I think, one of the better spy cars. The Volvo P1800 is Volvo's second crack at a sports car. Its first, the P1900 was not a rousing success. They sold (almost literally) a handful and went off the idea of making anything sporty for a while. The P1800 project was a labour of love and, as with all these things, had a rocky start. Volvo couldn't make the car itself, so sought out the help of Karmann. Karmann were initially keen but their chief client, Volkswagen, wasn't happy about a secondary partnership with a rival. The deal was killed and the P1800's future was in doubt. Stiff upper lips and the famous British work ethic stepped in to save the day -- Jensen threw its hat into the ring and won the contract. The firm was to make 10,000 cars. It didn't. It only got through 6,000 before Volvo politely asked them to stop. Why? Because while British engineering was top notch, our ability to actually build cars was not. At all. Volvo took P1800 production in house for the rest of its run, creating the P1800 S, E and ES (an estate thingy). Simon Templar's involvement with the car is pretty simple -- the show's producers asked Jaguar for an E-Type and they said no. As with many things, the second choice ended up with the better deal. I'm not saying the E-Type was in any way forgotten, but how stratospherically famous would it have been if it had been the Saint's motor? Thought so...

Classic Car Record: Volvo P1800 3 Million Mile Motor
Classic Car Record: Volvo P1800 3 Million Mile Motor SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj Auto mad Irvin Gordon is set to enter the record books when his beloved classic car Volvo P1800 clocks up a staggering THREE MILLION miles. And incredibly the 70-year-old's classic car Volvo P1800 - which he bought in 1966- has NEVER broken down. To date, Irvin's classic Volvo P1800 has had 857 oil changes, 30 drive belts, 150 points and spark plugs - and guzzled 120 bottles of transmission fluid. The retired school teacher bought the classic Volvo P1800 convertible for £2,650 after a THREE-HOUR test drive with a friend. In 2009, the classic car received a Guinness World Record for the 'Highest Vehicle Mileage', clocking in excess of 2,721,000 miles. Videographer / Director: Laurentiu Garofeanu Producer: Liam Miller Editors: Joshua Douglas / Ian Phillips MOTOR-mad Irvin Gordon is set to enter the record books when his beloved Volvo clocks up a staggering THREE MILLION miles. And incredibly the 70-year-old's runaround - which he bought in 1966- has NEVER broken down. To date, Irvin's car has had 857 oil changes, 30 drive belts, 150 points and spark plugs - and guzzled 120 bottles of transmission fluid. The retired school teacher bought the convertible for £2,650 after a THREE-HOUR test drive with a friend. Irvin, from Long Island, New York, said: "I just couldn't get out of the car. I was having such a good time. "I spent all Friday night, all day Saturday, all day Sunday and came back Monday for a 1500 mile check up. "Most people think it's crazy that I've clocked up so many miles -- but driving is my drug of choice. "Where other people get rid of their cars after a few years, I've never got tired of mine. "I used to go on driving holidays and had a 125 mile commute to work every day -- so the miles just added up." Over 46 years with his car Irvin has driven through the USA, UK, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Holland, Canada and Mexico. He averages 60,000 miles a year - but can do as many as 100,000. He said: "I'm sure I'll feel very bad once I find out how much I've spent on maintaining the car - I spent thousands of dollars every year on gasoline. "But I like to drive -- it's my hobby. "I choose to spend my time at the gas station filling the car up." Divorced Irvin says one benefit of being on the road so much is he knows American highways so well he no longer needs a map. He said: "My friends used to think I was slightly nuts for driving as much as I do, but now that I am getting all of this attention for my Volvo, they are very impressed. "I've made a lot of friends because of this car." In nearly 50 years of ownership, his car has never broken down. However, the car may have broken other things for Irvin. He said: "I don't see my ex-wife or my kids. I can't say if that is because of the driving." Irvin will be driving his three millionth mile on his Volvo P1800 in Alaska this autumn - then plans to continue using the car unless someone purchases it. He said: "I'm entertaining the idea of selling it for a dollar a mile. "It's just been driven by a little old school teacher on the weekends. "It has never been in the rain, snow or any inclement weather. "It's practically a new car!"

Gordon, a 73-year-old retired science teacher from Patchogue, N.Y., holds the Guinness Book of World Records recognition for most miles driven by a single owner in a non-commercial vehicle, and has driven more than 2.99 million miles in his shiny red Volvo.

(HD) EP: Volvo P1800 Coupé 1962 - Test Drive - Proefrit - Probefahrt - Giro di prova!
We make these videos because we love cars. Please help us keep making them by liking our videos. Thank you very much! Recently we came across this beautiful Volvo P1800 Coupé 1962 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one! The project was started in 1957 because Volvo wanted a sports car, despite the fact that their previous attempt, the P1900, had been a disaster, with only 68 cars sold. The man behind the project was an engineering consultant to Volvo, Helmer Petterson, who in the 1940s was responsible for the Volvo PV444. The design work was done by Helmer's son Pelle Petterson, who worked at Pietro Frua at that time. Volvo insisted it was an Italian design by Frua and only officially recognized that Pelle Petterson designed it in 2009.[4] The Italian Carrozzeria Pietro Frua design firm (then a recently acquired subsidiary of Ghia) built the first three prototypes between September 1957 and early 1958, later designated by Volvo in September 1958 : P958-X1, P958-X2 and P958-X3, (P:Project 9:September 58:Year 1958 = P958)
