Volvo x is a Pro-touring build styled 1967 Volvo Amazon built by Swedish Ops and is equipped with all the modern performance and convenience of today's high performance store bought cars, but it is a wolf in sheep's clothing with the timeless retro style that is still relevant today and fits in any environment from racetrack to the lavish resort hotel. These Classic Volvo's share a lot of subliminal body lines and features of our most beloved 50's and 60's American cars, so you will see a lot of Chevrolet, Ford, and even NYC Taxi Cab if you really look at the car, and I personally think that is why this car has been silently saved and set aside by the people that didn't have the heart to crush them like the Pinto's and Chevette's of yesteryear.
This Volvo 122 Amazon is powered by a 600+ horsepower LS3 in front of the Tremec TKO600 5-speed Transmission, and that is turning the Mod-9in rear end with a 3:33 Detroit Locker rear end 4-link assembly for bite. All the suspension is Swedish Ops designed and is exclusively being manufactured/retailed by Mad Volvo Performance (MVP) as a fully assembled and direct bolt in kit, with a standard component list and options like Ridetech Triple Adjust Coil Overs and Wilwood Disc Brakes up to 14in 6-piston, and that is just what Volvo X is running now with addition of the CCW 18x10 and 18x11 wheels and Falken Azenis 275/35/18 front and 315/30/18 rear tire combination to ensure the car gets all the grip it can. Weighing in at 2900 pounds fully loaded with all the modern conveniences like AC, Power Windows, Entertainment System, Fully Sound deadened, and Full Interior, this car gets 25+ mpg and is a daily driver that adds about15k miles a year of hard driving on and off the track to the odometer.
Volvo X has also been a feature car in the Optima Battery "Search for the Ultimate Street Car Series" the last two years, and has participated in the qualifiers at the Texas Motor Speedway and Michigan International Speedway qualifiers, while winning its invite to SEMA for display in Optima Alley with all the top 100 finalist, and then racing at Las Vegas Speedway that very week in the Optima Battery exclusive Invitational event. While qualifying for display at the SEMA Convention, Volvo X was also chosen as one of the top finalist for the SEMA Battle of the Builders Competition, and was also featured in the Velocity Channel's SEMA Battle of the Builders special as a finalist.
