Nicely Done if you ask me: <A HREF="http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/mattias-vocks-volvo-p1800" TARGET="_blank">http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-...p1800</A><p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Vocks is a Koenigsegg engineer by day, but in his spare hours creates modified, retro-modern Volvos. This time he’s turned his attentions to the P1800 – the car driven by Roger Moore in The Saint, if you’re thinking it looks slightly familiar – with the help of Swedish design firm Vizualtech.<p>OK, it’s only a rendering at this stage, but it’s a good looking rendering, isn’t it? We like those skinny pillars and chromed front end, though we might change the wheels for something a little more classic.<p>Vocks is keen to put the P1800 into limited production, though, armed with a 4.4-litre V8 nicked from a Volvo XC90 and a big turbocharger to put out around 600bhp through the rear wheels.<p>Want one?</TD></TR></TABLE>

I read that yesterday, it's pretty cool. I wonder if it will actually be something that people will buy. It's also pretty neat how the Koenigsegg guys have a little respect for their brethren.
