This eVolvo 1800 Ain't No Saint!

Rob Ida Concepts has created what they call the eVolvo, which is a highly modified version of a 1971 Volvo 1800E.

The eVolvo is an especially unique and stunning automobile, and showcases just how far the original Volvo body style could go with just a few subtle and tasteful modifications. If you feel the need for Swede then this is the ultimate car. Once owned by Ron Dutton (who recently traded it away for a 1961 'Vette), this coupe surely ain't no Saint! It has a 2.3L Ford Duratec engine, with a turbo charger and intercooler, backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. The reshaped body with wider quarter panels, sharpened grill with frenched headlights, flush-mount tailights, and 18" billet wheels give this street legal car an exteme look unlike any other Volvo on the road today. The down-in-the weeds stance is due to lowering springs, extra heavy sway bars, and Bilstein gas shocks -- perfect for keeping a low profile.

Surely when this car was shown at the 2004 SEMA show with Volvo of North America, people must have thought that The Saint was back! Visit RobIdaConcepts.com for a full set of high-quality photos of the eVolvo.
