The Volvo P1800 Cyan has been named the 2020 "Retro Hero of the Year" by Top Gear.
"Retro is big in the automotive world right now. Singer. Alfaholics. Basically, old new, is the new new. With so much brilliant classic new metal around, our Retro Hero of the Year had to be something a bit special. And it is. It's the Volvo P1800 Cyan."
The Top Gear Awards was broadcast live online because of the pandemic, with a total of 18 cars hosted by the Stig, Jack Rix, Chris Harris, Paddy McGuiness and Freddie Flintoff.
