A 1961 Volvo P1800 is faster than all 2021 Volvos, which are now limited to 112 mph
First announced last year and going into effect now, all 2021 Volvos are limited to a top speed of 112 mph (180 km/hr). The company argues that this move will "help close the remaining gap to zero serious injuries and fatalities in traffic." What's more, the Swedes will also throw in a "Care Key," allowing drivers to set additional limits before lending their cars to "other family members or to younger and inexperienced drivers."
This leads us to the conclusion that, for the last sixty years, Volvo has been selling us a fleet of cars faster than what's currently deemed its sportiest offering: the $64,800 S60 T8 Polestar Engineered sedan. Six decades ago, the option of clearing 112 mph in a Swedish car all began with the stunning P1800.
