The Saint’s Volvo

Dashing. Dynamic. Debonair. The Volvo P1800 even outshone Roger Moore on the set of the iconic 60's TV spy show 'The Saint'. Volvo supplied five P1800s for the show: four for filming, and one chopped up for better interior shots. Forty years on, the P1800, is still a style icon of the motoring world; one that’s reflected today in the rear window of the Volvo C30.

OUR PHILOSOPHY IN PRACTICE

‘Good design is not only a matter of styling the surface. It is just as important to make the product easy to understand and use. If the product is not functional, it can’t be beautiful.’ The Volvo Car Corporation Design Philosophy

BEAUTIFUL AND SAFE

The hallmarks of Scandinavian design are impeccable craftsmanship, elegant simplicity and functionality. Function is as important as aesthetics in Scandinavia, and for Volvo, this means placing both beauty and safety at the heart of our design.

DESIGNED FOR YOU

At Volvo, our approach has always been to place people first in everything we do. Designing the car around the driver makes sure our cars are more comfortable, safer and places you in complete control.
