For the third year in a row, Volvo Cars Heritage, the company´s historic operations, participates in the exclusive historic rally Ennstal-Classic in Austria.

This year´s Volvo is a red 1973 1800 ES, chosen to connect to the company´s estate heritage and the new V90, which shares certain design elements with its older colleague from the seventies.

Behind the wheel is Hans Hedberg, test editor of the Swedish motoring magazine Teknikens Värld. Co-driver is Hans Sylvan, who in the seventies sat beside Swedish top drivers as Stig Blomqvist and Per Eklund.
