Turbocharged, V8, AWD 1967 Volvo Amazon

For the people on the outside looking in, car culture can seem like a strange thing. For the people that get it, however, nothing is quite as exciting as seeing a project car like this one: an all-wheel drive, turbocharged, V8-powered 1967 Volvo Amazon.

Built by Filip Malm and photographed by Speedhunters’ Dino Dalle Carbonare, this Volvo Amazon has been stripped and gutted to save weight, then stuffed with a modern, BMW-sourced 4.0L V8 engine and all-wheel drive powertrain.

There is almost no part of the Amazon that hasn’t received attention from Malm, but- even with BMW power- I think you’ll agree that this is one of the more unique Volvo builds out there. You can see even more detailed photos by following this link over to Speedhunters, then let us know what you think of this wild Amazon in the comments, below.
