A V8-Powered Volvo Amazon Hotrod? Why Not!
If there is one thing to be said about the current group of custom car builders, it’s that they are coming up with some rather unique builds. Gone are the days of the old school hotrods, and in their place, cars much more out there on the spectrum of what is considered a normal build. Luckily, these “out there” builds are absolutely amazing in every way. Take this Volvo Amazon for instance. On the outside, it’s a Volvo Amazon, except for some stylistic changes around the fenders, and front and rear fascias. However, poke your head inside the car, or under the hood and everything from Volvo has been stripped out. RELATED: Check Out This Amazing Phaeton Hotrod
In the place of Volvo’s original inline four-cylinder engine, the builders of this amazing creation swapped in a turbo BMW-sourced V8 that puts down over 750 horsepower. That power is then sent through a Nissan R32 GT-R drivetrain to all four wheels.
One special piece the builders of this ridiculous machine also decided to put into the car was a system that would allow the driver to change where the power was sent to. This new system allows the car to either be the AWD monster that’s capable of hitting 60 miles per hour in under 3.2 seconds, or a 750 horsepower drift car by switching 100% of the power to the rear wheels.

Additionally, the builders stripped the entire insides of the car out in favor of a race-prepped interior, complete with full cage, and a set of racing seats with five-point harnesses. If this is the kind of hotrod we can look forward to in the future, then the next few decades are going to be awesome, and super weird.
Although we would gladly take this ride off the builders' hands, would it be wrong since we’re still waiting for a 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco with a full APR stage 2 tuned Golf R swap. Now that would be amazing. However, if you’re in the market for a Volvo Amazon with 750 horsepower and all-wheel drive, then you can go here, because this one is currently for sale.
