Facts about the model

The P1800 was presented to the public at the Brussels car show as early as January 1960 and was built until 1972 as a coupe model. Then for another year and a half as a sports-hatchback model which was named P1800 ES.
In the first years the body parts were pressed in England where the cars also were assembled at Jensen Motors under license. In 1964 the production was moved to Gothenburg and the cars got an S added in the model designation (P1800S). In total, approx. 30,000 cars of P1800, P1800S, P1800E and P1800 ES were produced.
