Volvo - LCP 2000

LCP 2000 (Light Component Project)1983

The LCP 2000 project comprised several cars with different engine options for testing different types of fuel. The LCP was built largely from lightweight materials, such as aluminium, magnesium and plastics. The engines were turbocharged diesels, although one of the types was designed to burn other fuels, such as rapeseed oil. The body suspension, wheel suspension, steering system, brakes and electrical system boasted many state-of-the-art features and the cars were front wheel-driven.
