1983 Volvo LCP 2000

LCP 2000 stands for "Light Component Project 2000". Volvo researched different directions and in 1983 published its LCP 2000 project (Light Component Project 2000 - "Project for the use of light materials 2000"), within which several cars with different engines were created. They were tested with different types of fuel. Front-wheel drive cars were made primarily from lightweight materials such as aluminum, magnesium, and various types of plastics. Various turbocharged diesel engines were used as power plants, although one was designed to run on rapeseed oil. Suspension, steering, brakes, and electrical systems were made most modern.
