Introducing the Mayo P1. It's a custom built car based on the mechanicals of a Saab 9000 by a guy named Leif Mellberg.

The Mayo P1 was built in the early 1990s using a lot of parts from the Saab 9000. Mellberg built it based on designs by Sune Envall, the brother of legendary Saab designer, Bjorn Envall.

Mellberg envisioned a run of 20 of these vehicles, but only one was ever made, mostly due to economic conditions at the time. The car cost around 1.5million SEK and that's in 1991 money!
