The V8 Speedster from Swedish company Caresto is powered by a mid-mounted 4.4 litre ethanol-fueled Volvo V8 developing 340 horsepower @ 5850 rpm.

The Caresto V8 Speedster was designed and built by ex-Volvo designer Leif Tufvesson, and his friend and designer Per Gyllenspetz. Leif also created the Volvo T6 Roadster shown at the 2005 SEMA show on the Volvo stand. The T6 was also awarded "Hot Rod of The Year" by Hot Rod Magazine.

The Caresto V8 Speedster features a custom fabricated tubular steel frame, hand crafted aluminium body, carbon composite hard top roof, fully independent front and rear suspension with Ohlins shock absorbers, 4-piston Brembo brake calipers and ventilated discs. One unique feature of the Caresto V8 Speedster is a sensor in the engine compartment which can tell when the temperature is getting a little hot and automatically open the rear hatch to allow cooling air to enter.

For the interior Caresto has trimmed the V8 Speedster in the finest Scottish leather. Caresto aim to produce and sell a minimum of six V8 Speedsters around the world, each tailored to the individual buyers tastes.
