The Volvo Car corporation has built a mini Volvo, which takes care of very special transport requirements during the European Athletics championships in Gothenburg. The car, which is a one to five scale model of the Volvo XC90, was developed to be able to quickly and smoothly transport Javelins, hammers or discus’, from the place where they land, back to the thrower again. Volvo has hand-built four unique small bodies, mounted on electrically driven chassis developed by the Nordic Sport Company.


The radio-controlled mini Volvo, with a two horse power electric motor, is capable of transporting either four discus, three javelins or two hammers.

Two hammers together weigh fourteen kilos. The little car has been greatly appreciated when fully loaded and at a speed of twenty kilometres an hour, it scampers over the grass in the Ullevi stadium in Gothemburg.

However, Volvo does not have any plans afoot to mass produce the mini XC 90 model.
