In 1969, at the Geneva International Motor Show, Olsson cars presented their very first mid engined sportscar, they modestly called it the “sport” followed by the amount of horsepower of the model: 100 for the Flat 4, and 190 for the V6.
The Sport was made out of aluminium panels and had magnesium wheels on the V6 version.
A very late facelift have been made, in 1976. The Sports department: Orkan
The 1st Olsson Orkan was the Sport Orkan, who was a limited edition (250 models) with a V8 directly taken from the competition.
1969-1976 Sport 100
The base model, with a 1.8L Flat 4 with twin carbs that produce 100 horsepower, and weights 974kg.
1976-1978 Sport 100 and 190
The facelift of the sport 100 had the same F4 engine, but enhanced, with an improved fuel eco. As the Facelift of the Sport 100, the 190 has the same V6 but a bit more efficient. The following pics are the Sport 100
1976-1978 Sport Orkan
And now, the very first Orkan badged of the company. The car was in limited production because it was made for the competition approval. Due to this, the car was very expensive to buy, and maintain.
The small V8 of 2.8L produced 250HP, just detuned a little for the fuel available in the market and make “driveable” everyday. It’s today one of the most coveted Olsson by collectors.
The Sport facelift also changed the pop up headlight for hidden ones
