🇫🇷 Un superbe tour d'horizon sur la génèse de la 740/760 avec de nombreux inédits. En commençant par les premiers rendus au 1/5e (à 3:51) sous la direction de Jan Wilsgaard, maquettes au 1:5 en clay, maquette de souffleries (9:53), tests clinique (10:50) jusqu'au prototypage et mulet (14:50). La vidéo est un peu longue mais vaut vraiment le détour !

I find it interesting how they gloss over the project name change from P51 to 1155 without explaining the context, but I understand that this was meant to be essentially propaganda for Volvo, and the context for why would not have been good press.
