Philip was a large car powered by a large V8 engine; however, the embryonic tail fins distinctly follow the American trend. The idea of building a car more similar to an American model than the small, rounded PV was conceived in 1952, some years before Volvo made its first attempt to enter the North American market with the 122S and PV544 in 1959. Although the car might now be considered attractive, it never reached production.
