Espingtorpet is located within the Volvo Hällered Proving Ground in Sandhult, northwest of Borås, Sweden.

When Volvo bought in the late 1960s almost a third part of Hällered, there were three old soldattorp or (soldier) residence left in the area. Two of them were in a terrible state, but one is still there, the building we know today as Espingtorpet. From here, you can today hear and see the Volvo test cars driving by.
