Facts about the model

Modellen kom 1978 och såldes bara i två år i Sverige innan den till 1980 ersattes av 240 Turbo.
242 GT var populär i USA och Canada. Där såldes dessa bilar även som årsmodell 1980 och 1981. Sista året, 1981 kunde man i USA och Canada även köpa bilmodellen med svart kulör och röda dekorränder på utsidan samt Turbons fälgar och frontspoiler.
I Sverige ansågs de för dyra, nästan 30% dyrare än en vanlig 242 DL. (Men ändock 20% billigare än 262 Bertone coupe, som hade 10 Hkr mer i sin 6 cyl motor).
242 GT är idag en av den mest sällsynta av Volvo 240 modellerna, som sålts i Sverige.
