"I've never seen a 242 Turbo in this amazing condition before, in addition, it has a delicious color combination."


This rust free Volvo Turbo was brought into Sweden in 2011. Here it underwent a renovation and the goal was to get it in mint condition. Many new parts were replaced including new doors, wings, bonnet and tailgate. New NOS wheels, bushings in chassis, new springs, shock absorbers and new brakes all around. Lots of new engine parts and engine bay detailing and repainted in an exhibition finish. There are no pirate parts anywhere, only originals. New grills moldings, bumpers and trims were fitted to achieve the goal.
It is equipped with sunroof, intercooler, leather upholstery, central locking, electric lifts, electric mirrors (air control not). Electric overdrive M46, steering servo and AC (works but not so cold).

Facts about the model

Turboversionen var den dyraste prestandamodellen av Volvos familjevagn 240. Lanseringen skedde 1980 och de första bilarna såldes som årsmodell 1981. Året efter lanserades 245 Turbo. Bilarna var dock bara för vissa marknader och några till den svenska blev det aldrig de första åren. De första 245 Turbo som såldes i Sverige fick årsmodell 1984. Sista året för Turbon blev 1985 och då erbjöds bara kombiversionen. 242 Turbo var framförallt avsedd för den amerikanska marknaden samt som en homologeringsmodell för att kunna tävla framför allt på bana och i synnerhet BTCC.
Förutom motorn var det en rad specifika detaljer. På utsidan var det egentligen bara fälgarna av Volvos Virgomodell och emblemen som skiljde Turbo från GLT. Inuti var det tydligare med plyschklädsel och hastighetsmätare graderad till 220 km/h. Ratten var också speciell, liksom läderdamasken runt växelspaken. Dessutom fick sedanmodellen svart innertak.
Under huven satt en B21ET med turbo från amerikanska Garrett, och med 155 hk klarade 240 Turbo 0-100 km/h på 9 sekunder. Få bilar rullar dock idag med original oljekyld turbo eftersom de byttes mot vattenkylda när de havererade. Någon Intercooler satt aldrig original, däremot fanns den att köpa via Volvo R-Sport och med en sådan monterad fick motorn hela 170 hk
