"The 240 series high point. Much admired and attractive among collectors today."


It was sold new somewhere in Västergötland and spent the entire eighties and nineties there with three different owners. The car then wandered down to Småland and Skåne where it is now.

According to the register, it has a total of 9 owners, but in reality, it appears to have been 6 owners. Five years ago, the previous owner decided to do a complete renovation. He was careful to use only original parts off the shelf at the Volvo dealer or New Old Stock parts.

The current owner bought it spontaneously at auction just over a year ago and has driven just under 1000 km since then.

This is why it is now up for auction again. The car was recently inspected/MOTed in August.

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.
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.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
