1983 Volvo 240

Ride Rating


I've had this car for 16 years. The result of a (very) slow transformation from daily driver to track machine, this '83 240 has finally retired from being my primary transportation and is beginning to earn its stripes on the auto-x circuit. Stripped out and cammed, lowered and stiffened, it's a lot of fun. For now, it runs in normally aspirated guise, but I have plans to make it absolutely terrifying with a built turbo motor. 400HP ought to do it :)

Sounds awesome in the video :). What's your power estimate?

I haven't taken it on the street yet to do a solid pull, but I'd guesstimate I've got close to 200HP with the cam, turbo, exhaust and high SCR.
