When you think Volvo the first thought to come to mind may be of safety and reliability. However, this race bred homologation special should also inspire thoughts of performance that drove a half a decade of Group A racing. The 242 Turbo Evolution, also known as the Flatnose for its unique sheet metal, sports a large Garret turbocharger with intercooler as well as special springs and ventilated brakes. The 500 models created so Volvo could go racing were almost all sold in the U.S. with some 30 models sent back to Europe to go racing. This is one brick that really flies.
