Check Out This BMW Turbo Powered Volvo!

You read that right. Check out this insanely beautiful Volvo 242 build by Patrik Lindgren. The rear end of this 242 has been updated to a 1979, but you can barely tell as the work done is nearly flawless. The most interesting aspect of this car is under the hood- where it's powered by a BMW M50B25 (straight six DOHC engine) originally from a 1992 BMW 5-Series and complimented with a ZF gearbox. On top of that you will see a Holset HX40 Turbo with a custom split pulse exhaust manifold. This beauty puts down around 400whp.

M50B25 engine from a BMW 525 ’92, Holset HX40 turbocharger, custom split pulse exhaust manifold, 50mm wastegate, 3″ stainless downpipe, 3″ intercooler, 45mm Simon Marmander blow off valve, 550cc Lucas injectors, VAG COP ignition coils, Bosch 044 fuelpump, electric fan from Volvo V70, 4″ K&N air filter behind the grille, VEMS engine management system

ZF gearbox from a BMW 525 ’92, M20 flywheel, Sachs 618 clutch, 4 puck sinter

Coilovers in the front, cut springs in the back, front strut brace, fully adjustable camberplates

BBS RS 179.5-inch -15 with Falken 205/40R17 (front), 1711-inch -6 with Falken 245/35R17 (rear)

Rearend from a ’79, widened rear arches, no spare tyre barrel, newer plastic bumpers, front bumper has drilled holes for fresh air, all exterior chrome painted black, raised boot floor, shaved boot and passenger door locks

Full rollcage, custom rear axle mounting, transmission tunnel and tubbed rear arches, rear axle moved one inch forward, stripped interior, alumiumium doorpanels
