The 1983 Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution is a sports car that debuted in Forza Motorsport 3 as part of a downloadable car pack. It also appears in Forza Motorsport 4 and in a downloadable car pack for Forza Horizon 3.

The 242 Turbo Evolution is a limited run of turbocharged models that were sold in 1983 for Group A homologation. It was exclusively sold in North America, where it is known as the 'Flatnose' by car enthusiasts as its hood was only present on European models.

DescriptionEdit

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 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.
