Volvo 240 Wagon X Toyota Supra Aristo Mashup

volvo_240_supra_wagon.jpg

Crazy. Some guy in Hiroshima decided to drop a 300+ HP, twin-turbo, 2JZ GTE inline 6-cylinder engine from the Toyota Aristo [the JDM incarnation of the Lexus GS300, which was the only other model besides the Supra to get the engine] into a late model Volvo 240 Wagon. Now it's for sale on Yahoo Auctions, for an asking price of around 2 million yen [USD 21,000].

While the ground effects and whatnot hint at the wagon's barnstorming capabilities, the original owner apparently wanted the interior to look as stock Volvo as possible. So I guess we don't need any interior photos.

Finally something on the Japanese streets that's as powerful AND ugly as the first generation Stagea.

In the US, if you want a fast 240, the easiest way to go is with a Ford 302 conversion.
