The Torslanda… A very Nordic special edition Volvo 240

The Volvo 240 was the car that proved to be so good, Volvo struggled to replace it. Production spanned from 1973 to 1994, that’s almost 20 years as the world’s favourite estate car! Three million (3,000,000) were produced during this timeframe, so you’ll be amazed to find out just how many ‘Torslanda’ edition cars are left in the UK today…

During almost two decades in production, there were a number of special edition Volvo 240 incarnations to entice buyers, with the Torslanda being the final roll of the dice before the 240 was finally phased out in 1994.

Despite numerous other special editions, it is this late model Torslanda that has captured hearts and minds and continues to be the most desirable version of the lovable Volvo 240.

Offering three different exterior colours, tinted windows, plastic exterior trim, l multi spoke alloy wheels, stylish body striping and the iconic Torslanda badges; these cars also came with heated seats as standard. In 1994 some 1,700 were registered on UK roads, but as we type here in 2020 just 215 are showing as licensed and a further 163 are SORNed… A total of just 378 cars!

The world’s favourite estate car has enjoyed a steady rise in both popularity and values as it’s place in the classic car world has become cemented. Now is a great time to ride the wave of ‘modern classic enthusiasm’ and secure yourself the ultimate practical classic.
