We don't know much about this insane Volvo 142, but watching it run down the 402m drag strip at the Emmaboda Motorfestival in Sweden tells us more than enough.

Using Google translate we managed to find out the engine is based off of a 2.3 liter from a S60R and has a massive turbo. At the time the information was listed the car produced 1098 horsepower, but it had a slower best time listed, a different paint job and it was still road legal back then.


If anyone has more up to date information about this car, we'd love to hear about it. If not, sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of this hot rod Volvo making an 8.16 second (276 km/h) run down this Swedish strip.
