Trivia

  • In Need for Speed (2015), the 242 DL is listed as producing 138 horsepower in stock form, but only stock 1983 242 GLT models sold in Canada fitted with the Volvo Redblock B23E could produce 135 horsepower.[4]
  • In Need for Speed (2015), fitting brake discs to the 242 DL will remove the stock drum brakes, but will not include any calipers unless an aftermarket component is fitted afterwards.
