Volvo S60 Polestar ultra-performance concept revealed
When most people think of Volvo, the image is one of a safe family vehicle that will get them to their destination in comfort. But Volvo is beginning to change that image with the help of Polestar, who is the official partner of Volvo. Polestar is Volvo’s performance tuner and motorsport partner who has already developed a race-ready S60 that is successful on the track. As we reported last month, a Volvo S60 Polestar performance model has been in the works and now details have been officially released with some exciting performance numbers.
The S60 Polestar is expected to compete with some of the world’s finest super sedans like the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG. And with the just released numbers, they may be able to do just that. Polestar's goal all along was to combine the same comfortable Volvo driving experience with a high level of power and handling.
Robert Dahlgren, Volvo Polestar racing driver, comments the driving experience: “to me the Volvo S60 is a very well sorted car from start. In our concept car we have developed chassis, engine and transmission just like we want it, and the result is a huge leap forward in terms of handling and performance. It is, by far, the most impressive street Volvo I’ve ever driven. But I must also say that the genuine Volvo feeling is still there. “
