[VIDEO] Volvo Polestar Racing teased

Volvo has released a new teaser video with the Polestar racer, which will be making its debut on the track on the 15th of February.

“Just as for our road car engines, our main objective is drivability or ‘power when you need it’ as our racing drivers say. The challenges are many to get an optimal combination of power, reliability, fuel efficiency and drivability. The Volvo engines are always very good to work with from the start and this one is certainly no exception”, said Mattias Evensson, the Polestar head of engine development.

The Volvo Polestar Racing is taking its power from a 5.0 liter V8 engine, which is actually based on the 4.4 liter V8 used in the S80 and XC90, which has received a modified aluminum block, a 10:1 compression ratio, eight throttle bodies, new aluminum heads and some other tweaks. The total output produced by the engine stands at 650 HP (478 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque. Just like we said above, the S60 race car will be making its debut on the track, on the 15th of February, and it will then be competing in the Clipsal 500, on March 1st and 2nd.
