The Swedish based automaker Volvo has recently announced its plans to introduce the S60 Polestar Concept during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, later on this month.
After it was officially unveiled earlier this year in June, the Volvo S60 Polestar is entering our news once again, this time with the carmaker announcing its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show on the 28th of November. According to the car manufacturer, the Volvo S60 Polestar Concept is coming with a conservative body kit, with larger anti-roll bars, with high-performance braking, with a sport-tuned suspension system and with 19-inch Polestar alloy wheels.
Volvo says that the S60 Polestar Concept is powered by a six-cylinder engine equipped with a Garret 3171 turbocharger, with an upgraded air intake, with modified combustion chambers, with a new cylinder head and with a Ferrita stainless steel exhaust system. The result is a total output of 508 BHP (379 kW) and 575 Nm of torque (424 lb-ft), enough to let the sedan accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The Volvo S60 Polestar will be a rival to models like the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and Audi RS6.
