The Australian Federal Police has recently began testing out the Volvo S60 Polestar in order to see if this has what it takes in order to become a police car.
Australia may get some brand new police cars for its roads, in the shape of the Volvo S60 Polestar, which is currently being tested out in order to see if this has what it takes to get the mission done. This isn’t actually the first time when policemen in the Pacific country are seeing the S60 Polestar in their lineup, because just last year, such a model has been gifted to the police department.
“We are particularly interested in our officers’ opinions on the all-wheel drive capability of the S60 and what advantages it offers over our current rear-wheel drive fleet”, said Rob Anderson, the Station Sergeant.
The Volvo S60 Polestar has been officially unveiled quite some time ago and it is packing in a 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 engine, which is capable of producing a total output of 345 HP (257 kW) and it has a peak torque of 500 Nm (369 lb-ft). The unit is connected to the 6-speed automatic transmission which is allowing the performance sedan to reach a top speed which has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) and to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 5 seconds. The S60 Polestar has, besides the updated engine, the tuned chassis, high performance brakes and dampers.
