Volvo and Polestar have recently pulled the wraps off the S60 Polestar performance concept car, in its pre-production form.
After we have seen the official teaser video with the model just earlier today, the Volvo S60 Polestar Performance Concept is now being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the two companies officially pulling the wraps off its body. The Volvo S60 Polestar will have some tough fights to carry because the model is considered a rival for the popular BMW M5, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and the Audi RS6.
The Volvo S60 Polestar is coming with a modified front bumper, an upgraded rear bumper which is incorporating the Ferrita 3.5-inch stainless steel exhaust system, Polestar seats in the cabin, a lowered dashboard and some other tweaks, which should help the model differentiate from the standard version.
“Polestar’s heart and soul is motorsport and our main focus is to deliver the absolute best results for Volvo on the track. But over the years we have also seen a significant increase in demand for Volvo performance cars and parts and naturally we want to respond to this”, said the found and CEO of Polestar, Christian Dahl.
Power to the Volvo S60 Polestar is being provided by the T6 inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 508 HP (379 kW) and it has a peak torque of 575 Nm (424 lb-ft), sent to the wheels through a reinforced close ration manual six-speed transmission and the Haldex Gen4 XWD (cross wheel drive) system. This is allowing the model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
