Volvo and Polestar Performance have worked their magic once again, this time on this particular model, which has been called the V40 Carbon.

After introducing the famous Polestar models a few years back, Volvo and Polestar Performance has recently introduced yet another vehicle, the V40 Carbon in this case. The particular ride has been based on the V40 R-Design and it is coming with several features which are helping it stand out from the regular cars such as the unique 19-inch alloy wheels, the carbon fiber roof, the carbon fiber side mirror caps, the black tailpipes or black accents on its body.

“The engineers of Polestar have transferred the same development philosophy as when optimizing race cars to the new optimization for the V40 Carbon. The key areas of improvement are drivability and driving control, fully utilizing the latest and most advanced ever drivetrain from Volvo”, said the company in its official press release.

Changes made to the cabin are limited and they include the carbon fiber sill plates or the red seatbelts, amongst others. As far as the engine lineup goes, Volvo says that two units will be offered, the T5, with its 253 HP (186 kW) and 400 Nm (294 lb-ft) of torque, coming with 25 HP (18 kW) and 50 Nm (36 lb-ft) of torque more, along with the D4, rated at 200 HP (247 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque, 16 HP (11 kW) and 40 Nm (29 lb-ft) of torque more.
