Barbagallo Volvo Cannington introduce to you the first Volvo Polestar production car: Volvo S60 Polestar
Developed from 17 years of motorsport experience, and sharing DNA with the 508bhp Volvo S60 Polestar Concept Car, the first road car from Polestar to be put into production is here: Volvo S60 Polestar.
"We have built a car that we, as car enthusiasts, want to drive,” says Christian Dahl, Managing Director of Polestar.
”This is a driver's car, bringing out the very best of the already competent Volvo S60 chassis with our experience and technology from motorsport.
A limited‐edition production run of just fifty (50) Volvo S60 Polestar have been developed exclusively for the Australian market as a global pilot project, with the first cars being delivered to customers in late June 2013.
Key to the development of the Volvo S60 Polestar was the extensive work done on the chassis over thousands of test kilometres in Europe ‐ from the fast Autobahns in Germany to the twisty roads of southern Spain, and the freezing cold of northern Sweden.
Cutting‐edge technology straight from the racetrack
Just as important as the men and women from Polestar who developed the car is the technology underneath it. The Volvo S60 Polestar shares technology from the Polestar racing cars, like dampers from Öhlins, high capacity brakes, and the extensively developed, highly‐tuned chassis.
A new aerodynamic package has also been developed, including a front splitter, rear wing and diffuser – all having been tweaked and modified in the Volvo Car Corporation wind tunnel in collaboration with the Volvo Research and Development team.
The six‐cylinder turbo‐charged Volvo T6 engine has been optimised by Polestar with a bigger turbo, new intercooler, revised engine mapping and racing exhaust to produce 350bhp or 257kW and 500+Nm.
The Volvo S60 Polestar accelerates from 0‐100km/h in 4.9 seconds, via a Polestar‐tuned six‐speed automatic gearbox – which also features a launch control system – and a Polestar‐tuned Haldex 4WD system. The car is governed to a top speed of 250km/h.
