Volvo has teamed up with its motorsport partner Polestar to offer a limited edition of the popular V60 estate in 2014. Needless to say, blistering high performance will be at the heart of the model.
Since 1996, Polestar has been working alongside the Swedish carmaker to deliver their motorsport programme, and the companies have now stepped into the road car market together with an impressive offering.
The V60 Polestar is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which delivers 345bhp and 369lb/ft of torque. Power is delivered by all four wheels and a six-speed automatic gearbox helps propel you from 0-60mph in approximately 4.9 seconds. A new performance exhaust system creates an aggressive engine note, which couples with paddle shift transmission to accentuate the sporting feel. Inside, the Polestar features sports seats to increase comfort and support as well as a dedicated steering wheel that places mounted controls at your fingertips.
Motorsport enthusiasts are likely to be bowled over by this stunning creation from two of the motor industry’s most innovative names. Despite its obvious motorsport influence, the V60 Polestar retains the practicality of its sibling, and is likely to catch the eye of those who desire more thrilling driveability during every day travelling.
The new V60 Polestar will be available from June 2014, and you can discover this exhilarating vehicle with Johnsons Cars. Browse the new Volvo pages of our website or contact us today for more information.
