Volvo V60 Polestar

Volvo designs and sells products and services that aim at high quality, safety and environmental care. The company was shaped more than 80 years ago and has achieved a solid position and reputation worldwide, step by step in time. Volvo’s Polestar division whose goal is to obtain as good as possible performance vehicles has just revealed the Volvo V60 Polestar.


In May, this year, Polestar introduced the Volvo S60 they have been working on. Now, they focused their attention on its V60 relative, making it a more practical vehicle. This is powered by a 2953cc inline-six gasoline engine producing 350 HP (257 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. This is sent to the wheels via an automatic gearbox that includes a paddle shift system. These figures are achieved with the help of a new twin-scroll Borg Warner turbo, an intercooler and the tuner's stainless full-flow exhaust installed on the car.


The engine will enable the S60 wagon to sprint the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) distance in only 4.9 seconds. The 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) is done in 17.7 seconds while for reaching from 80 km/h (50 mph) to 120 km/h (74 mph) it will need 4.7 seconds. Polestar has electronically limited the wagon’s maximum speed to 155 mph (250 km/h). The Volvo is kept under control with the help of six-piston calipers with 371x32mm floating and ventilated Brembo front discs and 302x22mm ventilated rear discs. The vehicle now sits on the Polestar's 20-inch ET53 alloy wheels wrapped in 245/35 R20 rubbers. So, with a bit of tuning we get a pretty nice wagon.
