Volvo introduced today the all-new V60 Polestar, a high-performance version of the popular V60 station wagon which promises to debut on four continents around the world in 2014. As expected, the new Volvo V60 Polestar comes with multiple upgrades such as modifications made to increase rigidity of the chassis to cater for the 80% stiffer springs, high performance Ohlins shock absorbers, 20-inch Polestar wheels as well as 371 mm ventilated front discs and six-piston Brembo calipers.
The 2014 V60 Polestar comes with improved aerodynamics thanks to new front splitters, the new rear spoiler and the air diffuser. Under the hood, there is a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo-charged T6 engine developing 350 hp (257 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque.
A new 2.5-inch stainless steel exhaust system was added in order to make a throaty engine note.
The engine is bolted to a six-speed automatic gearbox that features a new paddle shift system that together with the Polestar-developed Haldex four-wheel drive system it can push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds and to a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. The weight of the V60 Polestar is 1822 kg.
