New Cars: 2015 Volvo S/V60 Polestar

Volvo has revealed two new high-performance Polestar models, based on the S60 saloon and V60 estate. Under the bonnet the 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-charged engine is now fitted with twin-scroll turbos and a new intercooler, for a total of 345bhp – a slight reduction from the 500bhp in the original S60 Polestar Concept, revealed in June last year.

Upgrades over the standard models include modifications made to increase the rigidity of the chassis, 80 per cent stiffer springs and Ohlins performance shock absorbers, along with 20-inch Polestar wheels. Power is delivered to the road through a Haldex all-wheel drive system and six-speed automatic gearbox with a new paddle shift system. Both Polestar models will hit 62mph in 4.9 seconds and top out at an electrically limited 155mph.

There are subtle aero tweaks too, including a new front splitter, rear spoiler and rear diffuser to increase downforce. The brakes have also undergone substantial modifications, with new ventilated front discs and six-piston Brembo callipers. Changes to the interior are less dramatic with new details such as the steering wheel and seats being finished in Polestar colours.

Further details and final production numbers will be released next year, with first deliveries beginning in June 2014. Prices are also yet to be released, but expect a price tag of around £40,000. For more details click here.
