Based on the S60 T6 AWD, the new concept again features the same stunning signature paint as well as a 500hp engine, custom bodywork, chassis and interior upgrades.

Claiming 500hp at 6500rpm and 420 lb-ft at 5500rpm, the improvements were achieved with cylinder head and combustion chamber modifications as well as a custom intake manifold and air intake system as well as a Garrett 3171 turbo on a custom manifold with a 3.5” Ferrita stainless steel exhaust system. A set of strengthened connecting rods were also specified to create a more robust assembly.

The chassis benefited from fully adjustable Öhlins suspension at each corner, making the car lower, while the Haldex all-wheel drive system was modified to improve traction.

Part of the development process was undertaken by Polestar’s own team of professional racing drivers, including Robert Dahlgren, who commented: “The Volvo S60 is a well sorted car from start but our concept car has the chassis, engine and transmission just the way we want it. The result is a huge leap forward in terms of handling and performance and is the most impressive street Volvo I’ve ever driven. Yet it has retained a genuine Volvo feel.”
