Volvo V60 Polestar revealed, will be available also in UK

Earlier this year Volvo unveiled the S60 Polestar exclusively for Australia, which Volvo announced today will be available globally from next year.

In addition to S60 Polestar, Volvo has unveiled the V60 Polestar with global market launch next year. In UK you won’t be able to buy the S60 Polestar, but the more practical V60 Polestar will be available in limited numbers.

Just as the four-door S60 Polestar, the V60 Polestar features upgraded chassis with stiffer springs, high performance Öhlins shock absorbers, 20-inch Polestar wheels and new brake system with 371 millimetre ventilated front discs and six-piston Brembo calipers.

Exterior updates include a new front splitter, new rear spoiler and diffusor, increasing downforce.

Power comes from a 350bhp six-cylinder turbo-charged T6 engine with 500 Nm of torque linked to a six-speed automatic gearbox with a new paddle shift system that together with the Polestar developed Haldex four-wheel drive system takes the car from 0-62mph in a quite impressive 4.9 seconds and to a limited top speed of 155mph.

Interior updates include new details, materials, Polestar colours, steering wheel, seats and more.

First deliveries are scheduled from June 2014.
