04/22/2013

Volvo of Willoughby is proud to announce that Volvo has introduced the production version of the S60 Polestar, just months after the concept was revealed.

Online PR News – 22-April-2013 – Cleveland, OH – Volvo of Willoughby is proud to announce that the first road car from Polestar, the Volvo S60 Polestar, is finally here.

"We have built a car that we, as car enthusiasts, want to drive. This is a driver's car, bringing out the very best of the already competent Volvo S60 chassis with our experience and technology from motorsport," says Christian Dahl, Managing Director of Polestar.

So far, only a limited number of S60 Polestars have been produced. These cars will be sold exclusively in the Australian market for research and testing purposes, and expansion to further markets will depend on the results from the Australian market.
Australia has always been a strong market for performance cars, and this is what led Volvo to test the S60 Polestar in Australia.

The Volvo S60 Polestar went through extensive testing and work before the final product was finally approved for production. Thousands of miles of roads were driven in all kinds of conditions, including the fast autobahns in Germany and the twisted roads in southern Spain.

"We have taken the best bits of the standard S60 T6 and our S60 Polestar Concept Car, creating a vehicle that puts a smile on your face when you drive it over your favorite twisty road. At the same time, it is more than capable of everyday driving, too,” says Volvo Polestar Racing driver Robert Dahlgren.

Underneath the hood is a 6 cylinder inline T6 engine, capable of allowing the S60 Polestar to reach 60 MPH in 4.9 seconds. The engine has max RPM of 6500, and also comes with Polestar engine software.

Volvo of Willoughby is excited to find out more details about the release of the Volvo S60 Polestar. Make sure to keep up with all the latest release information about the S60 by Liking Volvo of Willoughby on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LeikinVolvo.
