The six-cylinder turbo-charged T6 engine has undergone extensive development with a new twin-scroll turbo and intercooler to produce 350 HP/257 kW at 5700 rpm and 500 Nm/369 lb-ft already at 2800 rpm.
To reflect the increased performance of the S/V60 Polestar, positive aerodynamic effects have been achieved through subtle, yet efficient, modifications based on data from tests in the Volvo Cars wind tunnel.
The changes are visible with the front splitters, optimising the airflow underneath the car, as well as a new rear spoiler and diffusor, increasing the downforce.
The brake system has undergone substantial modifications. Most visible are the 371 millimetre ventilated front discs and six-piston Brembo calipers, guaranteeing a high level of braking performance.
Upgrades include modifications made to increase rigidity of the chassis to cater for the 80% stiffer springs relative to the standard S60 R-Design. These changes combined with the tailored, high performance Öhlins shock absorbers and 20” Polestar wheels results in a precise, yet comfortable, driving experience.
The six-speed automatic gearbox features a new paddle shift system that together with the Polestar developed Haldex four-wheel drive system takes the car from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds and to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The gearbox as well as the four-wheel drive system and traction control system has been recalibrated in order to provide an active driving experience and maximum grip in all situations.
The new 20” bespoke Polestar rims, equipped with 245/325R20 tyres, are a vital part of the car, maximizing the grip level and adding to the sporty looks.
The six-cylinder turbo-charged T6 engine breathes through a 2.5” stainless steel exhaust system, making for a throaty engine note.
The interior has been reworked with new details, materials and Polestar colours, such as the steering wheel, seats and the pedals, with the sole purpose of increasing driver support and control.
The Polestar designed seats features a blend of black Nubuck textile and perforated leather with Polestar blue threading. The seats are designed to provide the driver with best possible support for active driving and at the same time long-journey comfort.
