Cologne, 28. August 2017

When Volvo flew mid-class athletes S60/V60 Polestar so far quite successfully past them, then it is most probably not up to you. Only 1,500 units of the Audi S4 competitors, it has provided for Europe, just 150 of them to land in Germany. In addition, the 60s-model series has been a long time, many customers are eagerly waiting for the successor to start in 2018. All the more surprising, therefore, that the Swedes have now developed a fix for the 2018er Vintage of their limited-edition Performance model.

More Carbon, more downforce

The crux of the matter is a new Carbon fiber aerodynamics package, developed by Polestar together with Motorsport Partner, Cyan Racing. It is a front splitter, side skirts and rear spoiler (roof spoiler on the wagon V60), to increase the downforce by 30 percent. Volvo promises to improve the Performance and handling.

According to the Scandinavians, the modifications resulting from the experience in the world touring car championship, where Cyan Racing is currently fighting with a S60 to the title. Tested the new components on the Nordschleife. Interestingly, in the last year, we noted during the test drives a new Nordschleife record for sedans. The time of 7:51 minutes kept secret. In the meantime, the S60 would be going on the record anyway. Alfa Romeo went with the 510 HP strong Giulia Quadrifoglio in September 2016 7:32 minutes.
