*NOW UPDATED WITH VIDEO* Volvo has unveiled a new 367bhp version of its V60 Polestar – said to be the quickest car the Swedish manufacturer has ever produced.[Not a valid template]
Volvo has unveiled a new version of the Polestar V60 estate, which now kicks out 367bhp.
Powered by a four-cylinder Drive-E engine, the two-litre twin-turbocharged unit produces 367bhp and 346lb ft of torque in the new V60 Polestar, an increase of 22bhp thanks to a bigger turbo, new conrods, new camshafts, a larger air intake and a higher-capacity fuel pump. Consequently the new V60 can reach 0-100kph in 4.8 seconds and boasts an electronically-limited top speed of 250kph. The new Polestar also features BorgWarner four-wheel-drive system and the new Polestar-optimised eight-speed Geartronic automatic gearbox.
On top of this new performance-optimised setup, Polestar has radically reduced the car’s weight, slicing 24kg lighter over the front axle alone, making the newboy 20kg lighter in total compared with its predecessor. Other new features on the car include new 20in lightweight alloy wheels, Polestar-calibrated electro-assisted power steering and new slotted front brake discs measuring 371mm.
Prices for the new V60 Polestar have yet to be announced.
