Polestar has unveiled the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance World Champion Edition to celebrate Polestar Cyan Racing’s win. Available on all D4, D5, T5 and T6, each model includes the following Polestar Performance enhancements:

  • 19” bespoke Polestar light alloy wheels
  • Performance-focused tyres,
  • Free-flow stainless-steel exhaust system
  • Sports air filter
  • Upgraded suspension dampers and springs.

Visually, the car is differentiated internally thanks to interior highlights such as the Polestar gear lever, and exterior details such as a rear diffusor and rear spoiler - Additionally, all cars also receive the Polestar powertrain optimisation that increases power by up to 10hp and 50Nm of torque, as well as delivering faster gearshifts and improved throttle response

“The engineers from Polestar and Cyan Racing have worked collaboratively on engineering developments for existing Polestar road cars for many years. It’s therefore fitting that we celebrate the remarkable achievement of securing our maiden World Championship by adding more performance to the cars that have been instrumental this season.”

“With the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance World Champion Editions, we’ve created an accessible piece of history for many Volvo car owners,”

Christian Samson, responsible for Product and Development at Polestar.

What is Polestar?

Since October 2017, Polestar has been a new separately-branded electric performance car company which offers a range of bespoke Polestar cars. It is Volvo Car Group’s performance road car brand. Polestar will experience specific technological and engineering synergies with Volvo cars and will have the advantage of significant economies of scale as a result of its connection to Volvo. As a result, this will allow it to design, develop and build world beating electrified high performance cars much faster than other new entrants into the market.
