Volvo S60 / V60 Polestar now more aerodynamically focused


Extensively revised in October last year with a switch from six to four-cylinders, Volvo Cars South Africa has now introduced a new aerodynamics package for the S60 / V60 Polestar, claimed to produce up to 30% more downforce.

Limited to just 1 500 vehicles with only 23 coming to South Africa, only one of which will be a V60, the aero tweaks, co-developed with the brand's Cyan Racing division, consist of a new front splitter, side sills and boot spoiler made from lightweight carbon fibre, gloss black diamond cut Polestar alloy wheels, carbon fibre mirror casings, adjustable Öhlins shocks, six-piston Brembo brake calipers and a new colour option called Bursting Blue Metallic.

Inside, the sole revision to the interior comes in the form of new seat upholstery with contrasting blue stitching.

Underneath the bonnet, both models remain unchanged with the super-and-turbocharged 2.0-litre Drive-E engine again producing 270 kW and 470 Nm, connected to a eight-speed Geartronic gearbox with drive going to all four wheels. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h with the S60 able to reach 100 km/h from standstill in a claimed 4.7 seconds.

No pricing has yet been announced.
