Volvo Car Australia has launched a limited edition version of the S60
Performance Project concept.
Branded the Volvo S60 Polestar, just 50 units will be available to Australian buyers.
The Volvo S60 Polestar is based on Volvo’s S60 T6 R-Design and is the result of close collaboration between Volvo Car
Australia and its performance partners, Polestar and Heico Sportiv.
The engine software upgrade comes from Volvo's motor sport partner, Polestar, which has most recently raced the Volvo
C30 in the Swedish Touring Car Championships.
The S60 Polestar has 242 kW of power and 480 Nm of torque, an increase of 18 kW and 40 Nm respectively over the
standard S60 T6 R-Design. The result is a 0-100 km/h dash in 5.8 seconds (up from 6.1 seconds).
Despite the increased performance, the S60 Polestar has the same fuel economy (10.2 l/100km) and CO2 emissions (243
g/km) as the Volvo S60 T6 R-Design.

Tuning company, Heico Sportiv, provided the exclusive 19-inch diamond cut alloy wheels in addition to its performance
quad-exhaust system and bespoke rear air diffuser, both designed to further accentuate the S60 Polestar’s exhaust note.
Each car will be individually numbered with a limited edition plaque.
Compared to the chassis offered across Volvo’s S60 range, the S60 Polestar shares the S60 R-Design’s sports
suspension, which includes monotube damping at the rear, 15 per cent stiffer springs and 20 per cent stiffer bushings.
The ride height is lowered by 15 mm.
The S60 Polestar features sports seats with firmer side bolstering, leather clad three spoke steering wheel, dials
with blue surrounds and aluminium ridged pedals.
Volvo's full three-year unlimited km warranty applies to all S60 Polestar models.
