The Volvo S60 Polestar has now become even more accessible thanks to a
downward price realignment.
Following the on-track success of Scott McLaughlin and the Volvo Polestar Racing team in the V8 Supercars
Championship, Volvo’s most potent road car is now available from $99,950*.
“Interest in the S60 nameplate has increased significantly since the start of our V8 Supercars Championship
programme, and as Polestar’s test market we are delighted to be at the forefront of Polestar’s global development in
motor sport and high-performance road cars,” said Matt Braid, Volvo Car Australia Managing Director.
“We are fully committed to the S60 Polestar and said at the very start of this journey that we would listen
carefully to feedback in order to make this car a success and capitalise on our V8 Supercars programme.”
“So while the first S60 Polestar was incredibly well-received, we haven’t rested on our laurels. Instead, we’ve
made improvements to the brakes, gearbox and seats.”

“Like every manufacturer, we also closely monitor our competitive set, so in respect of recent adjustments made
elsewhere, we’ve reduced the Manufacturer’s List Price of the S60 Polestar down to $99,950*.”
To recap, improvements to the updated Volvo S60 Polestar are wide-ranging. The six-cylinder turbo-charged T6 engine
has been optimised by Polestar with a bigger turbo, new intercooler, revised engine mapping and racing exhaust to
produce 257kW and 500Nm.
The six-speed automatic gearbox has also been Polestar-optimised, which means quick-shift gearchanges via the new
gearshift paddles. In conjunction with the launch control – and Polestar-optimised Haldex AWD system – the S60 Polestar
will accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in just 4.9 seconds, and on to a limited top speed of 250km/h.
Chassis upgrades include modifications to increase the rigidity of the chassis, with 80 per cent stiffer springs
relative to a standard S60 T6 R-Design. These changes combined, with the tailored high-performance Öhlins shock absorbers
and 19” Polestar graphite alloy wheels result in a precise, yet comfortable, ride.
The brake system has also undergone modifications for this latest incarnation. The S60 Polestar now boasts six-piston
Brembo callipers, 370mm ventilated floating discs with high performance pads front and rear, providing superior braking
performance with no fade.
To reflect the increased performance of the S60 Polestar, positive aerodynamic effects have been achieved through
subtle, yet efficient, modifications based on data from tests in the Volvo Cars wind tunnel. The changes are visible with
the front splitters, optimising the airflow underneath the car, as well as a new rear spoiler and diffuser, increasing
