Polestar Volvo is now the official sports division in the manner of a Motorsport BMW or AMG for Mercedes. The Swedes have already worked on the S60 and V60 with cars for the flattering presentation and interesting performances, but the 350 hp are certainly some “limitations” to go tickle the German competition which easily passes the 400 hp in this segment.
Waiting to see these ultra-powerful versions on the roads, Volvo already offers “Performance Pack” for its V90 and S90 models, which offer a slight horsepower increase. For example, to D5 version, the 2.0-liter diesel unit 4-cylinder gains 5 hp and 20 Nm of additional torque. Volvo thus goes to 240 hp and 500 Nm.
Performance should also change slightly. Swedish cars should perform the 0 to 100 km / h in 7 seconds to a maximum speed of 240 km / h.
Polestar is somewhat during the Swedish AMG Mercedes or BMW M. The preparer is already interested in the S60 and V60 powers that display 367 horses, but it could go tickle the German on the upper segment.
If one believes Motor Trend, Polestar leave a modest block 2l four-cylinder petrol would be pushed to 400 horsepower. And to reach an output of 600 horsepower, the official trainer would use hybrid technology with the addition of an electric motor.
