With Polestar kit, the D5 engine takes a horse handle to move from 235 to 240 horsepower, while torque increases from 480 Nm to 500 Nm. On the 0 to 100 km / h and S90 sedan, this translates a tenth of won from 7 seconds to 6.9 seconds. All for consumption which remain strictly identical!
According to Volvo, this package has been realized in close collaboration with engineers and pilots of the Polestar Racing Cyan. “It’s very exciting to use technology to our race car and transpose our road cars,” says Björk Thd, a pilot S60 Polestar WTCC TC1. “We created a balanced package that delivers performance in all conditions, whether to win a race or driving dynamically on your favorite routes.”
They are not yet on our streets that Volvo premium news, S90 and V90, respectively sedan and wagon, have already passed into the hands of the athletic department belonging to the Swedish manufacturer, Polestar. It is no unfortunately not yet here S90 and V90 Polestar itself, those on which the rumor of a power of 600 horses short for several days. No, we are talking about the Polestar Performance Optimization kit, as the XC90 last year.
And against all odds, it starts with mechanical optimizations such as better throttle response, passages of more accurate and faster speeds on the affected engines, namely diesel D5 and T6 petrol.
