Volvo’s New S60 to Get the Polestar Engineered Treatment

Polestar Engineered parts for Volvo 60-series models

Called Polestar Engineered, and designed specifically for Volvo's new 60 series T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrids, the new parts are essentially Gothenburg's answer to BMW's M-Sport line or Mercedes' AMG-line. That's an increase of 11kW and 30Nm over the standard 298kW/640Nm T8 Twin Engine setup. In addition, Brembo brake calipers are now fitted, the pads are upgraded and the wheels are lighter. Volvo says the Polestar Engineered tune actually improves fuel consumption and "refines the automatic gear selection".

The announcement comes one week before the company will reveal its new S60 premium sports sedan at the inauguration of its first USA manufacturing plant in Charleston, South Carolina.

Chassis mods include Polestar Engineered multi-link front- and rear-suspensions, featuring Ohlins shocks with dual-flow valves that allow stiffened springs and shocks with no affect on ride quality.

‘Minecraft: Story Mode’ will become a Netflix 'interactive story'
If you've seen programs like Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale , you might already be familiar with how this will go down. That said, it now sounds even simpler than that.

Suspension tweaks include the addition of Öhlins shock absorbers with dual-flow valves, as well as the adoption of strut bar and adjustable shock absorber designs from the Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid performance vehicle. A new strut bar and the adjustable shock absorber design are brought over from the larger Polestar 1 coupe. But don't forget, Polestar isn't a new thing - prior to its spinoff as a standalone brand, the Swedish tuning arm has been responsible for some of the most entertaining Volvo cars to date. These cars are identified by their gold-painted brake calipers and seat belts, with other changes being lightweight wheels, Polestar emblems and black chrome exhaust pipes.

"The new S60 T8 Polestar Engineered is an electrified auto that does what you want it to", said Henrik Green, senior vice president of research and development at Volvo Cars. Seatbelt straps are gold, too, and the auto comes with Polestar emblems and black chrome exhaust pipes. "All components have been fine-tuned to work together, delivering a responsive and exciting drivers' auto".
