|Polestar celebrates winning the WTCC ( World Touring Car Championship) with Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance WTCC Champion Editions|
Last week, Polestar Cyan Racing won the WTCC in a Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 race car, and the team’s Thed Bjork secured the Driver’s Championship, the first Swede ever to win a motor racing title. To commemorate, Polestar unveiled the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance Champion Edition to celebrate Cyan Racing’s win.
“The engineers from Polestar and Cyan Racing have worked collaboratively on engineering developments for existing Polestar road cars for many years. It’s therefore fitting that we celebrate the remarkable achievement of securing our maiden WTCC Championship by adding more performance to the cars that have been instrumental this season. With the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance Champion Editions, we’ve created an accessible piece of history for many Volvo car owners,” said Christian Samson, responsible for Product and Development at Polestar.
The Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance Champion Editions are available on all D4, D5, T5 and T6 models and include all available enhancements offered by the Polestar Performance Parts program, being the 19” bespoke Polestar light alloy wheels plus performance-focused tyres, a free-flow stainless-steel exhaust system and sports air filter as well as uprated suspension dampers and springs. Visually, the car is differentiated internally thanks to interior highlights such as the Polestar gear lever, and exterior details such as a rear diffusor and rear spoiler.
All cars also receive the Polestar powertrain optimization that increases power by up to 10hp and 50Nm of torque, as well as delivering faster gearshifts and improved throttle response.
The Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Performance Champion Editions are available from any Polestar retailer globally, where the Performance Parts can be fitted to new or pre-owned cars.
