That may not be as much as the 508-horsepower concept version, but it is enough to drop the 0-62 time from 5.8 seconds down to 4.9. Top speed, however, remains limited to 155 mph. Power is channeled through a recalibrated six-speed automatic with launch control and a retuned, rear-biased Haldex all-wheel drive system.
The S60 Polestar also packs a new aero kit (complete with front splitter, rear wing and diffuser, all fine-tuned in Volvo’s own wind tunnel), plus Ohlins dampers, upgraded brakes and rolling stock and a returned chassis. Unfortunately the S60 Polestar is, for the time being, limited exclusively to the Australian market.
