2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Reviews, Specs, Engine, Release Date – Reserve any Scandinavian or language held on purpose? Unlike most manufacturers who are not lacking to communicate the times made by their models on the North loop of the famous German circuit, Volvo has for its part kept secret since last year the Chrono realized by its S60 Polestar Until today
It is through the division dedicated to the most sporting variations of Volvo that we learn today that the very powerful 2019 Volvo S60 Polestar has, now a year ago, put its gums on the ring in order to submit to the hard verdict of the stopwatch. But until then, the Swedish builder had kept secret the time of the hottest version of the range.
Following the German round of the 2016 World Touring Car Championship, Cyan Racing (formerly Polestar Racing before the sale of its Volvo preparation Department) led to the Nordschleife what it qualifies as ‘ secret tests ‘. The goal of the team is to determine how to improve (if still needed) the performance of the S60 Polestar by using its experience gained in the competition.
During these tests, the stable decided to take advantage of it to establish a new record on the ring in the category of four-door production cars. The result? A time of 7 minutes, 51 seconds and 11 tenths, is actually a new record for the category
Then, of course, Porsche with its turbo Paname (7 minutes and 38 seconds), then Alfa Romeo with SA Giulia Quadrifoglio (7 minutes and 32 seconds) beat the Polestar in the months that followed, but this time remains remarkable nonetheless.
Even more so when one takes into account that the German and the Italian can rely on a cavalry exceeding the 500 horses (respectively 550 and 510 to be more precise) when the Swedish only has ‘ 367 Equidae ‘. Transmitted to the ground, it is true, by an automatic eight-speed gearbox and an integral transmission.
If we already know that the next generation of 2019 Volvo S60 Polestar is scheduled for next year, and that in all likelihood the new model will be entitled to its Polestar clawed declination, one can expect to see new records falling in the region of Ahrweiler, especially with the strong T8 engine of 407 horses already equipping the XC60 if it is taken up as is. And even after 2019 if, once again, the Swedes trying to remain silent on the prowess of their turbulent sedan. Or break in the case of V60.
