Volvo and Polestar Come Together To Set Hearts Racing

Written by:

They're finally coming. Built from the DNA of Volvo's S60 Polestar Concept, the S60 and V60 Polestar Limited Editions are finally arriving in the United States – including, of course, Cherry Hill Volvo – next summer.

Sports car and luxury car enthusiasts alike have been salivating at the Polestar Concept since its introduction in 2012. An overhaul of the standard S60, the Polestar Concept puts out a ridiculous 508 horsepower and can reach 186 mph (don't try this at home, kids). The new S60 and V60 Polestars have been scaled down – they put out a more street-reasonable 345 horses from their turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 engines – but they still go from zero to 60 in less than five seconds and have had their interiors (as well as the chassis, gearbox, all-wheel-drive system and more) revamped by the speed geniuses at Polestar.

What, those non-enthusiasts among you may be wondering, is Polestar, exactly? Well, Polestar is Volvo's official racing team and performance partner, and these Swedish racing devotees crafted a concept car to make your heart melt – not to mention Jay Leno's – then scaled it down just a bit for production to make it one of the fastest, coolest cars on the road. And with its small production run and distinctive looks, Polestar Limited Edition owners will be a rare breed on the road – just as they are off it.

Speed lovers will be interested to learn that the Polestar Concept smoked the BMW M3 and Audi RS4 in road tests – and it looks pretty darn good in the snow, too. Meanwhile, the S60 and V60 Polestar Limited Editions are Volvo's answer to the European sports car industry. More luxurious than an M3, more powerful than an Audi S4, and far more affordable than a Mercedes AMG 63, the S60 and V60 Polestars add unprecedented off-the-line speed to the safety, handling and luxury on which Volvo's built its reputation.

It's this combination of power and feeling that made Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman write that "Volvo's skunkworks team has pulled off something of a sporty yet elegant miracle."

While the S60 Polestar Concept was only produced in a run of about 10 cars, the S60 and V60 Polestar Limited Editions will be produced in enough quantity that you can roll on down to Cherry Hill Volvo next summer and pick one up. Just a few minutes over the Ben Franklin Bridge from Philadelphia, Cherry Hill Volvo has a car for everyone – whether you want functionality, comfort safety, excitement or all of the above – at great prices from a Volvo dealership with a team that's ready to help you choose from a wide selection of cars that offer an engaging road experience while dominating the safety ratings.
