Following in the footsteps of luxury rivals such as Mercedes-Benz with its AMG line and BMW with its M-Series, Volvo is rolling out the quickest factory Volvos ever. But the Swedish says it is taking a different approach with the V60 and S60 Polestar models, describing them as “all weather, all seasons” performance cars.
Production of the unique Polestar cars will be limited. Only 120 of the V60 sportswagon and S60 sedan will be available in the U.S., according to representatives from Volvo and Polestar.
While Polestar has been transforming Volvo products into track models since 1996 and producing performance parts for various models over the years, this will be the first time specific models will carry the Polestar designation, Tony Nicolosi, Volvo USA chief executive officer, said after the Volvo press conference at the Chicago Auto Show.
