Volvo’s Polestar division is best known for turning the Swedish brand’s ordinary luxury cars into high power sports car-rivalling machines. Their latest creation is the new 367bhp Polestar V60 estate. Powered by a specially enhanced version of Volvo’s new four-cylinder petrol engine, this new model is set to go on sale in a number of markets across the world.

The engine is fitted with a bigger turbo, new conrods, new camshafts, a larger air intake and a higher-capacity fuel pump to develop 367bhp. All that work allows it to propel this family estate from zero to 100kmph in 4.8 seconds and onto a top speed of 250kmph.

Like all fast Volvos, the Polestar V60 puts its power down via a four-wheel-drive system. Linked to it is a Polestar-optimised 8-speed automatic gearbox. On top of this new performance-optimised equipment, Polestar has reduced the car’s weight. In fact, the car is 24 kilos lighter over the front axle and 20 kilos lighter in total compared with the previous version. Other new features on the car include 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels, Polestar-calibrated electro-assisted power steering and a new slotted front brake disc of 371millimetres.

Prices for the new V60 Polestar will be announced at a later stage, with first deliveries expected starting October. The car also marks the globalisation of the Polestar brand. The first road-legal Polestar cars were launched in 2014 to limited markets. Now though, Polestar has announced that it is expanding the number of markets from 13 to 47, and doubling production volume from 750 cars a year to up to 1500.
