Want your Volvo to handle better? There are coil springs, shocks, and strut bars – not to mention upgraded wheels. A sportier look and improved aero? You can specify new side sills, spoilers, and diffuser. An upgraded feel to the cabin? Check out the gear knob, pedals, and door sill plates. Of course if you want it all, Polestar will hook you up with the complete package.
The Swedish automaker and its performance division are starting with the 60 series: the S60 sedan, V60 wagon, and XC60 crossover (as well as the V40 hatchback we don't get here). Similar upgrades are in store for the new 90 series as well, including the flagship S90 sedan, V90 wagon, and XC90 crossover. And because "all Polestar Performance Parts are developed and tested together with Volvo Cars to the same high standards as all other products," they promise "a perfect fit and finish, with no impact on the Volvo factory warranty." We're waiting for word on pricing and availability for the US market, so watch this space.
Polestar introduces a whole new line of high-performance products in the form of Polestar Performance Parts, offering even more driving pleasure to Volvo drivers.
Polestar Performance Parts offers a wide range of extensively developed enhancements for the Volvo S60, V60, V40 and XC60 models to begin with, including chassis parts, wheels, exhaust, interior and exterior details and more.
"We have received strong feedback over a long period of time from customers all over the world regarding Polestar Performance Parts. We are delighted to be able to meet the demand, starting from today. This is a product improving on the already strong base of Volvo cars in terms of performance, handling and driving pleasure," said Niels Möller, Chief Operating Officer of Polestar.
All Polestar Performance Parts are designed under the philosophy "Made to Perform", fully utilising the 20-year motorsport experience of the engineers and racing drivers from Polestar and its motorsport partner Cyan Racing.
"What we learned on the racing circuits with our colleagues at Cyan Racing is that championships are not won in a single lap. The secret of our success on the tracks is in creating balanced and precise cars that are predictable for the driver to control in all situations. Lessons learned on the tracks are transferred directly into the development of our road cars and performance products. The new range of Polestar Performance Parts is no exception, they are designed and developed with the very same philosophy," said Henrik Fries, R&D Director of Polestar.
The Polestar Performance Parts can be purchased as a Complete Package, including chassis parts, rims and tyres, intake and exhaust, as well as exterior and interior parts. All of these components will together create a more compelling driving experience, especially in combination with the Polestar Performance Optimisation and can be bought in separate packages as well.
All Polestar Performance Parts are developed and tested together with Volvo Cars to the same high standards as all other products. This process ensures a perfect fit and finish, with no impact on the Volvo factory warranty and most importantly increasing driving pleasure.
Further Volvo models will be included in the Polestar Performance Parts range in due course.
