Lots of pretty exciting things have been happening in Sweden thanks to the recent partnership between Polestar and Volvo. The latest development comes with a teaser for the duo’s new line of Polestar Performance Parts for the S60, V60, V40, and XC60 models in Europe…for now, we hope.
Should you own any of the models previously mentioned, Polestar has a nice laundry list of additions you can add to your Swedish lunch-box on wheels to make it even cooler.
Accessories range from chassis reinforcement, such as thicker anti-roll bars or strut-mount bars or even suspension bits, upgraded wheels, visual interior and exterior upgrades, and even full exhausts systems. All the sorts of things you’d add, for example to your S60, if you couldn’t swing buying the full-fledged Polestar model.
All the parts are heavily inspired from Polestar’s motorsports programs, meaning you can even order your Volvo with the same Cyan Racing blue as the company’s signature models. So basically, Polestar’s just further establishing themselves as Volvo’s performance sub-brand, similarly to BMW’s M Division.
Full details can be found on their accessories page, which you can see here.
No word on whether or not these same parts will be available for US-spec models. But we’re hoping and thinking they will because Volvo’s Polestar initiative isn’t just for the European lot. Us Americans are included as well.
All the more reason to welcome them, since we’ve seriously been missing out on some hot Volvo’s since the age of the R models.
