Later this week, Volvo Cars and Polestar will go into their 15th consecutive motorsport season in the Swedish Touring Car Championship. But before the two exit the pit for the weekend, they will present an ultimate Volvo for the street.
“Main objective with the Volvo C30 Polestar Performance Concept Prototype is to explore what happens when racing engineers and designers get free hands to build a street car without any limitations set by a specific racing regulation,” Volvo said in a statement.
The Volvo C30 Polestar Performance Concept is aimed to show what happens when engineers build further on the already strong driving characteristic of the standard C30 and illustrate the link between the racing cars and the Polestar Performance products.
Power for the Volvo C30 Polestar Performance Concept comes from a 2.5L turbo engine with a large intercooler, KKK 26 turbo, modified pistons, conrods and inlet camshaft. That allows for a total of 405-hp and a peak torque of 376 lb-ft.
