Riding the Prototype Volvo S60 Polestar with Thed Björk


 

I attended, on June 22nd, a special event with Volvo in Kfardebian.

They had brought to Lebanon the Prototype Volvo S60 with the swedish racing driver Thed Björk, and we got the chance to ride the wonderful car as if we were in a real racing track.

The vehicle was developed by Volvo Cars Official Motorsports and its racing and tuning partner Polestar for an as of yet unnamed client.

The main focus when developing the car has been to combine a comfortable genuine Volvo driving experience with a high level of power and handling. The Volvo T6 engine has been tuned to deliver a considerable increase in power and torque. This, in combination with a lowered, widened and reinforced chassis together with a tuned Haldex all-wheel drive system and Öhlins suspension makes the car suitable for both high performance driving and long distance travelling.

There was also all the Volvo family, we took a close look on all of them and we got to test drive the car of our choice, we tested the C30 😉

It was a really amazing experience, I can’t describe the feeling inside the Polestar and how Thed was driving, especially on the turnovers, it was a really amazing feeling!

The C30, was also really smooth, we went for a drive in the neighborhood, it sure is a small car, but it has all the functions of a big car
