Volvo S60 Polestar concept coming to Los Angeles

Volvo has announced plans to stage the global auto show debut of the S60 Polestar concept in Los Angeles.

Volvo has announced plans to stage the global auto show debut of the S60 Polestar concept in Los Angeles.

Originally introduced in June, the super Swede features a conservative body kit, a sport-tuned suspension and 19-inch Polestar alloy wheels. There's also larger anti-roll bars, Öhlins shock absorbers and high-performance brakes.

Power is provided by a six-cylinder engine that has been equipped with a Garret 3171 turbocharger, a new cylinder head, modified combustion chambers, an upgraded air intake and a Ferrita stainless steel exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications, the engine develops 508 bhp (379 kW) and 575 Nm (424 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 300 km/h (186 mph).

Volvo was coy about the car's production chances, but previous reports have indicated the company is considering it.
