Volvo and Polestar have announced plans to offer an assortment of performance parts for the V40, V60, S60, and XC60.

Designed to increase performance and handling, the Polestar Performance Parts range will consist of interior and exterior styling tweaks, chassis components, and sports exhaust systems.  The companies were tight-lipped on specifics but the images suggest owners will be able to buy sport springs, black mirror caps, rear spoilers, and special alloy wheels.  Customers can also expect to see alloy pedals, special sill plates, and a Polestar-branded shifter.

Polestar says the components were developed using knowledge gained from 20 years of motorsports. As Polestar Research and Development Director Henrik Fries explained, "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."

The components have been jointly tested and developed with Volvo so the accessories will not void the factory warranty on new models.

Polestar Performance Parts will be available at participating Volvo dealerships in April and details as well as pricing will be announced closer to launch.
