Volvo C30 Performance Concept Polestar (Foto Ufficiali)


Recommended Posts

Ritorna il tuner storico Polestar a metter mani su Volvo.

Ai più non dirà nulla questo nome, ma questo signore, assieme ad HEICO Sportiv ha messo mano alle temibili 240 e 850 STCC che hanno bastonato BMW, Ford et simila nei loro campionati turismo.

Detto questo:


Polestar Performance, the team behind Volvo's championship-winning Swedish Touring Car Team, has announced their first complete road car project – the C30 Performance Concept Prototype.

Developing 400PS and transferring the power to the road via an all-wheel-drive system, the C30 Performance Concept Prototype was designed to evaluate what happens when a Championship-winning team of race engineers and designers get free-reign to design and engineer a car rather than developing it to fit very specific race regulations.

"We love the Volvo C30 - it's a great car with huge potential for development with its low weight and low centre of gravity. It's also a fantastic road car. But now we go much further by combining the road car with cutting edge racing technology," says Robert Dahlgren, race and development driver at Polestar.

"It's particularly inspiring to develop this specific C30. This car is built just in the way we want to do it. Polestar has probably spent more time than anyone else in the world to get speed out of the C30, and this time we can realize ideas without being halted by specific race regulations," says Jan Andersson, technical director at Polestar Racing.

The concept includes a 400 PS-engine, all-wheel-drive, and aerodynamics based on Polestar's race car data. Further updates on the project, including the announcement of technical specifications, will be posted on the company's web site www.polestar.se. The first public appearance of the C30 Performance Concept Prototype will be at Gothenburg Motor Show between 22-25 April.

Ignoro se il propulsore sia il 2.5 Turbo o il nuovo 2.0 litri turbo ad iniezione diretta di benzina.

Fatto sta che avrà 400Cv e la trazione sulle quattro ruote

Polestar Performance, the team behind Volvo's entry into the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC), has released the first image of the C30 Performance Concept.

Set to debut at the Gothenburg Motor Show, the concept aims to "...build further on the strong driving characteristics of the standard C30 and at the same time illustrate the link between the racing cars and the Polestar Performance products."

To do this, Polestar added a larger intercooler and a KKK 26 turbocharger to the 2.5-liter T5 engine. Thanks to these modifications, power climbs from 227 hp (169 kW / 230 PS) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) to 405 hp (302 kW / 411 PS) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque.

Other goodies include an aerodynamic body kit, a Haldex AWD system, Öhlins shock absorbers and springs, Brembo brakes, and 19-inch BBS wheels outfitted with Pirelli P Zero tires.

Volvo C30 Polestar Performance Concept Prototype

Premiere for concept car from Volvo Cars' official Racing and Performance Partner

This weekend Volvo Cars and Polestar enter their fifteenth consecutive motorsport season in the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC) as reigning champions. But even before the racing cars exit the pit for the weekends' first practice session, Polestar now present the ultimate Volvo car 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.

Polestar has a long and successful competition history with Volvo, racing with 850, S40, and S60. In 2009, Polestar won the STCC for Volvo Cars with the C30, a car they developed completely from scratch.

The close relationship between Polestar and Volvo Cars in testing and development has lead up to Polestar receiving the responsibility to develop Polestar Performance Engine Optimization Products as a complement to Volvos standard cars.

These products are sold through Volvos dealers on several markets and are the only engine optimizations for Volvo cars covered by Volvos original warranty and where the certified fuel consumption and emissions remain unchanged.

With the Volvo C30 Polestar Concept Prototype, Polestar aimed to build further on the strong driving characteristics of the standard C30 and at the same time illustrate the link between the racing cars and the Polestar Performance products.

The car is based on Polestars unique experience from developing the Volvo C30 into a winning race car. The interior and exterior design reflects Polestars know-how on the C30's aerodynamic and driving properties derived through several years of development and testing - from computer simulations, to wind tunnel and race track testing.

The car will premiere for the public at Gothenburg Motor show April 22-25.
