Volvo will return to 2016 WTCC next year with two S60 Polestar race cars. Aim to claim back their victory in 1985 with Volvo 240, Volvo hope the S60 Polestar able to repeat their success 30 years later.
“We have chosen the FIA WTCC as our global motorsport platform as it combines the cutting edge technology of our Volvo cars with exciting racing all over the world. The championship enables us to further develop our technology and utilise development from the racing circuits directly to our products for performance oriented Volvo customers” – Niels Möller, COO of Polestar
The team will be known as Polestar Cyan Racing and they have fully prepared the 4-cylinder turbo engine and squeeze as much as 400 horsepower from the Volvo’s Drive-E engine.
