Volvo Joining V8 Supercars Series with 2013 S60 Polestar Sedan

June 13th, 2013

Volvo S60 Race Car Joining Australia V8 Supercar Series

This post has been categorized under “Sports Car” and “Volvo”, which is a first for us here at Pricing Insider. The news comes as Volvo is all set to announce its factory-backed participation in Australia’s V8 Supercars Series, using the high-performance new 2013 S60 Polestar as a base car.

The Supercars Series (watch it on SPEED Channel!) brings some of the most exciting high-powered production-based auto racing in the world, where rules mandate rear-wheel drive, 5.0-liter V8 engines with in excess of 600 horsepower, and plenty of nose-to-tail action. Traditionally the proving grounds for Ford and Holden (GM’s Australian division), the series will expand this year to also include entries from Mercedes-Benz and Nissan.

2013 Volvo S60 Polestar Production Version

The production S60 Polestar, shown above, is not available to U.S. consumers, though rumors persist that Volvo will eventually bring the BMW M3/M5 challenger to these shores. Want Volvo safety with sport sedan performance? The 2013 S60 T6 R-Design is quite the potent vehicle in its own right, with 250 horsepower and a sport-tuned AWD system. Pricing for the R-Design, available now, starts at $36,100.
