Swedish automaker together with his court studio Polestar thought about the release of “charged” version of the hatchback V40, which will be on the step below the sedan S60 Polestar charged in the family Volvo models and will be able to try to bring rustling in the segment of super-hot hatch.
It is worth noting that a similar idea Volvo bears is not the first year in 2010, it was introduced 415-hp three-door hatchback C30 Polestar, but then did not get a prototype: the project became a demonstration of the fruitful cooperation automaker and minders “North Star.”
But this time, it seems, seriously Swedes seized on the idea of creating the serial car. The head of the British division of Volvo Nick Connor told the newspaper Top Gear, the demand for this type of vehicles is obvious, and Volvo simply can not afford to stand aside, and taking into account their material resources and experience to create a model Polestar – only a matter of time.
Moreover, already have appeared that attempt at writing will take place next year. According to some reports, in the hatchback V40 Polestar variation will receive a new 2-liter turbo engine family Drive-E output of 300 horsepower and all-wheel drive system on the clutch Haldex. Thus, V40 Polestar is on the territory of such monsters as the Ford Focus RS and Volkswagen Golf R.
This model will not be such a rare and exclusive as its big brother S60 – let it be a mass.
