The new Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 is an exceptional racing vehicle that is designed to bring together supercharged performance, lightweight structure and eye-catching design -- but its most important function is to enable the Swedish automaker to put in a top-notch performance at the upcoming 2016 World Touring Car Championship.

This particular vehicle is powered by a 1.6-liter, four cylinder Drive-E engine that is capable of pumping out up to 400 horsepower. In addition to the engine, another factor that enables the new Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 to sprint so quickly is the fact that is very lightweight, weighing in as it does at only around 1,100 kg. The lightweight nature of the car is thanks to the liberal use of carbon fiber.

Ultimately, the new Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 is a lightweight and reliable car designed for competitive use.
