The old Nürburgring, of which we have already told all their story in this other article, has a role very different from its origins. The track German, in addition to hosting a multitude of competitions of motorsport, and days of entrance to trail individuals, it has become a showcase for brands and their most athletic models. The fight for the C-segment front-wheel-drive faster it is epic, but they are not the only ones.
Supercars, sports more affordable and sport versions of sedans are also looking for travelling more than 20 kilometres of the route in less time than their rivals. With this they are able to attract more audience by saying “I am faster than the other car that you are thinking of buying in the most difficult circuit on the planet”. The Volvo S60 Polestar has been the last to go through the Nürburgring and fight against the clock.
The time of his return on the track in the German show in this video in which, by the way, don’t go all the way around, but small fragments of the same. We will have to trust what it tells us the brand. The case is that the time supposedly achieved by the Volvo S60 Polestar is 7 minutes, 51 seconds and 11 hundredths; 7:51:11. Surprising that such a test has been published now, as they claim that the evidence were made almost a year.
This will be placed in the first position of the table of sedans to date when you conducted those tests. In this way, it was ahead (a second) car such as the BMW M3, but then came the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and snatched that first place. We recall that the Volvo S60 Polestar used engine 2.0 supercharged that generates 367 HP and 470 Nm, which are then sent to the asphalt through all four wheels. In any case, the difference in power with the aforementioned M3 (431 HP), give even more merit to the Swedish.
