Volvo may not be the first name you'd think of in racing, but it stands as a dominant force in European touring cars. Before stepping up to the World Touring Car Championship last year, Volvo and its partner Polestar Racing had come to dominate the Swedish Touring Car Championship. While that series has since expanded to all of Scandinavia, Volvo made other plans in switching over to the TTA Racing Elite League. And this is the car with which it will be contesting the new series.
Rather than field the same C30 touring car which Volvo and Polestar had fielded in the STCC and WTCC, the TTA racer revealed here is based (or at least looks like) the S60 sedan. Under that carbon fiber body sits a 420-horsepower V6 driving the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox and Boosted by a similar KERS regenerative braking system as employed in Formula One.
The livery has yet to be finalized, so for now Polestar has decked the S60 TTA out in the same shade of baby blue that makes its other touring cars, that 450-horsepower all-wheel-drive C30 prototype and for that matter the Alonso-era Renault F1 cars so perplexingly devious.

The end and a beginning - Volvos sixteen successful years in STCC and the future
Den 24:e september, 2011, körde Volvo Polestar Racing sin sista tävling i
STCC och sin sista tävling med sin 5-cylindriga tävlingsmotor. Efter
sexton år i STCC som det enda märket som har kört samtliga tävlingar
sedan serien startade 1996, och även det märke som har tagit flest pole
positions, pallplatser och segrar, kommer Volvo byta till Touring Car Team
Association Series från 2012. Filmen visar Volvoteamets sista helg i STCC
bakom kulisserna och avslöjar tidigare hemlig information om motorn.
Filmen återblickar även till tidigare säsonger och tävlingsbilar som
850, S40 och S60 och ger en föraning över vad som komma skall under 2012.
Sju minuter ögon- och örongodis för Volvo- och racingentusiasten.

in the STCC and the last race with the 5-cylinder race engine. After

last race weekend behind the scenes and reveals previously hard kept secret
information about the engine. The film recaps on previous seasons and race

Volvo S60R car review - Top Gear - BBC
Is the Volvo S60R really a rival for the BMW M3? Jeremy Clarkson isn't so
sure, but can he be pursuaded when the Top Gear boffins turn off the
Volvo's traction control and hand the keys to the Stig?
