Volvo S60 Polestar TC1
We all love stylish colors and cool liveries on fast racing cars, but there’s something about a clean, ‘naked’ bodywork that gets me excited. This Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 is a stripped-down vehicle, built strictly for developmental purposes and possibly to get feedback from fans – your reaction? Some might remember that the Swedish automaker and Polestar Cyan Racing announced a return to the World Touring Car Championship. That may not sound like much, but once you get your research done, you realize the other competitors should really be worried. The Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 was designed to compete in the series and it’s been tweaked ever since in the hopes it will grab the gold.
Racing cars are picking up valuable miles and data on circuits around the world, which is why the company has built another one just to tinker with back at headquarters. Showing off a dark look – instead of the French racing blue or the Swedish flag livery designed by Prince Carl Philip – the S60 TC1 impresses thanks to the carbon fiber and steel bodywork. Some might say this is dull, but the gallery below begs to differ. Besides, we all know that your perspective would change once you get behind this racing car’s steering wheel.
