Polestar Performance, the team behind Volvo’s Swedish Touring Car Team, has announced their first complete road car project – the C30 Performance Concept Prototype, which features a 400 hp power output and all-wheel drive transmission.

The C30 Performance Concept Prototype was designed by Polestar Performance, the team behind Volvo’s Swedish Touring Car Team.

The concept includes a 400 PS-engine, all-wheel-drive, and aerodynamics based on Polestar’s race car data. The first public appearance of the C30 Performance Concept Prototype will be at Gothenburg Motor Show (22-25 April 2010).

"We love the Volvo C30 – it’s a great car with huge potential for development with its low weight and low centre of gravity. It’s also a fantastic road car. But now we go much further by combining the road car with cutting edge racing technology," says Robert Dahlgren, race and development driver at Polestar.

"It’s particularly inspiring to develop this specific C30. This car is built just in the way we want to do it. Polestar has probably spent more time than anyone else in the world to get speed out of the C30, and this time we can realize ideas without being halted by specific race regulations," says Jan Andersson, technical director at Polestar Racing.

Further updates on the project, including the announcement of technical specifications, will be posted on the company’s web site www.polestar.se.
