      Volvo's new S60 race car for the TTA Elitserien Racing



      Volvo has already announced in August last year of moving to TTA - Elitserien Racing for the 2012, and today they released the first pictures of the new race car.

      Bad A$$ for sure! I'm closing my eyes envisioning what Volvo/PoleStar could do with the S60. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Merc AMG "Black Series" C-class, but far less expensive than $100,000. I'm thinking something in the low-to-mid 50's. Do you think PoleStar could get 450HP out of the T6 with the proper transmission upgrades?

      I LOVE this look. its like DTM and Kpax had a baby and it is Naughty alright!! ya know I think it couuld be a black series type car. Maybe price point at 60-70 still way less than a Caddy CTS-V and waaaay less then the black series itself. But have to be no holds barred wideopen run what ya brung! let the engineers go wild dont hold them back and make it just how it needs to be. Yes its alittle loud and rides alittle harsh but that is what is going to have to be done in this market. Pleeease make a new R TTA edition.

      What is TTA?
      Euro or USA racing? (I guess by the name, Euro, too bad)
      I LOVE this car!

      BTW I don't know if many of you are aware of this; K-Pax is putting together about 20 C30 cars for the street, most will be on the West Coast.

      Not sure of Polestar is too happy but if you snooze, you lose!

      Keystone Volvo is the only East Coast dealer, they already have their car here and will be putting it together shortly, the parts have just arrived.

      Steve Owens (the service manager) has offered me to be their ONLY retail customer to do a drive and evaluation.
      (I guess I'm still relevent to someone even in my gereatric state of being)
      Luckily the nerve in my leg and ankle has gotten a bit better, (healing), not perfect, but I can shift again
      I don't know the full specs yet, something like about 300+ hp, full suspension, brakes and (I think) some body kit parts.
      I think it will be reasonable, I was told under 40K for the full pop car

      Yes, that would be tremendous and I can also envision this as well... However, such a car is impossible to cost in the low $50Ks

      Do you think PoleStar could get 450HP out of the T6 with the proper transmission upgrades?
      Engine internals would have to get upgraded, as well. Much like AMG does to the MB engine blocks.

      You have a couple of grand?
      Those ARE the wheels that are going on the K-pax C30 GT (That's what they're calling it, emblems and all)
      Saw the finished car today, pics and a drive report soon)
