The Volvo V40 is the type of Volvo people know and love. It’s spacious, compact, efficient, funky, useful, safe and secure all while coming in a variety of flavors. Both gasoline and diesel variants are available and while some can return decent acceleration times, there is still a hot-rod flare that is missing from car’s portfolio. Even though the V40 has only been on the European market for a few months now, plans are already being made to bring forth a corner carving, pavement spitting and highway bombing Polestar version.
Taking a cue from other one-off Polestar show cars, the V40 might have a better chance of reaching the public’s hands than other offerings. According to an Autoblog article, the car will use a modified version of the tried and true 2.5 liter turbocharged inline five cylinder engine. Spinning all four wheels should be about 280 horsepower which could rocket the car into MazdaSpeed 3 territory. Expected to be first showcased at this year’s Paris Motor Show, the V40 Polestar would hit the market sometime next year but more than likely, it too will be a European exclusive.
