Volvo Car Australia CEO Matt Braid says the company has been toying with the idea of a variation on performance for some time.

Although regular S60 variants rival likes of BMW’s 3 series and Mercedes-Benz C-class sedans, he highlights the S60 Polestar will not take on Germany’s performance power centers – both of which are powered by 300kW-plus V8 engines.
