This Volvo is Fast as Hell


it’s time for show-off Sunday where
everyone has a chance to show off their own car and here’s this week’s winner so here is my 2014 Volvo s60 r design
Polestar I know first not in your mind that comes mobile couldn’t come up with
any easier name for the car it’s just pretty much a replacement for the s60
ours the p2 body styles it’s just pretty much same concept of all what took about
building their sports cars the upholstery optimization part is where an
option you can get at a dealership where they program your car and take a little
blue badge next to the t6 emblem right on your trunk and it has 25 or 20
horsepower and 30 pound feet of torque over the standard t6 and as for the
powertrain wise these cars come with a 3.0 liter inline six engines paired with
a six-speed automatic transmission producing 325 horsepower and 350 for
pound feet of torque that’s with the optimization if you choose to I
know it doesn’t come with the six-speed or 5-speed manual like the p2 model R
this did but the good part is that the Volvo actually did a great job with
these new t6 inline six engines and the turbos along with their six-speed
automatic transmissions they are really pretty reliable compared to the old ones
these ones do not have as much issues as the old ones did I mean actually we
didn’t even have any we have about 80,000 miles on the blue one and 60,000
miles on this one we haven’t had a single issue and I have plenty of
friends actually only start up in their hundreds and they had not a single issue
as long as you keep up on the maintenance these pretty much are under
struck table engines and transmissions just gotta keep up on the maintenance
some great job well what about that alright so a little bit of a history
about this car why I bought and how I bought it I was in the market for one of
these because I watched some videos on the YouTube I believe it’s on the
grand tour if I’m not mistaking that really
caught my attention so I started looking for these cars and found out that they
had an s60 Polestar as well I really like that body style so I started
looking for some my first one was a blue one 2013 s60 our design t6 all-wheel
drive and then this is my second one that I owned I saw that one to my
brother so I owned this one so I was in the market for one that I actually
already had some upgrades if anybody already you know own the
European car enjoyment car didn’t know that the upgrades for them pretty much
anything is really really expensive so I was looking at one you know to get one
that’s the head already upgrades on it so make it a lot cheaper for me because
I’m one of those guys I like to modify cars so this one already has the carbon
fiber spoiler that you can see right here the duct spoiler it’s pre painted
to match the body color the BBS wheels rear sway bar stiffer springs four
piston Brembo brakes in the front and a k-pax exhaust so that’s the obvious that
I bought the car with as for the outfits that we got after we bought the car I
got a kt4 down pipe with a high flow cat and G of B they’re very well on the
turbo and also we got a elevate cold air intake that we haven’t installed yet all
right now for some cool factory features adaptive headlights that churn where
your turn adaptive cruise control the CT collision safety alert that’s mounted in
here and just when you get too close too fast to the vehicle in front of you you
break this for you so you don’t get a collision
lane departure warning and the heated steering wheel in this platinum model
and also the Volvo are designed bucket seats this is the one of the best and my
favorite features in the car so comfortable and there’s a part that I
really like about this pedometer and you can change the theme of your speedometer
eco elegance and performance which is red
I usually just keep in performance just to match the color of the car just makes
it look cooler sometimes the switching when I get bored of it and another cool
feature in this car is the twin-scroll turbo that literally
never fails to impress every time and another thing I like about these
cars is how comfortable they feel inside literally I mean the seats are the best
in the market I would say under 80 thousand month and eighty thousand
dollars sorry market this is probably one of the most comfortable seats and
interior probably on the market in my opinion I mean they did they Volvo did a
great job since the 2000s in the in these cars on the seats and the
comfortability wise in the in these cars they’re awesome this never fails to
impress like the second you touch the throttle it just goes the twin-scroll
turbo in these cars definitely definitely makes a difference
the 354 pound-feet of torque in these cars it’s just instant just like that
the second you touch the throttle it just goes no no lag at all and for those
