GOTHENBURG, Sweden — The 2014 Volvo S60 Polestar, the first road car from Polestar to be put into production, is bound for the Australia market as a pilot project, said Volvo on Wednesday. The Volvo S60 Polestar Concept debuted at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.

No word on pricing at this point.

"Introduction of the Volvo S60 Polestar to further markets is under investigation pending the response of the Australian introduction," said Volvo in a statement. Polestar is Volvo's performance partner.

The Volvo S60 Polestar shares technology from the Polestar racing cars, including dampers from Ohlins, high-capacity brakes and a highly tuned chassis.

Volvo's turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine has been revised with a bigger turbo, new intercooler, revised engine mapping and racing exhaust to produce 350 horsepower.

The S60 Polestar accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.

The car features a new aerodynamic package that includes a front splitter, rear wing and diffuser, plus Polestar badging and a limited-edition plate on the door sills and steering wheel.

Edmunds says: Volvo's Australian arm apparently pushed hard for this car, knowing that performance enthusiasts Down Under would snap it up.
