Behind the Wheel with Volvo Racing’s Thed Björk
Driver Thed Björk and Volvo Polestar Racing take us behind the wheel in the Swedish Touring Car Championship circuit in his amazing 420 horsepower S60 Polestar STCC. This is the car that Björk drove to the STCC championship win in 2013 and it sounds absolutely incredible, with the V8 roaring down the straightaways and Björk pushing the Polestar through the corners. This year’s STCC championship will be decided at the Mantorp track over the weekend of September 19-20, 2014 with Thed Björk currently the leader in points.
Volvo seems to be making performance a new priority with its commercial products also. The limited edition V60 and S60 Polestars sold very quickly in the United States, so that perhaps bodes well for Volvo to continue upping the performance of its cars and moving its brand further into the driving enthusiast / performance category.
