Cyan Racing remained at the Nürburgring Nordschleife after last year’s FIA World Touring Car Championship race to perform a secret test.
The objective was to take the performance of the Volvo S60 Polestar road car as far as possible.
The result was record-breaking and the learnings were so important, not only for the road car development but also for the race team that we had to keep it a secret for a full year.
Only now, just days before we return for the 2017 WTCC Race of Germany, can we reveal what really happened.

Polestar is Volvo Car Group’s performance road car brand and was founded by Polestar Racing, today known as Cyan Racing. Polestar’s birth was a result of Cyan Racing’s race engineers desire to explore how technology behind the multiple title-winning success in racing could be applied to the performance of road going Volvo cars, on all roads and conditions in everyday life. The first road-going performance Concepts were launched in 2010 and the first performance cars, based on the Volvo S60 and V60, were ready in 2012. In 2015, Volvo Cars acquired Polestar Performance. Today, Polestar builds the S60 and V60 Polestar, a 367-hp performance road car with over 250 developments over-and-above the standard Volvo products. It also offers Polestar Engineered performance hardware upgrades and powertrain software optimisations for existing Volvo products.
