Volvo Polestar Racing V8 Supercars drivers Scott McLaughlin and Robert Dahlgren have officially handed over a high-performance Volvo S60 Polestar to NSW Police’s Rose Bay Local Area Command. The 257kW S60 Polestar is capable of hitting  100km/h in just 4.9 seconds and is supplied to the police via a partnership with Volvo Car Australia and Trivett Volvo, Alexandria. “When I was testing this car in the frozen north of Sweden, I never thought I’d be handing over the keys to one down here in Australia let alone to the police!” said Dahlgren, who was instrumental in developing the car and fine-tuning its chassis.

Dahlgren showed Senior Constable Jonathon Stone, Sargent Mick Capon, and Acting Inspector Matt West around the S60 Polestar, highlighting its ground-breaking technology like City Safety, Pedestrian Detection and Adaptive Cruise Control while also detailing its high performance and sure-footed handling characteristics. This is the second Volvo to be used by the police, following an S60 T5 in 2013. This high- performance S60 Polestar will be used as a support vehicle primarily within the community liaison division and not a first response vehicle.
