Volvo seems to be reputed for making safe, sensible and boring automobiles. But now, the company seems to be changing the trend by making its entry in the Swedish Racing Elite League. The S60 TTA, seen for the first time is featured with aerodynamic side skirts, ventilated hood and a huge rear wing. There are also wheels of 18 inch which are backed up by brakes of high performance attached with four piston callipers and discs of 370 mm in the front and 360 mm in the back. Motivation in this model is provided by hybridized V6 engine which gives an output of 420 hp. The engine is connected to six speed sequential transmission which gives power to the wheels at the back.

This model is to enter the competition in the later half of this year with two teams—one is the Volvo Polestar Performance and the other being Volvo Polestar Racing. Three drivers have been confirmed including Fredrik Ekblom, Thed Bjork and Robert Dahlgren. So the company has too many hopes from the model as it has to change the trend for which Volvo was known for so far. Let us see what happens and how it meets the expectation or not.
