Driven: Volvo V60 T6 AWD R-Design Polestar meets Shelsley Walsh

There was a time when owning a Volvo was considered cool – the year was 1994 and Volvo had teamed up with Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) to contest the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).

To help raise the brand’s profile, Volvo originally chose the 850 Estate, which they reasoned would generate the most media exposure.
