Volvo has launched a new R-Design version of its V40, with a host of upgrades that improve the dynamic looks and sportiness of its new compact hatchback.
Following last week’s news of Polestar’s Performance Concept Project (PCP) S60, the team has released a short film of its unveiling at the Gothenburg City race arena on June 16th.

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).

I bet you didn’t see this coming. Volvo, all safe and sensible hooking up with the UK’s hottest boy band. But then times have changed at Volvo – the cars are still at the top-end in terms of active and passive road safety, but they’re also great fun to drive, especially the latest V60/S60 models.
