The 367hhp models have been upgraded with adjustable suspensions produced by Öhlins that is 80 percent stiffer than the standard V60 springs, six-piston Brembo brake calipers with 371mm discs and bespoke 20-inch wheels shod in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.
There are also carbon fibre bits to reduce weight and aerodynamic modifications to the exterior to increase downforce by about 15 percent on the V60. The parts include a new front splitter and side sills. The S60 also gets an extended rear spoiler which helps that sedan’s downforce increase by about 30 percent.

Volvo claims that the improvements enhance the handling and high-speed performance of its 60-series models without hindering on-road usability. The 367hp/470Nm turbocharged four-cylinder engine used to power the S60 and V60 is the same and so is the transmission. The 0-100kph sprint still takes 4.7sec and 4.8sec for the S60 and V60, respectively.
