If you were hoping to get your hands on the 2019 Volvo S60 T8 Polestar Engineered, you’re out of luck. Volvo announced yesterday that it would open the order books for the top version of the new S60, but it’s not surprising to hear that it sold out in only 39 minutes.
Why is it not surprising? Well Volvo only offered 20 versions of the 2019 Volvo S60 T8 Polestar Engineered to US buyers. 20 lucky people were able to reserve the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered plug-in hybrid via Volvo Cars’ Care by Volvo app. The sedan is only available via the Care by Volvo subscription service at $1,100 a month.
The S60 T8 Polestar Engineered sends 415 horsepower and 494 lb-ft. torque to all four wheels. Some other upgrades include an Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes and other enhancements.
Since the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered sold out in less than an hour, Volvo decided to offer a complimentary Polestar Engine Software Optimization upgrade to the next 200 Care by Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design subscribers. The upgrade improves throttle response, shift speed, gear hold, and midrange engine performance.
