Volvo plans to take on the Australian racing scene this year in V8 Supercars. To compete in V8 Supercars, you need, um, a V8. A really big, really loud and really powerful V8.
Step forward a pair of Volvo S60s modified by Polestar Racing, featuring the Volvo B8444S. This engine features a unique setup with a 60 degree aluminium cylinder block, a 5.0-litre capacity, modified Volvo aluminium cylinder heads, eight throttle bodies, port injection – with one injector per cylinder – steel cylinder liners, a cam chain and a compression ratio of 10:1.
