Terry S should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

Volvo Australia has announced that its Polestar range will be immediately dropped.

Volvo will now be exclusively a four cylinder maker, some turboed or supercharged

The Volvo Cars World wide CEO said at Detroit Motor Show they will use high performance developed on electrification, we will use electrification as a booster, we will not start diluting our brand with big engines and extra cylinders, V8's" he said.


Thinking back this ties in with press releases in December 2014 by the new Marketing Boss Alain Visser of Volvo Cars Swedish HO, that he wants to take the company out of motorsport.

"Motorsport does not conform with our brand where we stand for smaller engines and safety"

He implied they will honour the current agreement with Garry Rogers Motorsport until the end of 2016.
