The all-new 2011 S60 sedan was only just introduced to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010, but Volvo has already prepared a racing version that will enter the 2010 season of the Belgian Touring Car Series (BTCS).

The new S60 racer was developed locally by Volvo's Belgian S60 Racing Team in accordance with the BTCS Silhouette S1 regulations. All cars participating in the series must use a tubular chassis. The front suspension is independently set up with 3-way adjustable damper and the rear suspension features 3-way onboard adjustable shocks absorbers.

Volvo's proposal features a mid-mounted 3.5-liter V6 engine with 410-horsepower and 412 Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. A six-speed sequential gearbox drives the rear-wheels. Stopping power is provided by 6-pot calipers on all four corners with 380mm discs up front and 355mm at the back.

The Swedish sedan's maiden track test took place on April 1 on the Belgian Zolder track, while its racing premiere takes place on April 11.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
