Fresh on the heels of the magnificent S60 Polestar, which has a whopping 508 horsepower T6 engine that seems to run on rocket fuel, we bring you more good news from Sweden. This time, it will be a more mainstream version, a T5-powered Volvo V40 which will launch at the end o this year.
The 254 horsepower car will share some of its underpinnings with the front-drive Focus ST. An all-wheel drive version will follow from the in-house tuning division. This will be even hotter, offering up to 400 horsepower.

If the report from Pistonheads proves correct, the Volvo V40 will be transformed from a sensible family car with luxury fittings to one which can rival the Audi S3 or BMW 1-Series. Further details on the projec should be released at the Paris Motor Show in September.
