The Volvo V40 Carbon tweaked by Polestar is making its official debut and will be offered in a limited series of 343 units. This special edition is based on the V40 R-Design but has received a series of upgrades such as a carbon fiber roof, carbon fiber mirror caps, black accents and unique 19-inch rims. There’s nothing much going on inside the cabin, but we do mention the red seatbelts and carbon fiber sill plates.
The Volvo V40 Carbon can be had with an upgraded T5 engine developing 253 PS and 400 Nm which makes it 25 PS and 50 Nm more powerful than in stock configuration. There’s also a revised D4 engine with 200 PS and 440 Nm, representing an increase of 16 PS and 40 Nm.
Volvo will sell the V40 in Sweden, Finland, France, Netherlands and Japan, with only 343 cars planned for production.
