Volvo's new WTCC safety car leans heavy on the safety (pictures)
Thanks to a new partnership with the FIA, you can look forward to seeing this bright blue bad boy on the track at every World Touring Car Championship race.
There's no better way to highlight your brand's mix of sport and safety than putting a safety car on the track.
Under the fancy aesthetic is a standard V60 Polestar, packing 345 horsepower and 369 pound-feet from a turbocharged six-cylinder engine.
To bring it up to track snuff, Volvo equipped its safety car with a roll cage and both rescue and communication equipment.
So, technically, the car you see here is even safer than the car you get for the road, which is already properly safe.
Volvo only brought 120 of these bad boys -- 80 wagons, 40 sedans -- to the US for the 2015 model year. They cost about $60,000 a pop.
You can catch this car in action for the first time on April 1, when the WTCC kicks off its season at France's Circuit Paul Ricard.
