And now, the future is here. The production version of the PCC, the Volvo S60R, is an intelligent, high-performance car featuring an adaptive active chassis, a 300-horsepower engine, Servotronic Steering, powerful Brembo brakes, and a Haldex electronically controlled all-wheel-drive.

The Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept, aptly called Four-C, employs seven electronic sensors to collect data on the movement of the car, adjusting shock valve damping almost instantaneously, based on driving style and road conditions. The Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept of the Volvo S60R is one of the most advanced chassis on the market, measuring data input five hundred times per second - that's every other millisecond.

Under the hood of the Volvo S60R is a Turbocharged 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder engine, which provides 300 hp and 295 ft/lbs of torque at 2,100 rpm, propelling the car to 155 mph (electronically limited). Two transmissions will be offered: an all-new compact 6-speed manual gearbox, developed by Volvo Cars, and a 5-speed Geartonic semiautomatic, which allows full automatic or manual gear selection.

Equally up to the task of bringing all of this fun to a safe stop are the four-piston Brembo brakes with aluminium calipers to help reduce heat buildup. Anti-lock brakes, traction control and Volvo's Dynamic Stability Control System (DSTC) are all standard on the S60R.
