2000 Volvo S60 PCC Concept

This concept was developed with focus on a new computer controlled road-handling system. The new system, called FOUR-C, keeps control of the cars dampers, making adjustments 500 times a second. FOUR-C has 3 driving modes easily changed from the dashboard (1.Comfort 2.Sport & 3.Advanced Sport).

With one of the world’s most advanced dynamically controlled chassis, an electronically managed four-wheel drive and 300 bhp, Volvo’s Performance Concept Car is a future study in high-performance engineering.

Thor’s Lighting Bolt first struck Volvo in 1995 wîth the introduction of their screaming yellow 850 R . With the unveiling of PCC, looks like lighting can strike twice. The all new Volvo S60 is the sportiest, most dynamic Volvo sedan ever. Developed in parallel wîth this exciting production model is the S60 Performance Concept Car…an engineering and design study to identify and test technical solutions plus design structures that will support a high-performance European touring sedan.

‘From the design viewpoint, we wanted to provide a hint of what a future high-performance car wîth a Volvo badge could look like,’ says Peter Horbury, vice president and chief designer at Volvo Cars. ‘The Volvo Performance Concept Car has a subtle racing-car appearance that conveys refined sporty appeal.’
