Polestar Cyan Racing has unveiled the Volvo S60 Polestar Art Car WTCC by Bernadotte & Kylberg for the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The design has been made for the FIA World Touring Car Championship ”Art Car Contest”.
The design has been completed by Polestar Cyan Racing driver Prince Carl Philip and his colleague Oscar Kylberg.
”We are humbled and excited to get this assignment. The concept behind the design is the Swedish flag. We wanted to drape the car in the Swedish colours and to use Cyan Racing as an element in the design like a track texture. We also wanted to create a sense of constant motion on the car but still keeping it simple. A lot of the design in motorsport is overly complicated and we wanted to keep the Scandinavian tradition of simplifying things. We are very much excited to see the car at Goodwood Festival of Speed,” Bernadotte & Kylberg.
Prince Carl Philip and Oscar Kylberg runs the designer company Bernadotte & Kylberg together, working within home interior design, textiles and life style products.
The Volvo S60 Polestar WTCC by Bernadotte & Kylberg was exhibited in the F1 Paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the world’s largest motoring garden party.
The road car version of the WTCC car, Volvo V60 Polestar, featuring the all-new 367 hp engine, was also part of the festival in the First Glance group and running up the hill twice each day by a Polestar Cyan Racing driver.
