Polestar Cyan Racing has unveiled the Volvo S60 Polestar WTCC Art Car by Bernadotte & Kylberg for the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend. The car was designed as part of the FIA World Touring Car Championship “Art Car Contest”.
The design was completed by Polestar Cyan Racing driver and Swedish royal, Prince Carl Philip, and his colleague Oscar Kylberg. Prince Carl Philip and Oscar Kylberg run the designer company Bernadotte & Kylberg together, working within home interior design, textiles and lifestyle products.
“We were 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 keep it simple. A lot of the design in motorsport is overly complicated and we wanted to stay true to the Scandinavian tradition of simplifying things. We are very much excited to see the car at Goodwood Festival of Speed,” commented Bernadotte & Kylberg.
The Volvo S60 Polestar WTCC by Bernadotte & Kylberg will be 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, the Volvo V60 Polestar, featuring the all-new 270 kW engine, will also be a part of the festival in the First Glance group, and will be driven up the hill twice each day by a Polestar Cyan Racing driver.
