Default K-PAX Performance Volvo C30 GT Tunign Kit Delivers 280-HP





Quote:
K-PAX Racing is taking their knowledge and expertise gained from racing Volvos on the track to expand their business portfolio with K-PAX Performance Cars. After winning the Manufacturers’ and Drivers’ Championship in 2010, K-PAX Racing formed their sister company, K-PAX Performance Cars and have now debuted their first vehicle, the Volvo C30 GT.

The Volvo C30 GT is based on the C30 R-Design, but has been outfitted with a performance package developed by K-PAX Performance Cars to be distributed by Volvo retailers in North America. Much of what helped K-PAX Racing achieve their championship has been carried over to their street car. Upgraded suspension, brakes, exhaust and adjustable ECU software offers performance enhancements while new wheels and tires helps the Volvo C30 GT get a new grip with its 280-hp.
Only 500 C30 GTs will be available and each are numbered with a full 5 year/60,000 mile warranty. Pricing has yet to be released.

This is great news. I've loved this car and a 53hp bump with suspension tweaks and visual enhancement to boot = win.

It's still FWD, but I'm sure that k-pax has figured out a way to make it handle well and be fun to drive. But yes, it would be great with an AWD option. After all, it is basically a Focus RS underpinning.

One of my best friends is president of K-Pax Performance, before that he was partners in Evolve. They are putting a lot of effort into making the c30's quicker on the track. The S60's cleaned up pretty good last year.
Hopefully we will see more performance products coming from K-Pax in the coming months.

The regular C30 is a torquey car to start with. It has a lot of trouble putting down the 220hp it has through the front wheels.

I dont think anymore HP is going to do much good without substantial front-end work to make better use of the power. Maybe this car will have it.

The polestar one is where its at, I agree.
