How powerful is a V8 Supercar?

Bathurst 1000

For many, the V8 engine is the best thing you can put in a car. Of course, there are much more efficient, more powerful and even more refined solutions. For example, a good V6 may be more refined, but the sound of a V8 is powerful and brutal.

V8s are the engines that have made the muscle car concept great, although in Europe Mercedes-AMG models have also carried it with pride. And how can we forget the Ferrari, Lamborghini and other sports cars, supercars and hypercars that mount a pair of turbos to get the most out of a block ready to give wild power figures.

Generally a V8 engine usually has two banks at 90 degrees, but there are narrower and some wider. Its origin is in aviation (it debuted in 1904) and it was not until 1932 when the first model appeared: the Ford V8 with 65 hp. Since then, the rest is history…

Australian car brand

Volvo Polestar Racing has a new race car, which will participate in the Australian V8 Supercars championship events in 2014. The new S60 V8 Supercar, with about 650 hp of power, was driven on its presentation on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The next step, jumping onto the track in Adelaide next February 27.

The 1,410 kg of weight of the Volvo S60 V8 Supercar (almost 300 kg less than the standard S60) are moved by a naturally aspirated 5.0 V8 petrol engine, with an approximate power of 650 hp. Its performance is spectacular: 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of up to 300 km/h. A true racing car.

Volvo’s relationship with Polestar began in 1996, as a partner of the Swedish manufacturer in sports engines and performance. That is, they are responsible for developing Volvo Motorsport cars. With them they have participated in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC).

Not only that, but there are also two outstanding production models, among others, with the joint signature of Volvo Cars and Polestar: the S60 and V60 Polestar give extra power and sportiness to the models of the house.

In 2000, the private teams began to have races (and even dates) independently, so that the main and secondary divisions (Level One and Level Two) took the names V8 Supercar Championship Series and V8 Supercar Development Series respectively (the second division was sponsored by Konica until 2004 and by Fujitsu since 2005).

Historically, the Australian Touring Car Championship encompassed several divisions. The main class was for 5.0-liter engines, which gave rise to the battle between the Ford and Holden brands, both with high sales and a traditional rivalry in Australia. The second class changed regulations numerous times throughout its history. In 1993 the Superturismo homologation was adopted for it, and in 1994 it became an independent Australian Superturismo Championship.

Within the V8 Supercars calendar there used to be three special races: the 1000 km of Bathurst, the 500 km of Adelaide and the 500 km of Sandown, which were run at the Mount Panorama racetrack, the Adelaide street circuit and the Sandown Raceway. The third of these was part of the calendar from 2003 to 2007, while the other two have remained. In 2005, the category tested a race at the Shanghai International Circuit, which was unsuccessful and was never held again. It then visited the Bahrain International Circuit in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010. As of 2010, the category visits the Yas Marina Circuit.
