In 2017, Volvo and Geely-owned Sino-Swedish automotive brand, Polestar unveiled its Polestar1 halo car, an AWD two-door plug-in hybrid packing a 2.0L four-banger. And as Polestar now prepares to phase out its inaugural model in favor of the upcoming Precept and Polestar3 SUV, the company is giving its halo car one final sendoff with a limited edition run of Gold Polestar1 models.
Conjured up as the ultimate expression of the Polestar1, the special edition Gold-spec features top-of-the-line track-ready componentry including top-shelf Öhlins suspension and Akebono brakes, and a twin rear electric motor setup that, when coupled with its gas engine, puts down 609hp and 737.5ft-lbs of torque. In addition to a 163mph top speed, the car also offers a best-in-class range of 77-miles when only running off of the batteries. Distinguishing it from the regular model, the LE version’s polymer-reinforced carbon fiber bodywork has been adorned in a matte gold livery juxtaposed by black wheels with matching gold calipers, while the interior gets gold accent stitching throughout, gold-colored seatbelts, and carbon fiber door sills and accents. Limited to just 25 units in total, the 2021 Polestar1 Gold Edition is available for order now via the link below.
