    As a Volvo junkie I am thrilled with this news. Can't wait to see the first videos of the car testing in that brilliant Polestar Blue livery.

    Lets hope the team will use this as the dominant color for their race car as well.

    But with regards to that engine. What current Volvo uses a 4.4L V8?

    happy days.
    I can see them doing well, GRM right now is punching above it's weight in regards to budget so well, so with factory backing these guys will be great

    I also found some articles about Volvo using a V8 Yamaha engine for some reason.

    Isn't the picture there showing a STCC Volvo. Doesn't mean it will look like that in V8's. But at the same time, doesn't mean it will look to different either!

    I was about to say the same thing. I think that the rear wing will be different and there will be less aero in general (e.g. down the sides), so perhaps a 'simplified' version of that car...
