SWEDISH electric brand Polestar has created a second limited-edition version of Polestar 2 within its Polestar Engineered portfolio - the BST edition 230.

Starting with the chassis modifications developed for ultimate thrills in the original BST edition, the new version puts more focus on performance design details.

Polestar says the edition 230 will have a 0 to 62mph acceleration time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 125mph

"Limited drops like the BST edition 230 allow us to explore colours, graphics and materials in faster and more creative ways," says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar chief executive.

Ddesign upgrades for the 350 kW and 680 Nm Polestar 2 BST edition 230 include exclusive green Nebula paintwork and MicroSuede textile for the seats and steering wheel inserts - made from partly recycled Nubuck textile.

All the chassis upgrades that were first implemented on the original Polestar 2 BST edition 270 remain available, including the lowered ride height (-25 mm), specially developed Ohlins two-way adjustable dampers, front strut bar, 20 per cent stiffer springs and black 21-inch alloy wheels inspired by those of Polestar 1, fitted tyres developed specifically for BST edition cars.

A total of 230 units will be produced for European and North American Polestar markets, with cars available to order immediately online. Prices start from £73,900 and deliveries are expected from the third quarter of 2023.
