Last year Mercedes-Benz joined the Australian V8 supercars championship when third-party team Erebus Motorsport was approved the right to use a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG body shell as the basis for their race car.

This year we have another serious contender coming from Sweden. Volvo will be will be entering the ultra competitive championship with a Polestar 650 Hp V8 powered beast. But unlike Mercedes, they don't seem to be underestimating the championship and they are taking things very seriously. We don't have the final pictures of their race car yet but we do now have an idea about the sound of their V8, and it sounds ferocious to say the least!
