The latest Volvo race car will be unveiled shortly at the Sao Paulo Motor Show, and the Swedish automaker released a teaser today to whet appetites.

The Volvo V60 Racing will be based on the V60 wagon, sporting livery that pays tribute to the classic 850 model race cars that competed in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) back in the 1990s. The Volvo 850 Racing team came to be back in 1994 with Formula One driver Jan Lammers and Rickard Rydell behind the wheel of the Volvo 850 Wagon race car. The front-wheel drive racer was powered by a 2.0-liter, five-cylinder with 280 hp.

The predominantly blue and white paint scheme seen on the 850 BTCC racers is being teased in this V60 Racing photo, and it’s a safe bet that Volvo will have a hint of yellow in the rear-quarter panels.
