Volvo actually wants to send S60 Polestar into production

It seems the Swedish at Volvo are starting to let their hair down. Somewhat. They’re sticking to familiar territory but they’re planing to install a flamethrower in the kitchen.

Why? Who cares, that sounds as fun as it sounds dangerous. I’m not talking non-sense either, it seems that Volvo is actually interested in sending the S60 Polestar into production.

Before you think that’s some monogrammed, custom safety belt edition, have a good look at what the S60 Polestar Concept is all about.

With a turbocharged engine and a four wheel drive system that can get all this power down it can get from 0 to 62 in just 3.9 seconds.

Forget BMW M3 and Mercedes C Class AMG models, that’s the kind of acceleration that worries people driving Porsche 911 Turbo models.

It’s all achieved courtesy of a six cylinder and a Garret turbocharger the size of most house fans which produce 508 horsepower and a maximum torque of 424 lb-ft.

Seeing these sort of specs makes it that much easier to stomach the idea that somebody would pay 300.000 USD to get to own such a unique vehicle.

He may feel a little cheated as more and more reports are coming in from people who claim that Volvo want to make it a production vehicle and sell a limited edition run of the car.

The pricing is currently ball-parked at around 100.000 GBP (some 155.000 USD) which is serious money but the package is so very tempting.

Apart from being the ultimate sleeper, it’s a true performance car you’d actually not be worried to take your family for a drive in.
