The Volvo C30 Polestar concept has Ford Focus RS-beating performance - and now you can watch it in action in our exclusive video.

The concept gets a mega-tweaked version of the 2.5-litre Volvo T5 engine that also powers the Ford, claimed to knock out 400bhp and – with drive delivered to all corners via a Haldex clutch and two clever diffs. The Polestar is also claimed to be capable of demolishing the 0-62mph benchmark in just 4.6 seconds.
