Currently reading: Volvo "in serious discussions" to make S60 Polestar
The 500bhp Volvo S60 Polestar concept could yet see the light of day, according to the boss at Volvo UK

The lunatic 500bhp Volvo S60 Polestar concept could yet find its way into production. Nick Connor, managing director of Volvo UK, said that the company is “in serious discussion with Polestar to try and make the S60 a reality.”

Volvo S60 Polestar numbers would be extremely small, and Connor makes no secret of the fact that the Polestar would be a marketing exercise. If it does go into production, it will cost more than £100k and retain the concept’s supercar-rivalling power figures from the 3.0-litre turbo’d inline six-pot, and four-wheel drive system.

Polestar was originally born out of the team that ran Volvo’s ’90s BTCC efforts, and the manufacturer link remains strong. But Connor states that “motorsport, including touring cars, is not a key area of investment currently. We haven’t ruled it out but there are no immediate plans”.

i just wish that volvo would

i just wish that volvo would try to put the c30 polestar concept into full production again. they missed a really great opportunity when they didn't make it. also, they should improve their sites about volvo repair shop. i just think that the site lacks information about their cars.
