    Thumbs up Polestar S60 and V60 Official details released

    The juicy bits are 345bhp, 20 inch alloys and 371mm front discs !!!


    We think they look great.

    I predict a pricetag of 45-50k

    No bloody manual tho

    The V60 is a thing of beauty tho, even if it doesn't have a spare wheel well.

    dont be silly, there would never be a manual.
    it is very much in m3 territory for the type of annual earnings that might allow you to buy one.

    neal is you order already in ?

    the more photos i see the more i want one, unfortunately unless my numbers come up it'll be 2nd or 3rd hand for me! around the time they either become a great used purchase or an expensive used purchase!

    I think we have been shown a Steak and feed a burger by Volvo here!
    When they bought out the concept S60 car with a price tag of 200K no less (not sure how they got to that price?)
    The Concept car had 3 way Ohlins, A wider track and a few other trick bit of suspension hear and there, the wheels where 19" giving the car a better stance (IMO) and they where 265 wide as opposed to 20 x 235, the rods where stronger and the head flowed and valves played with, Biggest thing for me was that, That model with 508 Bhp had a manual M66c Box!
    I would like to see how Polestar came up with the price tag when Volvo had given them an Working S60?
    Yes they had to fit Ohlins suspension and other trick bits but how much did that cost?
    Was there much cutting to make the suspension fit and was there any cutting need of the arches for that size of wheels?
    The Haldex 4wd system was already in that model as was a manual box!
    But all that aside it's not what they showed us all! I smell a rat!
    Lots of members cars on here are have more power!
    Sell a S60R at RS4 Money or AMG money or M3 and yes I would buy one but 200K But a severely watered down version for the money they are going to be asking? On yer bike Volvo!
    I Reckon I am Perilously close to 592 Bhp With all my non dangerous Mods

    what i want to see is the next t6 engine which interests me alot.
    2.0 5 cyl petrol, supercharged and turbo charged, and a electric motor + 100 bhp on the rear axle somehow.

    the next range of diesels will have an ecu on each injector. volvo reackon this is as big a step forward as going from old school diesel pump to common rail again.

    now I had to cancel my order.
    Volvo uk finally put this news on their own site but with the little snippet they decided to only bring the estate V60 in to the uk as they think there is more demand for it.

    First thing I'd do is take off that ridiculous OVERSEIZED Volvo grille badge!

    looks like it came out of a Duplo box.

    At the greedy price set by VPCUK most in their right minds should jog on indeed.

    At 20,000 in a couple of years they may find some interest.....
