    Looks nice, but pointless if they won't use it to its full benefit

    It's definitely a PR stunt, but further raises the question of what we'll do when holden and ford no longer offer large RWD, high powered sedans which have historically been used for pursuit/hwy patrol work.

    I thought proper polestars only came in rebel blue?

    Everything else is just polestar mapped.
    19t, greens, 3" inlet, 3" downpipe with race cat, V70R catback, autotech map...

    310.2bhp / 333ft/lb

    2016 Swedish Day UK "Best Modified Swede"
    SOLD

    Got an old discovery now.

    The OZ police have been given one of the small number of the earlier 'polestar' cars that were intended to be assembled from kits in that market.

    At the last count very few had been sold due to the greedy, optimistic and uninformed price asked for them. They are all in the pre facelift garb which cannot help and have a lower spec than those 'polestar 2s' whose limited production run has just started. There again here in the UK and elsewhere the price for the better specced facelifted 'polestar 2s' is just as daft.... but hey hoe, one born every minute. They should make a sensible purchase here in the UK in a couple of years for 20,000 or less.

    That's what I was thinking ref the second hand price, although shipping would a factor.
