I wonder, should some one tell Polestar that the [URL="http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40477&page=2#47"]Volvo S60 just got a facelift [/URL]:confused:

Yes - they built it. :)

Luckily, 'crazy' concepts like this can still evolve into production form.

Sick car. Not a fan of the basic styling but the enhancements are A-1, I love a rather sleepy looking bruiser.

Actually it is little more than a standard S60 T6 with a bodykit, some blue paint and a reflashed ECU... :(

I wanted to prove you wrong, but I can't.
Just looked up some stats.

Standard S60 T6 AWD
Max Output : 304bhp at 5400rpm
440NM at 2100rpm
Top speed : 250 km/h
0-100 : 6.1sec

S60 T6 AWD Polestar
Max Output : 344bhp at 5700rpm
500NM at 2800rpm
Top speed : 250 km/h
0-100 : 4.9sec

Meh :rolleyes:

Man of Steel 04-23-2013 03:03 AM

I would still dig it for +40 bhp and the flashy blue paint, but indeed I am now aware it is not as special as I thought it was be. Reason for this is that I am totally blindsided on Volvo's current model range. Definitely no outrageous concept evolved into production then - bummer.

No suspension work done?

Ferrer 04-23-2013 05:59 AM

It still even has the automatic gearbox from the standard S60 T6.

Maybe they are testing the waters to see if they can [I]get away with it[/I]?
[quote=pimento;995048]No suspension work done?[/quote]
Yeah, probably something that ruined the ride.

pimento 04-23-2013 06:14 AM

Even in the mid-90s when they were still using a 4-speed auto, more 850Rs were sold here with the auto than the manual. The manual had more power, more torque (on overboost) more gears and an LSD.. and it was probably cheaper. So.. not surprised this'uns an auto too. Seems like it's basically what the R version should be, really. Still.. if it works and is successful, maybe it'll pave the way for a more nutter version. Polestar R.

Ferrer 04-23-2013 06:40 AM

You see, much like 190E 2.6s (amongst many other cars), no one bought autos back then here.

But well, I guess this is progress.

Polestar is such a silly name though...

Anyone else think of strippers?

I imagine it's supposed to evoke thoughts of pole position, but.. yes. Sounds like a new reality TV show..
