When buying a performance orientated executive saloon the Germans pretty much have it covered. Mercedes offers up the C63 AMG, Audi the RS4, and BMW has their mighty M3. To be honest between those machines there is everything you could ever ask for in such a car, and so for another player to pull up a chair at this table would be a tough fight indeed. But here we are, and the challenger comes from Volvo.
That is not a typo! You read it correctly… Volvo. Their new S60 has found its way to Polestar who have paired with Volvo to produce the S60 Polestar Concept. Not only does it look subtly menacing, but under the bonnet is a huge turbocharger that gives this machine an incredible 508BHP. 424lb-ft of torque helps this S60 get from standing to 62MPH in as little as 3.9 seconds. Top speed? That would be 186MPH.
All of a sudden the Germans seem a little inadequate.
