This whole process comes in steps,*If* it really happens, and *if* they're actually brought to the US, that will be one rare sedan. I probably have more fingers and toes than there are US buyers willing to fork out $155k for a Volvo sedan, no matter how impressive it sounds on paper.
Oh, there is no doubt you can get better, more valuable things for $155,000, even a GT-R and an M3 for 155, no doubt. However this is a limited run car, and there are people who would pay that much money to have something exclusive and unique. They aren't trying to make big bucks off of it, just gauge market response, POSSIBLY to pave the way for a true production car that no one can price out at the moment. 155k is not going to be the price the car will have in the show room when the real product comes in the future, like you said, you can buy better things with that kind of money already.The new $90,000 M5 has 560hp and rockets from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. $155,000 will buy you both that M5 *and* an M3 on the side as a track car. Or you could choose a 518hp E63 *and* a 451hp C63 for that price if you prefer the three-pointed-star. Let's also not forget the 556hp CTS-V available for a bargain basement $65k in sedan, coupe, and even WAGON form.
Again, yes, a $155k Volvo is costly, and nobody but the most interested of buyers and enthusiasts would buy it which is why their scheme to build millions will fai.... oh yes, it is a LIMITED run only for people who have already shown interest (these people DO exist).My '12 S60 T5 is a fun & practical commuter vehicle...but a $155K Volvo is a silly notion...even a $75K Volvo is a stretch! Just look at Volvo's current sales numbers...based on those numbers....they have other pressing priorities...developing vehicles in a niche where they have limited experience...would seem to very poor business choice.
Exactly. At its current price of $150k there is no use in talking about value because it is an amazing product that is being sold as it is being bought, they are only building as many as are being sold at that price. The future price will be adjusted accordingly but don't look to Volvo to be trying to squeeze serious bucks out of these amazing S60's. If I had that kind of money, of course I would buy it. I could just just wait for the real thing to come out, but it may never come out so I wouldn't wait.Here's why it's worth the price. BECAUSE IT'S A VOLVO THAT WILL KILL AN M5/M3!!!! A Volvo!!! When has Volvo EVER made something that would, off the bat, murder BMW's best M cars? S60R? That was close, but 30 HP too weak. I'd pay for it in a heartbeat. The look on people's faces is worth every single penny. And besides, IF you have 150K to throw around, do you really care about which is better value?
