RUMOR: Whoa, Whoa, Whoa - Is Volvo's Polestar S60 To Pack Upwards Of 500 HP?
...
And now that Volvo's been pretty upfront that Polestar is going to sport-up the "naughty Volvo," the S60, we should have something to look forward to that will completely change everything we've known about Volvo as a marque. Remember how cool those real R versions were? They will have NOTHING on the Polestar - you read it here first, folks.

Though it would be pretty cool if Polestar brings back the spaceball shifter -- just saying.

The key will come down to the power being pumped from the 4.4-liter V8 from the XC90. Remember, it is the same powerplant used in the Noble M600, which generates up to 650 ponies.:thumbup:

Now Autocar is saying that loose lips have revealed the hot-to-trot S60 will produce 500 horsepower.


I don't know how accurate this is but they seem pretty sure. Either way, it will dominate every aspect of my imagination over the next few days.

Same here! I have scoured the depths of google news searches to find any tidbit that might hint at something I don't know! Unfortunately, I found somewhere that the current 6 speed auto would be standard. Nothing is set in stone but I hope it is not true, even if it means outsourcing their transmissions. :(

Pffff, I WISH we got a cool exhaust like that, however the one that ended up on it seems equally nice. The rendering was VERY ISF'ish however the car looked a lot more subtle than I expected. That is always okay with me :D
