I think the real pipe dream is "new transmission." I bet it's a dual clutch and has paddle shifters.

If they can squeeze out over 500 HP from that T6 then they sure as hell don't need a V8 in the S60 (think of that front-to-rear weight balance!!!). Most of the Business editions will be powered by Volvo's D2/D3/D4/T3/T4 engines.

Two different scenarios. Quite a few changes have to take place for that T6 to generate 500 HP.

You are aware of that Volvo sold the S80 with the Yamaha V8? I have droven it, V8 4x4 and Auto, beatiful car!
Yes, but the S60 is a much smaller car with a "worse" weight balance. That's the bit that concerns me. Though, IF Volvo offered something like a 3.6 liter V8 (basically a down sized version of the S80's V8) with a Turbo I think that would be a quick and easy way to get M3 performance out of the S60 instead of strapping on that massive turbo onto the T6.

That's what my father's been driving for the past five years since I talked him into test driving it. It is very nice, but I would prefer the T6 AWD w/ Dynamic package if they would just make the Polestar Performance Package available for it. I'm confused as to why it is not.

Of course, I do not need to tell you that this is one of the most bogus websites I have ever seen!
I think the completely aimless montage of several stock Volvo cars might have given it away.
