      508 HP and 3-way Öhlins suspension, now we're talking!

      Would make for a nice M3 & C63 competitor.

      I know there is zero chance of production, but holy ****, Volvo needs to make this, that's awesome... Or at the very least, make that blue, and those wheels, an available option on the regular s60

      I'd be interested if they could ever work up the nerve to build one.

      I don't know if it's even possible to use the term "sexy" in regards to a Volvo but I'm gonna say it anways...that S60 is sexy

      According to the release, if thiers enough demand, polestar may build you one (probably for the cost of a house). Would be great to win the lotto.

      I hope they release some parts bin numbers!

    16. 06-16-2012 02:53 PM #16
      I hope Volvo makes this car. I wonder how much it will cost? I wonder how it compares to the RS4/RS5.

    17. 06-16-2012 06:40 PM #17
      I wonder if Polestar is thinking of an S80 R as well?

      Volvo should just make Polestar their M/AMG division already.

      I'm somewhat amused that a company called Polestar is nothing but an automotive ****tease.

      I believe that's the intention. It's just in the early stages of the partnership.

      hope they do a dealer tour with it so I can have it on our lot next to my 855.

      For some reason, the new S60 never really did anything for me but this is in the best way possible. If they made this, I would sell whatever organs and fluids I had to in hopes of getting one.

      I always really did like that color. The new S60s look fantastic, this has the power to back up the looks. Bravo!

      I thought Volvo was doing this so they can test the market response to such a car and that they are seriously thinking about making a m3/c63 fighter?

      Or is this just another pipe dream...

      The C30 was more or less a pipe dream, but I think the S60 this time really is to test market demand for a M3/C63 competitor.

      When Clarkson tested the PS C30 and then said it would never be built, it really upset me.

      I was already thinking "wow, the golf R everyone wished VW had built drivetrain-wise, with volvo styling. WANT"

      Then he shattered my dreams

      I love the looks but I really doubt that the driving dynamics are on par with the M3 or the S4.
