      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.

      Even if they build a tamer version I would be all over it.
