Should Volvo go after the Germans?

Cvhris Harris drives the Volvo S60 Polestar

Cast your mind back to the middle of last year, when Volvo announced its 508hp S60 Polestar. You were probably thinking to yourself, I wonder what that would be like to drive. Well, in this relatively brief clip from Chris Harris we find out.

Kind of.

Conditions were a bit too extreme, insfoar as there was snow all over the place, for a truly objective test, but it looks like Chris had fun anyway. Which is why he also thrashed around in a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG for good measure.

Proving even the best are not immune to simple errors the S60 is powered by an inline six cylinder engine, and a massive blowdryer, not a V6 as noted in the clip. Pretty sure we can all forgive him on that one.

Anyway, since the original release of the details Volvo has said they will make six of these S60 Polestar jobbies. If you have £200K (approx AU$300K) you can get your hands on one. Yikes!
