I think it is very cool and I really want them to actually make it this time.

A lad on here knows a bit about this as he's a Volvo tech. Hopefully he may shed some light.

Seen one in the flesh at good wood last year and it is actually stunning.

Haha. I'm getting rid of mine mate! Looking at DCi's now. Sick of having to fix the Vectra so much!

Can't believe you've not shifted the ST though.

On the Volvo topic, my bro-in-law had a D5 S60R for a short time. Rapid as funk! Interior was very marmite though.

I think some people haven't quite realised that this thread is about the S60 polestar which has just been announced and not the C30 polestar which was released in 2010.

Volvo have said if there is enough interest they will put it into production this time though.

I hadn't - I had just expressed my love for the C30 polestar. ;)

It will be a cracking buy in about 5-7 years if it goes into production (watered down version), stupid depeciation on Volvos.

It costs $300,000? I assume that would be the price they would be charging for one-offs?

Duh...

They both look fantastic IMO. They should have made the C30 with the stock Focus RS power, would have sold plenty. Perhaps they are waiting for the right timing though, you want the whole brand to benefit from a Halo model, and at the moment there is nothing vaguely sporting in the Volvo portfolio.

There is a bit of a following of the old R models - 850 and the old V70's in Scandonavia, it's a shame that they have discontinued the R brand, as I would absolutely love a V70 or S60 R of the newer Gen.

Would probably be my choice over a high spec BMW or Audi if I were in looking in that market.

Buy a sensible family estate, she said.

Hope these new polestars are good. Would be nice to see a rival to AMG/Alpina.
