Jay Leno Drives the Volvo Polestar S60 Concept

Last year, the Polestar division became a sort of in-house tuner for Volvo. They two companies have collaborated in the past on a number of project, and Polestar even runs a racing team using Volvo cars.
But by far their greatest achievement for the year was the introduction of the S60 Polestar Concept. Based on the regular sedan, they've built a one-off custom car with 508 hp and all-wheel drive that could humiliate all of its german rivals.

The car look a lot like the regular S60, so naturally, people had trouble understanding why somebody payed $300,000 for it.

Thanks to Jay Leno, we finally understand. It's not a stock S60 with a tuned engine at all. Most of it is custom-made, from wider doors to carbon fiber fenders.

The S60 Polestar is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine which has been tuned using race tech to produce 508 horsepower and 575Nm (424 lb-ft) of torque. The Polestar will sprint into the nighttime ski at the speed of 0 to 100 km/h time of just 3.9 seconds. Top speed is also up there with the best of them – 186 mpg (300 km/h).

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
