Default [MotorTrend] Polestar Volvo - 500HP.

Yes, it's a 500-horsepower Volvo S60. Yes, it's fast -- very fast indeed. Polestar, the company that built it, is estimating 0-60 mph in less than 4.0 seconds. (If they said 3.5 seconds, we would believe them.)

Polestar Volvos are sick. I love the color.

It seems Volvo may be interested in turning towards the performance market next time they redesign the cars. That's next year. Many rumours that they will sell cars similar to this as the new R models. This is what I speculate:

S60 Base - $25,000
S60 2.5T - $29,000
S60 T5 - $32,000
S60 T6 - $36,000
S60 R - $48,000
S60 RP - $60,000

That would be cool

That's a complicated trim lineup right there. Thats near what Ford's got now on the F-series lol.

Take a page from Camaro

LS
LT
LTZ
RS
SS
ZL1

The last two are the only ones that are much of anything special. SS has always been a GM moniker, as has RS. What's the RP stand for for Volvo? Never heard of it.

Race Premium. I made it up, lol. It's an ideal lineup. Like, the R version on steroids.
