Here, at last, is a truly fast Volvo that isn’t rubbish.

Here, at last, is a truly fast Volvo that isn’t rubbish.

If the S60 Polestar Limited Edition was human it could to walk and chew gum at the same time, something that’s never been true of high-performance Volvos in the past.

Engineered by Volvo’s Swedish racing partner Polestar to order for Volvo Australia, the first batch in a limited run of 50 cars will arrive here in late June. It will be priced above $100,000.

This car’s mission is to add muscle to the image of the entire S60 line-up in Australia. The Polestar-tuned turbo 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder engine delivers a creamy 257kW at 5700rpm and at least 500Nm from 2800 to 4750rpm through a six-speed Getrag automatic and Haldex all-wheel-drive system.

Polestar promises a 4.9sec 0-100km/h time. Read full review here.
