If, like the rest of the world, you find yourself with an insatiable desire to own the ludicrously-fast and equally sexy Polestar Volvo S60 Concept, we have some bad news for you: The machine has already found a new owner.

Some unnamed soul ponied up $300,000 for the keys to the 508-horsepower, all-wheel-drive sedan. That is a staggering sum of money for a machine that's supposed to lock horns with ilk like the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, BMW M3 and Audi RS4. While it's true the Polestar S60 claws at the tarmac with more power than any of those German creations, we likely don't need to tell you what sorts of machines can be had for that kind of cash.

Still, as of right now, there is only one Polestar S60 in the world, and this is it. Exclusivity has its price, and while Volvo is pretty clear on the fact that it doesn't expect to have to hire on new staff to take on a torrent of orders for the $300,000 sedan, Polestar will be happy to put one together for you if you have the means. Here's hoping demand proves high enough that Volvo decides to put such a machine in series production...

        I'm glad you have $300k to spend on a new car. Why wait for this one. There are plenty of super cars out there in "your price range".

          when it goes into production there will be more supply than demand because the volvo marque is not as well known as some others, and the general population won't even know it exists, so it clearly won't be 300k. obviously you are an uneducated fool.

          So because somebody overpaid for this car that means that when the car comes out it will cost $300k as well? Idiot.

      Volvo's next step should be building a high performance car, Much like Audi did with the R8 to show off its engineering skills, and just to make a crazy Swedish Supercar. Could you imagine if koenigsegg and Volvo teamed up to make a supercar. Those crazy Swedes

        I don't think there is a need for that. Volvo's safety technology is a testament to its engineering skills. And you can find a volvo engine in a noble m600

      There are MANY cars I would have used 300k for before this one, as good as it looks and is. GT500, Lambo. Ferrari, CTS-V, 49 Merc coupe slammed, chopped. Channeled and ported and the lost goes on.

        While I agree with you you will always bump into someone that has one as well. Driving this S60 will guarantee you're the only one driving one.

          Seeing an S60 is rare enough as it is let alone a modified one making 500+ hp. And Polestar know's what they're doing. If you don't know Polestar and what they do with Volvo then you need to do some research. And nobody will be doing what Polestar did with this thing. Especially Bob's Tuner Shop around the corner from your house.

          Until someone just modifies their own and makes it look the same for a fraction of the price.

      wow, i thought these things were purely concepts like the polestar c30

        And they cannot usually be licensed in the US. Still, I guess if it's classified as a tuner car with modifications of a legal VIN......

      Wow.....300 k for a s60 with some tuning.........that is a dam shame, one off or not

        @Eta Carinae
        Yup that's all they did was just put a tune on the car. I love when idiots say stupid stuff like this when they have no idea as to what they are talking about.

          Redone engine, 30-mm lower and 20-mm wider body, six-piston Brembos on the 380-mm front discs, a reinforced chassis, upgraded Haldex all-wheel drive, Öhlins three-way suspension and 19-inch wheels on 265-section rubber all around, a six-speed manual transmission, increased track of 20 mm up front and 40 mm out back and a stainless steel exhaust. Weight has been reduced by 204 pounds compared to the North American-spec S60, and naturally, Alcantara shows up in force inside. So there's a little more then just throwing a tune at the engine and proclaiming you have an M3 fighter

          True, but the overall tone of what he's saying is accurate it's not like it has 300k in changes. Sure paying for the exclusivity is one thing but in reality all things aside it's a $60k car.

      300k is a fluke. I doubt Volvo can keep prices that low for the commercial model.

      It would need to be a fair bit more expensive than the S60 R-design (probably around 70-80k) and I do not think there are many people willing to pay that much for a Volvo, not to mention the fact that certifying it for emissions and safety would probably cost too much to justify sending it here, given that production would be limited (as an example, the reason that the US-market Golf R doesn't get the motorsport buckets available in Europe is because crash certification would have cost around $1 million USD for a run of 5,000 cars).

        If people are willing to spend over $100k for a Chevy then a $70-80k Volvo shouldn't have an problems selling.
