Volvo S60 Polestar prototype tracked against BMW M3 and Audi RS4 Avant
The mag calls the S60 Polestar "a hard slap in the face to the Germans," but through the kerbs is where the test of man and metal is made. No regular journo affair, Auto Motor und Sport got this year's Swedish Touring Car Championship winner to drive all three on a hot lap at the Gothenburg City Arena circuit to keep things fair (well, relatively anyway – the pro shoe drives a Volvo). Timing duties were handled by a guy with an iPhone, so final stats are approximate. And it's important to note that if/when the Volvo reaches production, it will likely have a price tag that dwarfs those of its German rivals – reports suggest it could cost upwards of $155,000.
No matter, it's thoroughly fun getting there, and you'll find the action, the winner and awesome exhaust notes in the subtitled video below.
