Send us photos of a new wagon out testing, and you've got our attention. Send us photos of a fast wagon lapping the Nürburgring and, well, we're just as giddy as can be. Our spy shooters just blessed our inbox with some fresh shots of Volvo's new V60 wagon out testing in Polestar guise, sporting the same Rebel Blue paint job as the thunder-from-Down-Under limited-edition S60 Polestar, as well as an aggressive front fascia, huge wheels, Brembo brakes, a rear diffuser panel and a roof spoiler. Hello there, hot stuff.

Like its sedan counterpart, the V60 Polestar is expected to use a boosted version of Volvo's 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine, pumping out something like 350 horsepower. To keep everything in check, that force will almost certainly be sent to the ground via all-wheel drive.

It's unclear if Volvo will sell the V60 Polestar as a limited-edition affair for our friends in Australia, or if this longroof hot-hauler will be offered in other markets this time. After all, Volvo is bringing the V60 over to American soil early next year, so consider our fingers – and toes – crossed.

UPDATE: Thanks to tipster Gary R., we know have a very brief video of this same Volvo running one section of the track. Scroll down below to hear the Polestar in its element.

      Is it going to be real AWD or will it be another Haldex system that is basically FWD until slippage is detected then sends 'up to' half the torque to the rear?

      Reallu digging this wagon. And I'm sure in Europe it will be offered with a manual. I just don't understand how hard iy is to offer Americans that option if they are the kind how enjoy rowing their own gears. I'd rather enjoy driving the car 90% of the time on the actual road, than that 10% when u r on a track Trying to shave that 1/10 of a second off your lap.

        different reason for manuals overseas. Cheaper, being the primary one. Americans like to multi-task.. therefore the less they have to do behind the wheel, the better. Part of it, yes, is age; because of various conversations on here about the fact younger people are not buying cars; it means older people ARE, and that is all about overcomplication, and the easier something with technology is to work with, the better. I am not speaking of myself here, I have only owned one vehicle that was an auto-stick. The rest have been manual, because I enjoy the one-ness with my car.. (1.4L Turbo Dart, with a stick, tyvm)

        Ok manuals make about 1%-2% of all car sales in USA, so you want a niche company to offer its niche car in a variety that appeals to 1% of all people who buy cars in USA. I see manuals on the roads, most are on sportier cars drivven by young people...............older people with money buy Volvos why would they offer a product that their buyers to not care for. No one of value drives manuals in USA, dude you can not even buy many sedans from a major automaker these days with a manual.........let alone this.

          "No one of value drives manuals"? What the heck does that mean, Seal?

          Looks like it's actually somewhere around 6-8% ( http://content.usatoday.com/communities/driveon/post/2012/04/stick-shift-manual-transmission-ford-focus-surprise-more-interest-------/1#.Ul03YFOwAg8 ). Part of that is due to a lack of models being offers with manual trannys and part of that is that is likely due to the fact that automatics and now pretty close to equal in gas mileage. The car I have now has a six-speed automatic but it also have paddle shifters. It's the first new auto I've ever purchased without a manual transmission. It works well, gets good mileage and it's not irritating in stop and go traffic. But I still miss rowing the gears. I'll probably satisfy that itch with a second vehicle or get another motorcycle. NOTE: My kid is about to get her license. She's already been told her first car will be a manual. That's a skill she WILL have for the rest of her life.

      This exactly fits my needs and desires. But, alas, if it does make it to the US, it'll be priced too high for my frugal wallet. But I love this.

        True. Volvo is no longer an Everyman brand, but up there with BMW and Mercedes and unfortunately priced out of reach of the very people who would make it a sales success.

      view out the back has diminished some; but otherwise, nice wagon!
