Harris says the turbocharged sedan with 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque - and a manual transmission - is "a study to see if Volvo can get back into the fast-car market." The Polestar S60 concept, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/19/polestar-volvo-s60-concept-already-sold-for-300k/">one of which was already purchased for $300,000</a> by a private buyer, is still making the publicity rounds because even Volvo's Chinese owners realize that, as Harris says, "<a href="http://autoblog.com/volvo">Volvo</a> sold more cars because it made fast cars" like the old 850 T5 Wagon that stormed the British Touring Car Championship in the 1990s.<br /><br />For reference, Harris compares the blue wonder to the <a href="http://autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/c63+amg">Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG</a> and its 487 hp and 442 lb-ft. The question is, were Volvo to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/07/13/volvo-in-serious-discussion-trying-to-make-polestar-s60-a-prod/">get the price of a production version</a> of the S60 Polestar to climb way down from its 200,000-pound sticker, could it be worthy competition to the established giants?<br /><br />You can watch Harris divine the answer via a lot of drifting through the snow and a drag race in the <a href="/2013/01/24/volvo-s60-polestar-concept-plays-in-the-snow-with-mercedes-c63-a/#continued">video below</a>.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/24/volvo-s60-polestar-concept-plays-in-the-snow-with-mercedes-c63-a/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Volvo S60 Polestar concept plays in the snow with Mercedes C63 AMG</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/24/volvo-s60-polestar-concept-plays-in-the-snow-with-mercedes-c63-a/">Volvo S60 Polestar concept plays in the snow with Mercedes C63 AMG</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 24 Jan 2013 19:58:00 EST.
