Pic of the Week: Polestar Volvo S60

The Swedes don't go mad every day, so when they do it's got to be something to celebrate



When we drove the fabulously blue - and fabulously powerful - Volvo S60 Polestar Concept earlier in the week, we came away mightily impressed.

So impressed, in fact, with Volvo's 508hp super-saloon that Editor Trent felt moved to write and publish his piece before the official photographer on the day was able to file the the images from the event!

This made us pretty much the first folks with a drive story on the car (cue smug faces in the office), albeit a little short of images. That's been rectified now with some plusher photography, including this ice-blue gem, which we reckon would complement the desktop of any PHer with a penchant for fast Volvos. Enjoy...

Been waiting for this all week! Had a feeling it might end up being this beast on pic of the week.

I never thought I'd see the day when a Volvo graces my desktop biggrin The colour really sets it off. It's a real shame I'm unlikely to ever see it in the flesh.

Does anyone know the name of this colour? There is a similar colour available in the T6 AWD R-design.

I dont care what its called, that is one serious motor.

Its looks stunning (for a Volvo!) and very much one for the (second hand) shopping list!!

Polestar themselves refer to it as "Polestar Blue" but officially its "Swedish Racing Green".
