This might be Jay Leno's new ride

If I'm being honest, Volvo has never produced an automobile that caught my eye. Typically, I think of safety and boredom when I hear the Volvo name, but a new concept has surfaced that is certainly not boring. The concept car is called the Volvo S60 Polestar.

This concept is limited-edition to your vehicle with modified turbocharged straight six producing 508 hp and 421 pound-foot of torque. The machine also has a Haldex AWD system and special Ohlins suspension to make it right at home on the racetrack.

All that power equates to a Sprint from a stop to 62 mph in about 3.9 seconds and a top speed of over 186 mph. Apparently a rumor circulating that Jay Leno has purchased the blue car you see in the photos. Me likey.

​This Electric Beetle Is A Masterpiece With A Price To Match

Oct 30 2014 9:00pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

I've been on a resto-mod kick for the past few months, fantasizing about hopping-up a Volvo 122S, a vintage Mercedes, or maybe a Squareback. The combination of classic style and new tech is just too damn enticing, and on more than one occasion I've thought ab ...

Exploring in L.A.: Redone 2016 Ford Explorer Headed to Los Angeles Show

Oct 30 2014 12:41pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The refreshed 2016 Ford Explorer is coming sooner than we thought when we recently spied the thing—it’s just weeks away. Look for the crossover utility to debut at the fair-weathered, traffic-snarled smog capital of the U.S., Los Angeles. Ford’s mid-cycle update is rather late on arrival, although SUV buyers haven’t truly minded. Even though the Explorer’s popularity has waned since its 1990 debut and heyd ...

It was one of the better LeMons races in what has turned out to be the best season in series history, and we’re here to show you who took home what trophies. Here we g ...
