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.

2015 Volvo XC70

Nov 4 2014 2:00pm CST | Source: The Car Connection

With the imminent replacement of its largest sport-utility vehicle, the 2015 Volvo XC70 becomes the oldest car in the Swedish maker's lineup. It's the last of the upright, boxy, square-tailed station wagons the brand offers--and it wasn't conceived as a crossover, although that's what it's become for all intents and purpos ...

2015 Volvo XC60

Nov 4 2014 1:50pm CST | Source: The Car Connection

While Volvo launched a new wagon for 2015 (it's called the V60), the role that its big, boxy, slab-sided wagons used to play in U.S. family garages has been take over by a more modern iteration of the utility vehicle. It's the 2015 Volvo XC60, the third member of a trio of mid-szed Volvos built on the same underpin ...

2015 Volvo S60

Nov 4 2014 1:45pm CST | Source: The Car Connection

Volvos are no longer square, but sometimes perceptions take a long time to fade. The 2015 Volvo S60 is an updated version of a vehicle that's now in its sixth year, and it can still startle and impress onlookers with its sleek take on a remarkably practical sedan. It's about as far as you can get from the old, square, sl ...

2015 Volvo V60

Nov 4 2014 1:30pm CST | Source: The Car Connection

The 2015 Volvo V60 wagon may evoke images of upright, square, boxy Volvo 244 or 760 wagon generations of previous decades. Banish them entirely from your mind. The V60, launched this year along with a mid-cycle refresh to the S60 sedan it's based on, is more of a large five-d ...

SUV Review: 2015 Volvo XC60 Platinum

Oct 31 2014 9:24am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Longtime Driving contributors David Booth and Brian Harper share their thoughts on the 2015 Volvo XC60 Platinum. Needless to say, they don’t always agree: Overview Mid-sized upscale SUV is starting to look dated inside Pros Solid as a rock, full suite of safety backups Cons Thirsty, sluggish under part throttle, dash controls are dated Value for money Fair What would I change? Complete upgrade of cabin controls; diesel engine How I would spec it? XC60 Platin ...

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

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 about going electric. Or I could just ...

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 heydey in the early 2000s, t ...
