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.

AstaZero is a facility that is flexible enough to simulate almost any driving scenario. In this way it is a one-of-a-kind facility compar ...

During this week’s big reveal event for the 2016 Volvo XC90, we stumbled across Volvo’s ambitious product plans for the next four years—and beyond. Actually, we didn’t so much as stumble across them as we were shown them: Buried in a presentation slide covering XC90 details, and visible for less than half a minute, was a tiny chart showing what Volvo has planned next. This happy accident immediately made the classroom session magnitudes more exciting. We alread ...
