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.

Volvo Plans New Sports Cars and Convertible

Oct 13 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

There was once a time when the words “Volvo” and “sports car” were as compatible as oil and water. Volvo just didn’t have the chops or the intention to build sports cars. Volvo built safe cars, which is what the Swedish automaker ultimately decided to hang its hat on. Times sure have changed because Volvo is not only thinking of overhauling its lineup, but its planning to do it by re-entering the sports car and convertible market. Stranger things ...

Is it any surprise that we're all very visual when it comes to staying in touch in our vehicles?
