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.

Leno drives Volvo P1800 from Roger Moore's The Saint

Sep 18 2014 4:06pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Videos, Volvo, Celebrities, TV/Movies Outside of a few notable exceptions, Volvo usually isn't associated with making beautifully curvaceous vehicles. But in the 1960s and early '70s the company proved with the P1800 that its cars didn't only have to be safe but staid family transportation. Underneath that shapely styling were a lot of components from the ...
