Polestar S60 T6 AWD

Polestar S60:




Pretty cool car, IMHO. Can't wait until some real tests are done, but a "test" of the car can be found on youtube.

Rumored to have sticker > $150k and possibly $200k, which would be laughable if true. Under $100k and it would be killer.

Specs are quite impressive, but it looks like an ungodly hybridization between a Lexus and a Mercedes, not so pretty oO

If they are serious about the price tag, I'll get a Ferrari instead

Lenoi has bought the first one, but that car is a one off, the production version if built will be towned down a little, I'm sure.
