Volvo rumoured to build V40 Polestar to rival Focus RS

According to a report from Motor Authority, Polestar is working on a performance version of the V40 compact wagon. (S60 Polestar pictured) Jay Leno drove a Polestar V60 recently and came away very impressed.

The Polestar V40 will likely be very blue and very fast. It could produce as much as 315 horsepower and could rival the Ford Focus RS. The power will come from Volvo’s new twin-charged (turbo and supercharged) four cylinder.

It’s still unclear whether the car would use front or all wheel drive but the one thing we can count on is that it will be very fast. Unfortunately, we can’t buy the V40 in Canada so this Volvo is going to have stay on the other side of the pond.
