Back in the day, Volvo made some of the coolest little hot rods ever. The 850R was a personal favorite.

But in the early mid 2000s, Volvo got out of the performance game. Thank God for Polestar.

The Swedish tuning house is putting its hand to some of the latest cars to come out of Gothenburg. For the S60, Polestar adds all-wheel drive, a six speed, and cranks power up to 508 horsepower. That's pretty excellent.

So is it better than an established player like the manic C63 AMG? Watch along as our resident sidewaysdriftologist Chris Harris finds out.
