Volvo's S60 range is reportedly set to get a Polestar-developed V8-powered M3-fighter. This week, a new amateur rendering has surfaced online, offering one designer's idea of how the new hero car could look.
Working with the current R-Design model as a starting point, designer Nik Pakiz has given the S60 a beefier front bumper with larger intakes, along with a lower ride height and flared guards.
The Yamaha V8 can be found in a variety of cars, from Volvo's own XC90 and S80 - where it produced a comparatively lazy 232kW - to the Noble M600 supercar, where two turbos help it on its way to 478kW.
Reports from Swedish website Teknikens Varld suggest that the new S60 variant will feature a sequential gearbox, sending power to a Haldex all-wheel drive system.
The new S60 Polestar will be a wilder beast, with a wider track and the pumped-up arches to accommodate bigger, fatter wheels and tyres.
Polestar has already put a C30 on the track for the Swedish Touring Car Championship and their C30 Performance concept shown at the 2010 Gothenburg Motor Show had a 302kW motor powering a Haldex all-wheel drive setup.
