Volvo C30 PCP driven
You saw it on the show - now remind yourself just how good this little Volvo is...
Posted: 09 Feb 2011
This is the Volvo C30 Polestar Concept, a 400bhp, all-wheel-drive
mini-monster built by Volvo's official Swedish race outfit. And TopGear has
just driven it round Volvo's Gothenburg test track...
It is fast. Worryingly fast. One of the very quickest small things we've ever driven. Polestar says the C30 recorded a 0-62mph time of 4.6 seconds... and that was going easy on the transmission. They reckon a full-bore test would see it go close to four seconds flat. It'll lap Volvo's test track quicker than an Evo X... and within a few seconds of Volvo's C30 touring car.
