Volvo C30 PCP driven
You saw it on the show - now remind yourself just how good this little Volvo is...

The Polestar C30 uses the 2.5-litre turbo five-pot already found in the T5 (and the Focus ST and RS), but heavily revised and fitted with a larger turbocharger to achieve that 400bhp output. There's less turbo lag than in, say, the Evo FQ-400, and once the engine gets spinning past 4,000rpm, things get all warpy and ballistic. Oh, and it sounds like half an old F1 engine. Deafening. Brilliant.
