German magazine Auto Motor & Sport lets Volvo S60 Polestar race against the two beasts, Audi RS4 and BMW M3, at Gothenburg City Arena.
The 500 horsepower Volvo S6 is a reflection of Polestar’s current racing program. Under the hood sits a revamped 3.0-liter inline-six with 424 lb-ft of torque that takes the S60 Polestar from 0-60 mph in less than 4.0 seconds.
Polestar initially built a one-off for a single customer, but they have enough parts for 10 units that might be used for testing purposes or new customers with enough cash.
Audi RS4 Wagon is powered by a 4.2 liter direct-injected V8 that produces 450 hp at 8250 rpm. Maximum torque stands at 317 lb-ft and is available from 4000 to 6000 rpm. Audi claims a 0-to-62-mph sprint of 4.7 seconds.
The M3 needs no further introduction, but for those of you that stats junkies here are the highlights: powered by the S65B40 naturally aspirated, high-revving 4-liter V8 that is based on the 5-litre S85B50 V10 that powered the E60/E61 M5 and the E63/E64 M6. It delivers 414 horsepower at 8300 rpm, with peak torque of 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) at 3900 rpm.
So which one takes the win?
