Volvo Gets 500 HP

So I don't know how many people look at the TopGear website, but I was a bit surprised this morning when I saw this article this morning about the Polestar S60: http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/v...ept-2012-06-18

Here's the most interesting part, the performance numbers

That's right, five-hundred-and-eight horses, shoehorned into the most sensible of sensible family saloons. That's not an increase, that's an assault. That 3.0-litre straight six T6' engine has been significantly worked over; it boasts modified cylinder head and combustion chambers, a modified inlet manifold and air intake, specially manufactured conrods, a Garret 3171 turbo and a Ferrita 3.5in stainless steel exhaust system.
Now I know this is a single-turbo w/ upgraded internals & the S60 isn't exactly compared to the 3-series, but if Volvo puts this into production, I don't think I could live with myself after a Volvo pulled on me
