Video: Polestar C30 may never make the Top Gear track

James Baggott

The famous 400bhp Polestar Volvo C30, which whipped a Focus RS and Subaru Impreza Cosworth on Top Gear, may never set a lap on the show's test track, the boss of the tuning firm has revealed.

Despite requests from the BBC show's producers to be lent a production model to put in the hands of The Stig so he/she/it can set a lap on the Top Gear track, Polestar has been unable to send a car. And now it looks like it may never happen... for the C30 at least.
