Remember the awesome C30 Polestar concept that packed all-wheel drive and 405-horsepower into the C30 packaging? Yeah, that’s not happening. But we do get a consolation prize.

Instead, we are getting the C30 Polestar Limited Edition. It’s got all the Polestar dress-up parts and unique paint, while an ECU reflash gives a modest bump in power; 250 horsepower and 273 lb-ft versus the stock output of 227 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. Quicker steering, monotube shocks and stiffer springs round out the package that could best be described as “the Focus ST we never got” rather than a full-on manifestation of the C30 Polestar concept.

The downside? It’s a bit pricey. You’ll have to fork over $32,445, and for that price, you can get a Golf R.
