After a delightful dose of classic cars at the British Car Museum, we car enthusiasts (well, maybe a little obsessed!) couldn’t resist a visit to Polestar’s offices in Bicester Heritage. It wasn’t just for holiday cheer though, we were treated to a sneak peek at their mind-blowing concept car. They took the best parts of the top three design submissions and magically merged them into one incredible machine. It was a real feast for the eyes, even if its super-low front spoiler wouldn’t exactly handle Buckinghamshire’s roads with grace.
Speaking of real-world options, they also had their sporty Polestar 2 BST on display, plus a left-hand drive version of the brand new Polestar 3 SUV. I took a peek inside the 3 and let me tell you, it’s a beast. Spacious, luxurious, and unfortunately, a bit beyond my budget for now.
But the best part wasn’t the cars (although they were amazing), it was connecting with fellow car lovers from the ‘Polestar Drivers Club UK‘ Facebook Group. I even spotted Rik, the group’s resident pun king, spreading festive cheer with his hilarious wordplay. All in all, it was a fun way to celebrate ta few spare hours with fellow petrolheads (or should that be “electroheads”?).
