North Star turns the O2 Concept it unveiled in March 2022 into a production roadster named 6. The final version has not yet been revealed, but the brand traveled to the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed to preview what a powerful version of the model might look like.

The design study bears a familiar nameplate: BST. These letters previously appeared on two hot-rodded evolutions of the 2 called BST Edition 270 And BST edition 230but this time they stand alone. Visually, the BST is clearly related to the 6, but it has a more muscular-looking styling that is characterized by a deeper front bumper with a large splitter, flared wheel arches and bonnet vents. It rides on 22-inch forged wheels and the rear gets a massive wing. Race-inspired exterior stickers add a finishing touch to the design.

We haven’t seen the interior yet, and there’s no word on whether Polestar has made any changes to the powertrain. We don’t even know what the brand has started with yet: technical specifications for the 6 haven’t been released yet. All we know at this point is that the roadster will be electric.

“This car is a demonstration of how far we can push our performance brand — Polestar has put 11 on it, if you want to call it that — and a demonstration of how we can apply the BST formula across our line-up in the future,” company chief executive Thomas Ingenlath explained in a statement.

That said, what the future holds for the BST concept is still uncertain. We’ll likely have a better idea of ​​what’s to come when the production version of the 6 makes its debut. It’s tentatively scheduled to be produced in Chongqing, Chinain 2026. And as the name suggests, this will be the sixth member of the Polestar range: the 3 And the 4 are already out, and the 5 will be released in 2025 as an electric sports then.
