So you should be wearing a flat brim. That's as bad if not worse than wearing one back to front!

First pic just HAD to be of a BLUE one-right?

No-worries......Absolute black works...naw..with the frequency of my car washings better go frozen white.

They went a little reserved on the styling..and no wide body..interesting.


Well-It'll still do.

Ok this thread might as well be my donation thread...poor me needs a new car..
Who wants to be the first to donate to a really worthy cause!

Hej Drengen over here we call those newer things "Suckus"....because they look like Ford "Fuckus"

So No the new Fuckus doesn't look like a Suckus, it looks like a tarted up verion of the same old thing..
Besides, right now nothing is known..
Could be good could be crap..

All we know is we can't afford it.

Every rallyist could afford it. Many choose not to so they can afford other things.

Well said Grant. The average new car transaction price is over $32,000 these days. If this car sells in the range of the obvious competition it should be within $10,000 of that price. This is not an incredible unobtanium price.

For a rally play thing?

I guess debts forever are meh, paying debts is optional, like whatever..

context--- I don't give 1 shit about "street cars" ...only thing I care about regarding cars is as raw material to one day pound on...

And no debts.

And if they have that kind of dough to throw away on playthings, why do people waste so much dough on such lame builds?

From C&D interview with the Ford VP of Product Development, concerning the AWD system -

"Q: Talk us through that system—the rear axle has a continuously turning propshaft and then two clutches that can engage each side separately?

A: It has. You can almost look at it as like an active limited slip, you’re actively working the clutches and so obviously doing the typical varying between front and rear torque splits, up to 70 percent to the rear. But at the rear, 100 percent is available to go to the outside wheel, that’s what’s different. We’re still using brake torque vectoring at the front, which is great for helping turn-in. But for coming out of a corner and laying power down you don’t want to lose anything. So we’re able to electronically control the clutches and infinitely vary the torque, make sure it’s all being delivered."
