AutoComplete: Ford teases us with the new Focus ST we'll never get
Here's what's making news on Roadshow.
Ford is showing off the new version of its hot focus ST wagon, and we're kinda losing it.
It's got a 2.3 liter engine up from just 2 liters, and it's pretty dang handsome.
The thing is, and this is a real bummer, it's not coming to the US, ever.
It's available in Europe with either a 6-speed manual with auto rev matching or a 7-speed automatic.
Ford has released performance numbers yet, but with 276 horse power on top, we are betting it will be real quick.
Two words we really never expected to go together are 3D and leather.
But clearly the folks at Bently didn't subscribe to that notion.
That's why the new Flying Spur will be slathered in the stuff.
What is 3D leather, exactly?
It's basically just an embossed or debossed.
I can never remember which.
Diamond print in some of the trim leather.
It looks super cool, though, and it makes us more excited than ever at the thought of spending time in the new.
[UNKNOWN] Nissan is taking a big step forward with its Propilot suite of advance driver assisted systems.
Well, it's launching a hands-off system similar to Cadillac's Super Cruise on its Skyline model in Japan, due to hit the Streets as fall, Propilot 2.0 will work with the vehicle's navigation system on certain highways to offer hands free driving from onram to offram.
It's unclear if we're gonna get this in the US anytime soon but we look forward to trying it whenever it does show up here.
