We're ready to go to all the domestic auto shows in the United States to show you what's new and cool in the automotive world.
But sometimes it's nice to come across the pond to find out what manufacturers have got in store for the rest of the world.
And I got to tell you guys, pretty dope.
And we're not going to get any of them.
Well, we're not going to get four of them, so here is forbidden fruit here at the Frankfurt motor show.
Yeah you guys, don't @ me at that, I didn't write that joke, okay.
All right, so you take a BMW 3 series wagon and throw a bunch of aggressive modifications on it and you get the Alpina B3 Touring.
I mean everything from the larger intakes in the front, to the cool quad exhaust in the rear.
I mean this is the wagon I want to have.
Give it to me now.
Plus I've got an upgraded three litre turbo charged six cylinder engine, good for 462 horse power and 516 pound feet of torque.
I mean this is my corner carver, commuter, grocery getter wagon all rolled into one and I must have it.
Okay now to be fair, we will be getting one of Volkswagens ID electric vehicles in the States.
It's just not going to be this one, the ID 3 no instead of folks in Europe will be able to enjoy the 201 horsepower and 229 pound feet of torque, and they can get up to 342 miles of range on the WLT TP cycle.
Not for us, darn it.
And the next car that's not coming to the states but it really really should is the absolutely adorable and all electric Conda E. I mean, look at it.
Don't you just want to put it in your pocket?
It's so quirky and adorable, and I love it.
No, it might not have the most strange about a 136 miles according to Honda but it does have 232 pound-feet of torque going directly to those rear wheels as God intended.
So it should be pretty possible and really fun to drive and we said goodbye to the smart cart earlier this year, but it remains in Europe as the smart for two and this little micro EV only packs 82 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque, but I mean look at it.
How much priority do you really need when your car is this dinky?
Well as the sun sets here on the Frankfurt Motor Show those are just four of the vehicles that we won't be getting in the United States.
I know, you guys, it's such a bummer.
But we've got all kinds of coverage here from Germany so we should stay tuned to the Roadshow.com
