Ford Europe’s ‘Camera Tracking Unit’ consist of a black Ford Focus ST wagon ute and a black Ford Fiesta ST ute. Here are both.
There is perhaps no more low-key amazing car culture in the world than in New Zealand. For example, here is a video simply captioned ‘testing the new exhaust.’
It's like if you crossed the American car scene with Japan's: big V8 muscle cars right beside stout JDM tuner rides.
