Hey, so, you know how the 2018 Ford Fiesta ST (THAT WE WON’T GET HERE) has launch control? Do you know how freaking awesome that is? Do you know how mad I am?

The kids over at Carfection recently got their hands on a new Fiesta ST. In addition to the full review, they also cut this short video of host Henry Catchpole trying out the launch control.

It doesn’t look very hard, it looks fun as hell and it’s absolutely enraging. We used to get the Fiesta ST and now we do not, because of sales and SUVs or some dumb bullshit like that. Which means we are completely missing out on some sweet, three-cylinder, launch control fury.

Think one will fit in my checked bag the next time I come back from the UK?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to kick a trash can across the room and scream at my furniture.
