Saw this on the way to work...*drool*

Driving on the way to work, I drove by a truck carrying a bunch of hatchbacks. At first I said to myself, "That color looks familiar". As I got closer, I had to break out the phone...because what I was seeing was a truck with 9 2013 Focus STs and a Titanium on it. I got two pictures (one from the back, and this one from the side) because passing him and finishing my drive to work. The picture from behind is too blurry to really see anything (he was driving pretty fast, actually), but this picture is definitely worthy of a post.

Anyone else excited by this picture??

Those might be the cars from the cross country ST drive event being held on closed courses with professional drivers in the passenger seat for timed auto crosses as a part of the launch event. It looks like at least one or more of them are wearing M-plates.

Well the next event is 8/4 in LA, so maybe they are stopping at home before heading out there.

Cool shot either way.

Considering they were Just in Boston on 7/21 its possible that they will return these cars to dearborn first, and possibly resend them to L.A., or send different ones, but it seems likely that they were in someway related to the event in question since they are not production spec vehicles and I'm not aware of a manufacturer sending a truck load of pre production mules around just for the hell of it.

And the Ti is probably with them to show people the park aid feature.

Could very well be. It was on I-90 about 15 min west of Cleveland (I live in Cleveland and work around 15 min west...this was right before my exit), so there's definitely a possibility they were coming from Boston and heading either to Michigan or straight out to CA. Either way they could be taking 90.

It was a great sight to behold! At first I saw the top back-most ST with it's center exhaust and spoiler. I thought, "Wow they're already shipping an ST!". Then I pulled around to the side and noticed all but one of the cars on the truck were STs. I didn't know what to do with myself lol

Fap, of course

This thread has a lot of win. Also, seeing the roof spoiler makes me wonder what the rain/road grime will be on that window. My Ti gets pretty dirty pretty fast. Wonder if the longer spoiler is better or worse?
