As awesome as this is, however, it doesn't necessarily mean diddly for us.

Any non-federalized car from overseas can be brought over legally for six months (I see shocking Euro diplomat rides - Opels, Fiats, Peugeots, Citroens - here in D.C. often).

And like someone already said, could just be a Ford exec's toy (I wonder what tunes or otherwise are on that iPod?)...

Still, you're one lucky dude for having seen it (and WE'RE lucky you saw it - and snapped it - too). Heck, I was just in Europe for a week and didn't get to see one (except on the front cover of every auto mag in every airport convenience store).

Two other things:

(1) When I saw the first pic, my initial reaction was that it was a joke - because that Michigan tag looks Photoshopped on. But then I noticed the telltale U.S.A. details (the "one way" sign, etc.) and, of course, the other pics.

(2) How in hell did you get the crowd to disperse long enough to snap all those shots? (jk, unfortunately)
In my interior shot on page two you can see the 'Havana' sign for the cuban cafe next to Vinoteca in downtown Royal Oak. Nothing is photoshopped about this.

"We start with something strange - you see last year you couldn't buy a BMW unless you were a cock. Then all of a sudden people with huge watches and stupid Oakley sunglasses, people who tailgate you on motorways, suddenly started to buy Audi's instead. No idea why, don't really care, because what this means is that normal people with normal watches can now buy, for the first time ever, what (if we're honest) has always been, the best sports car of them all. In the past, you had to be a cock to buy one, now though you're a cock if you don't"

u should go back and stalk that car and owner. ask the gabbahubbatribizimillion dollar question? "DOES THIS MEAN THE U.S. IS GETTING THE RS". cmon guys u know how to stalk. uve done it to that fine hot babe that u wish u could hook up with. just hoping to get some info about her so u could get her. HERES THE SAME DIFFERENCE. treat this opportunity the same. the rs is better than the girl in this situation. i would go to jail for this stalking. but before u go to jail make sure u have ur laptop with u and post on FF what the owners answer was about "IS THE RS COMING"

I never said these pics weren't legit, I only said that my initial reaction to the first pic was that it was a joke.

But I KNOW it's not a joke, so I don't need everyone to explain why it's not.

Thanks, though

We need this thread to hit about 10,000 pages, and then someone needs to send a link a Ford Exec. and show them how bad we want this thing!!!
