This Isn't Your Average Beetle

Global Rallycross (GRC) is the new kid on the block when it comes to racing series. To describe it in short it's: take a dozen regular cars, inject them with 4-wheel drive and 600 horsepower, place them on a tight, technical 1-mile track that's a mixture of dirt and tarmac, add a rather large jump somewhere along a straightaway, and let the action unfold through a series of 6-lap heats and a 10-lap...

Whether by choice or mere luck, Audi managed to break the mold and produce a production-viable sports car that looked nearly identical to the concept it was derived from...

For more than a decade Ford has been keeping one of their hottest hatchbacks out or American hands, which is surprising considering they're an American-based company. Finally, enthusiasts can rejoice because Ford WILL be unleashing the 320-plus horsepower all-wheel drive monster hatch we've been lusting after. And yes, I did say all-wheel drive.
