Ford to Launch Fiesta ST in North America, Brings Big Speed and Style to the Small Car Market
• Fiesta ST -- a well-known hot hatch born in Europe and now ready for North America -- packs a punch wîth a 1.6-liter EcoBoost® engine producing nearly 200 horsepower
• New Fiesta ST is Ford's latest vehicle to wear the Sport Technologies badge, a global performance brand that debuted in North America earlier this year wîth the launch of the Focus ST
• Exclusively equipped wîth a six-speed manual transmission, Fiesta ST is expected to be a §egmènt leader in both performance and fuel efficiency
Small cars continue to be a hot §egmènt in North America and wîth the new Ford Fiesta ST, introduced at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, Ford is expected to have the hottest hatch around.
Ford Fiesta ST, a performance model first launched in Europe back in 2005, is yet another proof point from Ford that small cars are anything but boring. In addition to a precision sport-tuned suspension and an improved braking system, Ford Fiesta ST packs a punch under the hood.
A new high-output variant of the award-winning 1.6-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine propels Ford Fiesta ST wîth an estimated 197 horsepower and 214 lb.-ft. of torque. In comparison, Mini Cooper S makes do wîth 181 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft., while Chevrolet Sonic RS produces just 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft.
Únlike the competition, Ford Fiesta ST doesn't simply look like a performance car; it's got the guts to back it up.
Engine : 1.6 L., 4-cylinder
Power: 197 hp
Torque: 214 ft-lbs
'This is a rewarding car to rev,' says Mark Roberts, Fiesta calibration supervisor. 'With 177 lb.- ft. of torque available from just 1,600 rpm and 214 lb.-ft. by 3,500 rpm, Ford Fiesta ST gives the performance and feel of an engine twice its size. There's no waiting at all for the power to just push you back in your seat.'
Ford Fiesta ST may be born wîth racing DNA, but buyers won't have to pay for that performance at the pump. Available exclusively as a five-door hatchback in North America and wîth a six-speed manual transmission, Ford Fiesta ST is projected to achieve up to 34 mpg.
This compact performance machine sports a unique grille and chin spoiler wîth new rear diffuser and fascia extensions. Bright tipped dual-Exhaust pipes and high-mount spoiler along wîth unique 17-inch wheels complete the visual package: Ford Fiesta ST looks like it's made for the racetrack. The car is first of its nameplate to receive the Molten Orange tri-coat metallic paint.
Ford Fiesta ST §teering is more direct and responsive than the base model. A unique suspension wîth modified front knuckle makes for a quicker overall §teering ratio of 13.6:1.
The rear axle gets increased roll stiffness to improve stability through fast corners, while the Ford Fiesta ST body sits 15 millimeters closer to the ground than the base model.
Increased mechanical grip provided by the suspension improvements is further enhanced wîth electronic Torque Vectoring Control to reduce understeer during hard cornering maneuvers. Three-mode electronic stability control - standard, sport or off - enables the ST driver to select the amount of electronic aid based on current conditions. Overall, Ford Fiesta ST provides enthusiastic drivers wîth the ideal mix of performance handling and ride comfort.
Ford Fiesta ST will also sound good on the open road. It features the mechanical version of the sound symposer first used on the Focus ST, which went on sale in North America in 2012, to provide an enhanced soundtrack for drivers out tackling the open road. It is unique for Fiesta in that for the first time the engine sound is directly fed into the passenger cabin to accentuate feedback quality and response.
Ford Fiesta ST is the result of the combined efforts of Team RS in Europe and SVT in the Únited States.

2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Popemobile
Dr Dieter Zetsche hands over Mercedes-Benz M-Class in Rome: New Popemobile
from Mercedes-Benz for Pope Benedict XVI
By delivering a new Popemobile to Pope Benedict XVI Mercedes-Benz continues
a tradition, which lasts for 80 years now. Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of
the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars,
personally handed over the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, specifically produced for
the Pope wîth special-purpose body, today at the Vatican.
'It is an honour for Mercedes-Benz to be accompanying His Holiness Pope
Benedict XVI on his future journeys wîth our new Popemobile', said Zetsche
at the handover of the new Popemobile in Rome. 'As such, we are continuing
our long-standing partnership wîth the Vatican. For more than 80 years
now, Popes have been able to rely on the quality, safety and comfort of our
The leader of the Catholic Church makes use of the Mercedes-Benz Popemobile
at a number of public appearances both at home and abroad. It gives him the
opportunity to get as close as possible to the public without having to
forego the highest possible levels of safety and comfort. It will be
possible to see Benedict XVI tomorrow in the new vehicle for the first time
as early as 8th December in Rome, where the Catholic Feast Day of the
Immaculate Conception is traditionally celebrated at the Spanish Steps.
The Popemobile is fitted wîth the latest technological highlights from the
current M-Class. In addition, the vehicle also features a new interior
design. Compared wîth the preceding model, the dome has been extended
significantly, providing an improved amount of space and more convenient
entry access. The view of the Pope has also been significantly enhanced
thanks to considerably larger glass panels in the viewing area, together
wîth large illuminated roof lining. The throne, the central design feature
in the interior, bears the embroidered coat of arms of the Holy Father.
As wîth the preceding model, the body of the new Popemobile is painted in
diamond white. And to facilitate frequent transport of the modified M-Class
by air, Mercedes-Benz has reduced the overall height of the vehicle by a
few centimetres, while at the same time improving the internal standing
height. Work on the new Popemobile began some nine months ago. The vehicle
was designed and produced by Mercedes-Benz.
Mercedes-Benz has been providing vehicles for the trips and official
appearances of the leader of the Catholic Church for more than 80 years
now. The first Mercedes-Benz for a Pope was a Nürburg 460 Pullman Saloon,
provided for Pope Pius XI in 1930. In the 1960s, Pope John XXIII received a
300d Landaulet in the guise of a Cabriolet wîth automatic transmission.
(posted on conceptcarz.com) Subsequently, Pope Paul VI first made use of a
Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman Landaulet, followed by a 300 SEL.
From the 1980s, Pope John Paul II initially also travelled in a vehicle
designated as a 'Popemobile' - a modified G-Class - to the celebrations in
St. Peter's Square. From 2002, he mostly made use of the predecessor to the
new Popemobile, which Benedict XVI has also used up until today. After they
reach the end of their working lives, the Popemobiles can be viewed as part
of the collections on display at both the Vatican and the Mercedes-Benz
Museum in Stuttgart.

Extreme Airport Approach in Iceland! (HD)
Watch in HD! Fokker 50 of Air Iceland landing at Isafjordur airport BIIS
in remote West Fjords in Iceland. A landing from the other direction can
be found below. Air Iceland flies to this airport daily and has been for
60 years. In the beginning they used DC-3, DC-4, Vickers Viscount 759 and
F27 but now they use F50 since 1992. This 230 degree turn to the runway is
neccesary because of the high mountains encircling the airport. This
approach is dreaded by passengers in bad weather because you are so close
to the mountains in a 35-40 degree bank. This airport has high limits
conscerning cloud level and winds. Once you are in the fjord, go around is
not an option.
