BMW finally unveiled the 2016 M2; Ferrari took the wraps off the new F12 TdF; and Ford unleashed the new 2016 Focus RS onto the Internet. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.
The hype surrounding the new 2016 Ford Focus RS is reaching new heights, and Ford's not helping the situation. This week it released a new ad for the new hot hatch featuring it drifting around a record player. The tagline: Heart pounding by design.
In an effort to promote its dealership network's services Ford's teamed up with Dwayne Johnson in a new ad. The spot features Johnson and his team called "The Specialists" as they asses the vehicle's needs and perform the necessary service.
Some might call the 2016 BMW M2 one of the worst-kept secrets of the last year. But now it's official: BMW released video of the M2 in action—along with pictures and some tech details—before the auto-show season really gets underway. With a turbocharged in-line six, rear-wheel drive, the option of a dual-clutch or manual transmission, and limited-slip differential, this just might be the car that restores your faith in the roundel badge.
Hyundai's latest Genesis sedan introduced the automaker's HTRAC all-wheel-drive system. In an effort to showcase how the setup can divert power from one wheel to another when slippage is detected, the automaker created a video using specific scenarios and LEDs on wheels to show you when power is shifted around. To say it's neat would be putting it mildly.
Ferrari has one-upped itself again with the introduction of the new F12 TdF this week. It's powered by an updated version of the V-12 found in the current F12, now putting out 770 horsepower. Ferrari even released a video showing what modifications were made to the 6.3-liter V-12 in its transformation for the TdF.
