Ford Named Best Engine in the World
Considered the parent country of brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Porsche, Germany is one of the leading automakers in the world—and its countrymen know it. Prouder than a dad whose kid was accepted into an Ivy League school, the Germans know their cars are good and may resort to violence if told otherwise.
Imagine their surprise when, during the Frankfurt Motor Show, a variety of German passerby on the street were told that an American company won the 2013 Best Engine in the World award instead of one of their beloved carmakers. Can’t imagine it? Well, watch this video and see for yourself:
The reluctant bearer of the bad news? Paco Erhard, a Frankfurt Motor Show correspondent and German native. As he walked the streets of Frankfurt, he asked random passerby the same question: “Who do you think won the 2013 Best Engine in the World award?” And one by one, the Germans responded with the names of German carmakers, whether it was Audi, Volkswagen, or Mercedes-Benz. Slowly but surely, Paco unenthusiastically broke their hearts, explaining that the automobile powerhouse that is Germany was beat out by the American Ford. The reactions were astounding—some even mildly violent.
