I'm going out on a limb with this...

What car is this??? - (Vince)BurlappCars.com



It was spotted in the US recently.

compare



note: we know from a Focus video that the new Focus has center-sweep wipers

which imho can also be seen on the Mystery Car
&
imho the windshield/A-pillar shapes are awfully similar...

Looks like the Hyundai Azera:
imho the mystery car looks more Focus-size to me
...might be because posters at Vince's put the Focus in my head
& since I hope the C557 does NOT share more than (some) glass & basic 'form' with the Focus...
&
*really* hoping if it is the C557, there'll be other/better pix soon
I DO NOT want to wait until LAIAS!!!

Windshield is "spot on" Focus. I sure hope this is a Focus ST, and that there isn't a waterfall grill under the padding!
The shape of the headlights looks mostly similar, but the lenses look different.
Bumper looks very similar, but foglights do not line up. As noted, mirrors have changed. Overall, this is almost exactly what differentiated Mercury from Ford in the 1990's.

Please, Please, Please...don't let this be the Mercury Tracer.

^ I sympathize, Logan
but
there could still be different sheetmetal below the beltline
(tho DO expect the overall form to remain closely related)

the other-main thing I'm wondering about TOO is if the Focus-3-door/Merc-C557-sedan/or-whatever-the-mysterycar-might-be
has unique headlites ? ! ? ! ? !


&
love the 'guess' at Vince's today...
...that it's a "Bugatti Veyron 1-series"
