Happy Alvistide everybody!
Ford has released its fourth Snowkhana video in time for the holidays, complete with miniaturized, seasonal Ken Block-style action... and Santa Claus drifting a Ford Focus RS in the snow.
Jaguar dreams up a new sleigh for Santa Claus based on the F-Type roadster but with jet engines instead of a supercharged V8 and skids instead of wheels.
October 31 is no longer known as Halloween, or All Saints' Eve or even as that day when all children simultaneously develop huge cavities. It's now known as the day before Christmas/holiday advertising begins.

Lexus just announced a previously unheard of – and unthinkable – achievement by an automaker, or any other company for that matter: saving Christmas from being ruined for all the good boys and girls!

Christmas is coming and Christmas-based sales campaigns are here. While some might argue (and I agree) that reindeers are, by far, a greener mode of transportation than cars, BMW has decided to use a 1-Series coupé to power Santa's Saint Nikolaus's sled, which is, at least, better than an SUV.
