    Aha yeah. Would anyone here from the US drive one a European Focus?

    A bit like this:

    I think the equivalent in America is a Focus SVT?

    Gorgeous...although I don't like the back as much as the back of the 3. The global c-segment platform is pretty evident, though. I guess the upside is that we have the 3 and the S40, even if we don't have the Focus.

    I do hope that Ford's plan forward works, though... *le sigh*

    Ford's taking too long to introduce these models. The last RS suffered a similar fate, by the time it was released the model it was based on was almost obsolete.

    Shame though, I can't even begin to imagine just exactly how good a 300bhp 4WD Focus would be. :eek:

    The shots I saw looked a bit like an ST! Still, would have been a nice R32 beater. I wanted my parents to buy an St, but we got a 180BHP Leon instead:)

    D'oh! :p

    Those 5 cylinder ST's sound immense on a fly-by. :D

    I know! Anything is faster than the Mk4 GTI we've got anyway!

    I've been seeing those around for the last year, and they are awesome! I wanted on the first time I saw one and I would definitely buy one in the states if they ever made it to market:( The Focus SVT doesn't even compare to this guy.
    I think it's a shame that so many European cars (made by US companies) don't make it to the states for sale, because I'm assuming a lot of them would sell better than what there's now.
