-The new and very Euro Ford Focus coming to the U.S.
in early 2011, and among its variants down the road will be this hot rod version----the Focus ST.
It just debuted at Paris 2010.
A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder under the hood, but with twin turbos and direct injection, that's Ford's EcoBoost combo, giving you 250 horsepower and 266 foot-pounds of torque; one gear box,
a 6-speed manual.
Of course, the suspension's been hotted up by Ford's RS team.
The rear end has all the usual stuff: the wing, the airflow diffuser, center-ported exhaust----all part of current tuner thinking; on all 4 corners, 19-inch wheels.
Inside, RECARO seats and a pod of additional gauges for boost, oil temp, and pressure----that completes the story.
This guy doesn't hit showrooms 'til early 2012.
But finally, our Focus will get the guts the rest of the world's been enjoying.
