Ford Focus ST

The Ford Focus ST's public debut was at this year's Frankfurt Autoshow. Everywhere you look in Frankfurt, banners proclaim this hot Focus' arrival. Ford provided two for our cameras to capture, one in this loud metallic orange and another in a race-inspired blue and white paint scheme. They even brought along the Focus ST's little brother, the Fiesta ST, how cute! Despite its handsome exterior, the Focus is anything but cute. A 222-hp turbocharged inline-five is stuffed under that hood, making the ST one fast Focus! Ford claims the Focus ST will do Zero to Sixty in 6.5 seconds, with a top speed over 150 mph. The Focus ST will start around 24,200 euro or over $30,000.

      ...but if you do bring it, take care to water down the design and performance so that no one WILL buy it.

      Call is crazy or whatever, but whenever a car sells for, say 20,000 euro, it sells for less or equal to $20,000 over here, regardless of the exchange rate. Those intelligent euro-dollar comparisons are only valid if you intend to import the thing. For example, you can see online the jeep starts at 16000 pounds in the Uk, $19000 dollars in america, and $24000 euros in germany. I really think Ford won't import the thing because it is worried about ruining that working class car image that GM stole from it eons ago.

      There's 30,000 reasons you will not see this Focus in the states. Very few will be willing to drop that much for a Focus.

      If ever the term "butter face" applied to a car, it would be this one.

      whatever you do, FORD, do not bring this car to the US. It might actually sell and we really don't want that, do we? FORD has its reputation to consider here.
