Ford’s New Focus is STupendous

22 January 2012

You may already of seen something like this around lately and you may know it as the Ford Focus, but the picture in this article shows the Ford Focus, just not the one you’d see parked in your local supermarket. Oh no, this is the all new ST. Well when i say all new, it does look the same as an ordinary Focus, just with a body kit and some new rims, but under the bonnet is a totally different story. It has a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine producing 247 BHP. Unfortunately For will not make a 3-Door version, only a 5-door and estate. But despite being a faster, more hardcore version of the normal Focus, it still attracts many customers booking for when it finally begins production, in April 2012. It will also appear in a re-make of The Sweeney, arriving later this year.

With a 0-60 MPH time of 6.5 Secs and a top speed of 150 MPH, It’s certainly quick too. So the only question is this, with many rivals appearing, whats your choice of new hot hatch?

Renault Megane RS 250 Cup?, Volkswagen Scirocco R?, Volkswagen Golf R? or Alfa Romeo Guiletta Cloverleaf?
