Has anybody in here seen the cosworth (i think thats what it is)concept Focus. Scheduled for production in 2005 i think it was :confused:
300bhp
AWD 6 speed
turbo
OMG
discuss.....
 
the Focus RS is on sale here 215hp turbo.
and the Focus ST 170 with NA 170 hp.

what kinds a foci do u get over there.
 
Focus will make a car that can compete within its class in the american market? I am astounded. Perhaps American automakers will finally earn a portion of my paycheck each month.
 
I wonder what ford will charge for an AWD turbo svt focus. Isn't the current foci svt 16-17K. I don't trust fords ability to build a quality reliable automobile. As far as im concerned ford=vomit.
 
Do you REALLY have to bash Ford in EVERY thread they come up in? Seriously....WE FUGGING GET IT, ALREADY.
You were all good for the first sentence.
 
Yes, I've seen it first hand in thier prototype shop in Dearborn Heights, MI. It does look like a badass car but there are no plans for an AWD version to hit the states. anywhoo, it is turbocharged w/ liquid-air intercooler........ohhh, and it's got a Mustang GT style hood :rolleyes:

you have a dsm
 
If anyone doubts the ability of the Ford Cosworth line of cars need I remind you to I think it was one of the getaway in Stockholm videos where a Cosworth Escort was hanging and even beating at times with a Supra or something like that. The Cosworth cars are something to be feared and if we get one over here it will open alot of peoples eyes.

Good observation.

I also owned a supercharged 2v mustang Gt for 5 years. If ford tries to sell a 30 thousand dollar Escort in this market it will be the funniest thing since the 35 thousand dollar o3 cobra recall mobile. I sure hope it does not come with firestone tires BWAHAAAA.

I in noway knocking the Cosworth, but I have that video. There is no way the Cosworth can keep up on top end against that supra. If you noticed when the supra actually gets on it on straight roads it becomes a small dot on the screen. I dont seem them bringing it here, but who knows we have the Sti,Evo, and that neon.
 
These are Euro Fords,Made in Germany,this car got 1st place this year in the TUV report...

They r good (Focus)
 
It's supposed to be released in the states as the AWD model. or am i mistaken

...the last I spoke with a few of the prototype builders, Ford had no intention of releasing an AWD version in the States....

...And if you also noticed, when it came to the twisites...the Supra was meat for the Cosworth...

Both cars kicked ass to their respective strengths...

Getaway in Stockhoml II RULEZ! :thumb:

Ok. Focus Cossie = awesome. It looks awesome, although of course the US will never get it.

Here's something else I don't get....

Pretty - and obviously a huge f***ing FMIC on there.... but then there's this:

Which looks like it has an air-water IC sitting on the side there. So what gives? I doubt it has two intercoolers.
