Well that front end looks a bit better, chin strap versus big azz nose.

Could the green be a bit brighter, needs more sizzle.

Just for reference, that picture is the old Focus RS.... Pedestrian impact safety could still enter into the new front end.... So to speak....

"Versus big azz nose"

AWD Turbo 3 door hatch that will blow the doors of any JCW, ( 310 hp, 320 lb-ft of torque) yup that car is a winner hands down.

...the RS is free to pump out between 325 and 350 hp. The higher figure is more likely. This is because as a low-volume, niche product that doesn't compete with the Mustang GT, there's no reason to hold the Focus RS back.


Now lets see if it comes in CHILI RED!

Not that I'm a Ford guy mind you, but if that thing lands on this soil the Chili Red MINI might just be history...

I think it is a 3 door killer of anything in it's segment (STI and mk VII Golf R will be it's main competitors)!

I would buy that in a second, especially in green!! A 3 door hot hatch with AWD? Just show me where to sign.

I'm not sure that the current Focus ST even comes in 3 doors in Europe. I know the Fiesta ST does.
