    The Green Filter USA Focus ST uses vintage Team Lotus colors as a tribute to Ford's involvement in motorsports, including the Lotus-Ford that won the 1965 Indy 500. Apart from appearance upgrades, this ST gets a high-performance air filter with a custom intake and exhaust. The suspension was built by Ground Force to provide “Lotus-like handling characteristics.†We'll believe it when we see it, or drive it. Falken tires cover 18-inch American Racing wheels.

    This Focus is slathered in Gulf Oil livery from Axalta with fender flares from DTM Autobody. KW does the suspension while Baer takes care of the brakes. The Gulf Racing Focus gets dual-side exhausts exiting from an intercooler kit by Vortech. Again, Falken tires hide 19-inch Forgestar wheels.

    Those are both cool looking but I also would never buy one.

    They all look good and then you take them home and wake up the next day and are disappointed the next morning when you see them without the make up and experience the poor performance.

    Poor performance? Look at that Focus cornering on 3 wheels. Imagine the money you'd save on tires Dave? :)

    So you are saying that buying a Ford is like getting drunk at the bar and then waking up in the morning naked next to a fat ugly chick with no memory of how you got there?

    Nice and all, but just bring the RS over when the new one is ready and be done with it.

    Just a little clarification: I am not including Shelby Mustangs and the GT 40.
