Nice! The Focus SVT is not a bad car at all. They handle well and have decent power in the upper RPM range. The seats look pretty disgusting though. lol

The SVT focus is a re-worked 2.0L (170 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque) with a six speed manual trans with short shift, lower and tighter suspension, bigger brakes, sometimes came with HIDs, etc.

If I remember right it redlined at 7200 RPM, and pulled well all the way to red line. The six speed allowed you to keep it and good operating RPMs all the time. It cornered pretty flat, bushings, swaybars and everything were firmer on it. But it still had a nice ride.

They were pretty cheap too. I hate the standard Focus but the SVT was pretty fun to drive.

There are several articles out there about them..

I suppose you think women shouldn't vote, Hybrids are the devil's work and the South will rise again? Welcome to the 21st Century . . .

Got about 4 of them in my region all with the Jackson Racing supercharger kit. One of them is a factory Ford race chassis for World Rally. They all do SUPER well. Amazing little cars. The SVT guys did some black magic voodoo to make them handle so well.

I wanted one of these soooo bad when they came out. I still do. Totally jealous man.

haha who knows, the world is unpredictable nowdays :p. haha im just saying, who sells their truck and gets a little car? though times are rough on some so i understand from that angle if thats the case. but my mileage has went to crap anyways since i got bigger tires and whatnot. but meh i dont care, i have the safe mind that i can do alot of things cars cant do in my truck. i dont care too much about being faster than everyone or anything.
