hallo :D

I stopped today to take 4 pics with my mobile, quality is not very good.
I don't know if you have this Focus ST WRC edition in UK, i don't know exactly how many exemplars exist for Switzerland and rest of Europe, in this garage is already the 3th they sell in some weeks.

Article in English for you:

Last WRC season, Ford won the Manufacturers title for the first time in 27 years by accumulating 195 points overall but missing out on the Drivers title by 1 point (Loeb 112, Gronholm 111) and the Swiss are going to celebrate! And celebrating they do with a Focus ST WRC Edition, limited to 100 lucky Swiss who are willing to part with 44,900 Francs.

The road-legal rally replica rides on 19-inch BBS rims wrapped in Pirelli tyres (PZero Nero 235/35 R19 TL ZR 91Y), has special side mirrors, frontspoiler and a hatch with carbon-inlays as well as WRC decals. The interior has besides a WRC badge, a carbon-look to it.

As the name suggests, the special edition is based on a Focus ST with 2.5 liter Duratec Turbo engine delivering 225 horses at 320 Nm torque. Floor the pedal and you'll be on 100km/h in roughly 6.8 seconds and it will keep going till you hit 241km/h. Braking is thought of too, front brakes have 320mm discs with four-piston calipers and in the rear you'll find 280mm discs with two-piston calipers.

Wow what a lovely great. fat Volvo-engined nightmare! What a shame they don't have those over here, it would be really funny trouncing that overweight 'rally replica' - What a shocker.

Seriously though, I like the wheels, look like the 20" optional wheels for the 599 GTB Fiorano.

That fat overweight nightmare would drive away from you after 100 mph easily...

That fat overweight nightmare would drive away from you after 100 mph easily...

And before too - the big 5cyl turbo lump dishes out bucketloads of torque...

The road is the truest test and I was all over an ST the other day, the acceleration isn't a patch on RS's I've come up against and the body roll is shocking, the guy was having to slow down so much in the bends because he was understeering off the road. If I cared what car walked away from me over 100 I wouldn't own a hot hatch! The ST (unlike the old RS) is a marketing exercise, not a driver''s car - Not a fan, sorry.

Everybody everywhere (well, me) knows the Trophy is good for a 1:32 something. The fact it's slower than the Cup in the back of Evo is a travesty and a Lie. :lol:

I was a bit harsh about the ST, it's not that bad. Would rather have an R26 though if I had to have a lard arse hatchback. Much quicker and a better car.
