Part of me wants to say that its a great deal. A purpose built track car for under 100k is not half bad. I watched some footage of it racing, and its competitive, which is pretty awesome.

But the other part of me is saying "100k for a focus?!?!? its freaking front wheel drive!"

Not that im a hater, but i see no reason why somebody couldn't pick up a used Lotus Elise, rebuild a bit and drop a turbo on it, and smoke the ST-R for $30k less.
