Fail!

I predict the closing of Shelby American within 10 years of Carrol Shelby's death. These guys have no game. The Super Snake gets overwhelmed by cars that cost tens of thousands less, and have hundreds less hp. The Focus ST Shelby has stick-on carbon fiber ricer fakeness. They might as well start selling "Shelby" stickers on ebay so anybody can put one on their Honda.

What a rip off...a lot of money for stickers, a badge, tires and wheels, shifter, seat covers, springs and upgraded brakes (red paint??)

I vote Fail.
Fail, miserably. Hideous side stickers at that, that would be the first thing I would remove!!!!! This package starts at 15K, WHAT IS THE TOP END????????????

Looks good. Ruffly $30,000 grand for the ST and you want to add $10,000 or so for stickers, some minor body kit changes and some stiching on the interior seats. You have got to be kidding. What a joke!
For less about $4000 I can put a Turbo on my 2010 Focus and pretty much walk that thing all over the place.
How about FORD and SVT put there money into designing a GEN 3 Lightning. Short bed, Standard cab with either a Super Charger or Turbo'ed 6.2 L. I need a GEN 3 Lightning to go with my GEN 1 & 2 Lightnings.

I find it odd they used an ST1 for this.

15 grand for zero HP.... sounds like a good deal in my book.

FAIL

I don't see how this could even be considered a win.

Like I have already said. Carroll would be very disappointed.

What does Shelby have to do with a FWD sport compact? This car doesn't make sense. It's like having a Fiesta Cobra.
