Talking This is what we live for.

http://www.topgear.com/content/featu...ries/16/1.html

Finally, some praise from a higher athority.

Jeremy Clarkson, a highly praised automotive journalist and a leading presenter on the BBC show "Top Gear", has finally put some thought on the newly discovered Predisessor to the "Azbo".

Of course Clarkson has always been a big fan of Fords, as he has personally owned an Escort Cossi, Focus RS, and he recently bought a new Ford GT.

take it from the expert, this one is gonna be a big hit.

Ok - I've resisted saying this for a long time (because I didn't really BELIEVE in saying it until now):

Ford NEEDS to bring this car to the U.S.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Instant street cred.

(Meanwhile, check out the flake in the paint in that close-up up of the vent - HOT!)

Wow, I was just reading about how the RS engineers came up with revoknuckle design yesterday from the august 4th edition of autoweek. Ford claims it nearly eliminates front-drive TQ. steer & can forget using expensive AWD for the RS.

FORD IF YOU CAN READ THIS:

I Kevin will buy TWO of these the second they come over:

So figure I will spend $50,000 on those two....

So get it over here now.

Thank you.

I know - it seems really hard to believe (that it took someone this long to finally come up with a solution). I'll be every interested to know when we'll get such a thing (the RevoKnuckle) stateside...

That car is stunning. Ford, please bring it over here. I love my current Focus but I think a lot of people especially fellow FF would sell their cars in a heart beat for one. All we can hope is thanks to gas prices getting higher and SUV and Truck market falling that, that will put more money into Focus related cars since the Focus is selling very well around the United States.
