n2o saleen focus

Anyone seen this..
http://www.saleen.com/auto/focus/focus.htm

For being such a "power car" why put a smaller engine in?

smaller engine?

smaller? the 2.3 Liter is larger than the standard 2.0 Liter zetec.

i think the bigger question is - why pay them this much ($24,399 base) for a car with a stock motor, putting out only 150hp? geez, that's subaru WRX sized money there (or SVT focus + turbo).

I totally agree. I'd rather spend that money on a stock SVT and add supercharger, body kit and wing; I'd feel alot better about getting my moneys worth.
BTW Zetec specs: HP 130 Torque 135 .... but we really should already know that.

I dunno where you got your information from but the ZETEC (not Zetech) only has 130hp and that's at the flywheel. Your only making between 104 to 110 at the wheels.
