Focus XR5

Found a really nice review on the XR5, relating design and performance... also has a few pictures that work great as wallpapers :D
It's kind of a long read but it's very nicely done.

The review is here: http://www.topspeed.com/cars/ford/fo...r5-ar7587.html

^^^well actually maybe not, the falcon probably would be awesome, and if like its manaro/gto rival it would be cheap with insurence and be considered a passanger vehical. Why the GTO is considered that by insurence companys i dont know. Anyway, ford is not going to bring it here b/c one, itll compete would most definitly compete with the mustang and two, the GTO has been killed b/c sales were so bad so fords not about to bring something similar over here. I really dont see why the gto did so bad, other then everyone complaining it wasnt retro enough. It looked decent, the interior was really nice(thank you assuie) compared to other GM products, it handled good for a heavy muscle car, had plenty of room for 4 passangers and best of all, it cost less to insure then my focus, and it has 400hp and tq all for like 30k. Now they are crazy cheap, ive been seeing ones going for like 25k or less with less then 10k miles on them.
