Goat Roper Kind of reminds me of my race against an F355 (in my mod'd SHO), I knew I had no chance, I just wanted to hear and see this thing take off. To my surprise I stayed close enough to read his plates until the light changed in front of us.

The best place to get experience against the big boys are "track days" at places like Road Atlanta or Elk Hart Lake. At IRP I was able to get laps with recently retired Nascars, NSX, Vipers, Porsche Turbos, an absolute blast. The best part was smoking the guys in their mid-late 80s Porsches with the old Ford.

Karifan with that kind of money you could probably convert a focus into a little mercedes LOL

which makes a lot of sense since the focus already has superior handling compared to most cars in its class.

I am so in Love with my focus that I intend to keep it for the next 10 years and slowly mod it to oblivion (including transmission and engine swaps).

jaykirs Hmmmm, now just imagine what could be done to a SVT Focus for what the AMG costs ..... I'm thinking 800+ HP small-block V-8 Twin Turbo AWD ...... ok, I know, getting a little carried away LOL

Karifan more like Bad A$$ than bad.
Now how the hell did Mercedec become a topic of discussion on a ford focus site?
LOL

KoRnGtL15 I worked at a mercedes dealership for about 2 1/2 years. I always got to test out the new toys. Just before, I left. I drove a 2k4 E55 AMG. It was 130k. Oh man was that thing fast! The tires couldnt even hold it in a straight line. The traction control light would come on. So, yeah dont mess with benzos that say AMG. Even the newer mercedes without the amg are pretty damn fast.

PapoSwing Don't mess with the AMG!!!!! Not my cup of tea but Mercedes really packs a punch with those engines.

blueoval Yeah, the AMG would be like the SVT is to Ford. I guess the price really depends on the model your looking at.

oneill8769 dad has a guy he works with that got an AMG for 125k. musta been a different model. that's their SVT, so to speak, right?

jeremy any amg model = extreme mercedes, even back in the "80's



but then, there are always exceptions to any rule...
