DexterZX2 There is a red ST at my local dealership. I have crappy cell phone pics of it, but I'll have to take my camera out and snap some good ones.

The reason is new cars don't unleash everything until you get 50 or so miles on them. A self-imposed break in if-you-will. The other part of that is the adaptive learning the new models have: with the first few miles on the one you drove being babied, carefully driven, 'cause-the-salesperson-may-be-watching miles; you're not gonna get the aforementioned response or speed.

The ones at the performance academy were all driven hard... and they whipped ass! If you take one home and flog the piss out of it for a week or so, the computer will get what you're trying to do and politely oblige!

There were 2 or 3... they were Cosworth creations and went for around $45k when people got around to selling them. Rare as hell, they are!

MotorcityJAX I honestly can't believe the dealer told you they were "upgrading" to AWD, that's just a bold face lie, that can't even be legal for them to say

Sometimes I think it the dealers who ruin the entire experience of owning and buying a car, not to mention Ford's vision of making an affordable hot hatch.
