No argument. It's Shelby's own literature I linked...

The race goodies are appropriate for its $99000 price.

As with the Focus ST, the ST-R will make 250 hp, but it also gets a roll cage, upgraded brakes and suspension and Ford has taken steps such as removing the carpet to hold down on weight.

Exactly. Reputable tuners have had their tunes out for awhile. You would think that "the premier performance car company in the United States" would be able to launch their Focus with a power bump.
