You can't just convert the price from GBP to USD. It doesn't work like that for auto sales. A closer estimate is to add about 3-5k onto the price.
For example, look at ST prices. Almost the same identical car:
FOCUS ST-1 from £21,995
FOCUS ST-2 from £23,495
FOCUS ST-3 from £25,495
Focus ST-1 from $24,995
Focus ST-2 from $26,880
Focus ST-3 from $28,930
