Damn I checked. 07 Cobalt SS= 8:22.85 Ford Focus RS= 8:26

The Cobalt was driven by an unnamed person for Motortrend. The Focus was driven by Horst Von Saurma, a regular "Ring" driver. All I can say, is WTF? I guess it must have the magnetic shocks and suspension similar to the ZL1 and Caddy. I'll have to look that up. Either way =RS, sorry, but facts is facts. That's fairly sorry to have a limited edition car upstaged by a craptacular run of the mill Korean designed American labeled tird muffin with a turbo.
LOL, yeah thats pretty bad... ford will need to do better. The RS needs to be effing mean, awd, and practically priced. Price it like a new STi, pushing 40k (which I think is absolutely ridiculous, but that's what it's gonna be. Remember back in the day when STi's were 30k? What happened to that?)
