MK1 Focus the greatest car of the past 25 years

UK's Autoexpress has crowned the first-generation Focus the greatest car of the past 25 years, streaking ahead of such automotive marvels as the 380km/h McLaren F1 (third place) and the 407km/h, R13.25 million Bugatti Veyron (seventh).

I came across a cool write up from a MK1 owner in South Africa and his story of his MK1 Focus.

Excerpt from the article "Indeed, every time my wife raises the sore topic of upgrading, I give her the same lecture about the perfection of its gearbox, suspension, steering and road-holding and the sheer, brilliantly thought-out positioning of the controls, with everything just where you want it.

“It’s impossible to upgrade from a Ford Focus,” I keep telling her, “because it’s quite simply the best car in the world.”
