My issue is this:
How many people will drop $40k on a Focus thats hardly better than a $30k (and under) Focus? These probably won't sell well, and some people at Ford will see that and think, "People in America won't pay that much for a Focus, so lets not give them this new Focus RS and waste our time and $." I wouldn't think like that, but i'm sure someone will.

wonder how much of that 14k is in brakes wheels and tires let alone stickers.
unless it has coilovers on it then this price tag is outrageous.. a good effort. but executed wrong.

At that price point, a gently used Z-06 Vette would be in my garage, next to the pile of money left over.

I doubt that I was ever in the intended sales demo anyhow.

I hope the theory 04ZTSJelf just stated doesn't go that way, but it probably will. This doesn't sell, so Ford says forget it to hot hatches in North America.

I'm disappointed, but not surprised. You're paying for the name and exclusivity. Doing those upgrades yourself will be much cheaper, and there are plenty of tuners supporting the ST for power upgrades.

Seems like the seats are a major downgrade though.

And no LSD, I was kinda hoping to see that...

I agree, that's the color combo I'd pick if I was buying one.

I'm a little disappointed in this. I mean it is cool and looks awesome. I've also been a Shelby fan since I can remember. I've wanted a GT500 since they've been re released. I was kind of hoping for the same lust here. But meh. I'm gonna be buying a "toy" this year and I am interested in an ST but I don't want to pay that much more for a Shelby ST. I could get a used GT500 for the same price. Oh well. A swing and a miss I guess.
