I don't think Carroll himself would've had any problem working on a Focus. I just don't think THIS is what he would have done. The Shelby GLHS was all about getting as much ass-kicking as they could out of the engine, and cosmetics were secondary. It cost next to nothing to black out an Omni and put a few Shelby decals on it. The faux carbon fiber was completely unnecessary. Horsepower & handling, please....not decals & decoration.

shelby makes money by the barrel-full off of the mustang crowd with this kind of garbage. Their Mustang GTS conversions are a sad cash grab. Im surprised the name still means something to people. What a half-assed attempt (if you can even call it that). At 15k you can build so much more of a car yourself.

Oh, but you get a sweet plaque.

Fail

How can the Performance Tuning be an option. That makes no sense at all for a Shelby upgrade!

Lots of stickers not much go is what i see...My ST3 with the full Recaro leather seats is just fine, thank you very much.

It's funny to see what people pay for cars today. I personally would never pay 35K for something that depreciates faster than a pair of old work shoes.

Actually he's still in the morgue last time I checked due to squabbling between some of his family members! No grave to roll in(yet)!

If he could make a Dodge Omni Go Like Hell there's no reason same can't be done to a Focus!!!

I love the way the st looks. I hate for 7 more grand you get hids. A 45k focus? Absolutely not. I would love to buy an ST but absolutely refuse to pay 30 k for a fwd car. I appreciate Ford is still trying to regain themselves after the industry took a dump but someone needs to pull there head out of there ass and realize people who Want this car will buy a used sti or equivalent and get so much more bang for the buck. And from working in a dealership, I am pretty sure gas mileage is based purely on the engine, not the vehicle its in. People would bring there POS kias in all the time crying about there gas mileage and even looking at the gas consumption chart a kia soul mileage dropped dramatically if you went above 65. So all in all looks alright but huge fail!

45K? My ST3 Sticker was 28K with every thing that could be put on it.

The only thing I like is the Hood, but not for 15K!
