if they do release a 300+ hp version, that would be cool, but at what cost?
At what cost? Way more than a mustang or taurus sho with more power than the shelby st could ever put out.
There's a point when a specialty model no longer has a target or a viable market. When your talking a focus near or above 40k it not only loses those markets but puts itself in its own insurance class since insurers aren't going to want to foot the bill of a high cost replacement.
I can see a few collectors maybe buying, but thats it. They just need to kill this thing with fire now...
