SVTF in Hemmings Muscle Machines, June '04

A friend at work just brought me the June '04 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines.
Wouldn't you know it, on pages 52-57 they feature/test an '04 SVT3Door.
Sonic Blue, with all options sans Euro. Hmmmm sounds!
All I can find is that subscribtion page on-line, so you'll have to pick up the issue if you're interested.
Most particularly, I liked this statement.
Seven grand does not arrive with turbocharged quickness, but the trip up the revs
has a delightful mechanical quality about it that invites repeated beatings--we mean performances.
Keep the revs up, bite into the turns, lather, rinse, repeat.
It's addictive, repeatable, and an easy way to have fun at speeds that won't get you arrested.
This is the Focus SVT's bread and butter.
The times quoted with their (winter package-traction control) equipped car:
0-60 - 7.4sec
1/4 mile - 15.8sec@88.9mph
Top Speed - 134mph
