Biggest rip off of all time get the Hennessy package for around 1400$ and you get the same results just not the badging. But I'll take the extra 10k that you spent on your Shelby package and make my car a monster....just paying for a name Tisk tisk Shelby smh

I guess the old axiom, "Different strokes for different folks" would apply here. As for me, spending $40k on a Focus.....any Focus would be a total waste of money. I just can't justify the cost, not when there's so many other excellent cars on the market for the same amount of money, but then again, to each his own.

I'm with you. I love my focus but no way would I spend 40K for one. I brought my Titanium for half that. If I had an ST, I would just go the with the HPE stuff if anything.
