As pointed out by some already on this forum - the sad part is that with that crap they released it's possible Shelby f..ked us all... because now Ford will probably look how we don't want to pay extra $15k for stickers + poor appearance package and think "oh well, RS wouldn't sell in US"

Dear Ford - how about try another $15k package , but one that is $20 in stickers and $14,980 in engine work and performance mods. I know the feedback will be much different from our community.


I was really waiting on that Shelby since yesterday, hoping it would be worth spending money on. But how it turned out. I'd pick ST3 over that Shelby even if they were the same price.

I'll second that. Big let down.

Ford, I will buy an RS if it gets released in the US. I will not buy a tape stripe special.

What an absolute embarrassment. Is this a joke? Whoever voted "win" is obviously trolling. Give me an ST and 15grand to spend on it and I am sure I would wipe this shit stain off the road. Carrol is spinning in his grave I bet.

Carroll was well aware of the project. Exactly how much say he had in it I have no idea.

4. Will the Shelby name possibly make it to a new Focus or Fiesta?
Yeah! That's what I'm working on right now. I think you're going to see the industry going completely to small engines with turbochargers. That's the only way you can get the mileage that the government is going to be demanding.

They need to focus on getting the next rs right and stop wasting time in things like these. That car is a joke, can't believe that they had the balls to put it in the auto show.

I'm just amazed that they had a REVEAL on a car with factory HP. It should have been sitting uncovered on the floor. It's a special edition, no doubt. But it isn't 15 large(or more) special.
