    As if the RS wasn't tasty enough take a look at this! I'm in love, especially with the colour

    I wonder how many owners will have it stolen from them... Criminals will love this, it will either be car jacked or stolen from a house burglary!! Nice bit of kit though

    Why is it called the RS500 if it only has 345bhp?

    Nice

    But the dream is still a Nissan GT-R

    Should be expensive then.

    exactly what i was thinking! or if someone keyed the matt black paint it would look bloody awful

    it would be worth buying a tracker and maybe a bodyguard for it

    I don't have a car, I can't even drive :lol:
    Love cars but can't really afford one so there's no incentive.

    Ahhhhhhh Limited to 500 - got it.

    But only 101 making it to the UK

    Guess I'm sticking with Golf Gti a little longer.....

    Nice looking car, shame it's a Ford.

    dont talk rubbish ford have a range now from top to bottom second to none … dont talk rubbish ford have a range now from top to bottom second to none



    In terms of what? Cause it certainly isn't reliability.

    well i can only speak as i find every body i know with a focus swears by … well i can only speak as i find every body i know with a focus swears by them and the ford ka the smax and others just never had a problem with them,because you might of had a faulty clutch on a cortina years ago doesnt make them all bad ;-)



    My wife had 2 focuses (is that the plural?:lol:) via the AA for her driving school, and both were under 6 months old - both had their problems, but the worst was the terrible fuel consumption.

    I'm not actually basing my opinion on that, more on the JD power survey etc, where Ford tend to be in the lower end of the table every year, they aren't that reliable on the grander scale, and never really had a great name for reliability historically.

    2009 table (getting worse)

    For cars, the Focus came in 70th equal overall - not great, really.

    That does look very mean. Think it's the black paint with black wheels. Would love one!
