Focus RS500 - Anywhere but the US
Once again Ford teases us in the US by launching killer vehicles abroad. The Ford Focus RS500 is a beast. The turbocharged 2.5L 5-cylinder pumps out 345 horsepower and 339 lb.ft. of torque. It has a top speed of 165mph and gets to 100kmh in 5.4 seconds (that's 0-to-62mph for you non-metric guys.)
Only 500 are being produced, and they are allocated in even-smaller quantities to various European countries. You can track which countries got 'em and how many are still available at Ford Focus RS500
click on "The Map." At the time of this blog only France and Germany had any left. Somehow despite the banking turmoil in Greece, they managed to find buyers for the five (yes 5) cars Ford allocate to that country.
