Found this, I assume its Auto Express, hence the gap for the fold! Is it just me or is this a seriously good looking car? Obviously a photoshop but the concept is very attractive...

Not quite sure about the rear spoiler but generally, a very nice car.

When the pictures were first released, I was in love with the original Focus Cosworth Concept and went investigating its whereabouts. Was told that it would never be available for a member of the public and would probably eventually be destroyed.

Mmmmm...

Seriously, its a focus..., a nice quick one, but still a focus - we signed up here for a reason didnt we?

Yes we did! I'd rather have a 32. [:)] I'd never have a Focus after the problems he has had with his, thats saying something considering the amount of time mine has been in the garage in the last 6 months.

It looks ok. Nothing special.

Read auto express in the supermarket yesterday - it said that in future there will be the RS versions of Ford cars and the ST range which is going to be re-positioned to take on VW's GTI.

It also had a like up of the cars Ford are bringing out this year - what looks very interesting is the Fiesta RS - apparently it will use a modified version of the ST170 engine.

Just you Mike that thing is hideous - spoiler is a complete mess!

It's funny reading the article though cos they say it will be 240bhp and they're struggling to get the power down in fwd so it will be 4wd. Sounds like they haven't sorted out their torque steer problem to me. And 240 isn't exactly a big power hike over the Focus RS is it.

Obviously minus the spoiler, not really my style is it. The actual shape of the car is much more modern and individual than the blob that is the MKV...the latters alright but nothing special, this has nice hard lines and a bit of character to it. Just MO

I've seen the normal new model Focus and it really is a Leon from the side.

In Auto Express Ford say they want the ST new model Focus to take on the VW Golf GTI. Can it compete??!!

Fair point Mike, I just can't get past looking at that awful spoiler.

I agre, just looks stupid. Ford have always done that though, the Escort and Sierra Cosworth spoilers were just stupid...and TBH this car will probably not be built, just like the first Focus Cosworth
