  1. Looks like a bashed crab, goes like **** though

    What an ugly piece of shit!!! nice power figures though he he he. looks like something from Star Trek. i would still own it though
     
  2. whens the last time you seen a bashed crab?
     
  3. I'm not a big fan of the looks either, but this can was designed as an import-fighter. I also am not a fan of sport compacts, but those that like them usualy make modifications to their little Honda Civics to make them look much like this. That's why it's so ugly.
    I would still love to have one. Car&Driver did a comparison test between it and a Corvette Z06. Amazingly enough the FR200 actually hung with the Z06. The Vette had better acceleration, as well as being easier to accelerate. However, on a road course, the FR200 actually beat the Vette. That is impressive!! A four-banger beating the awesome Z06. That is impressive engineering!
     
  4. ZO6 Vette......impressive?!?! *tries to hold back the gags!!* This Focus is a beast....especially for a FWD!! And once again it shows the advantages of small cars over big 5-6L V8 dinosaurs. C yas!! Mafs!!

    P.S. Don't you wish it had 4WD.........and street registered!? And had WRC parts in it!! ;) C yas!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. its a great car,
    and I live in western B.C Canada i see my share of crab,
    it doesn't look like a bashed crab at all <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    this car was created for the sole purpose of sitting still while people look at it.

    Ford Racing built 3, one for show, and 2 for testing and development,
    one of them quickly had a oil leak which lubed the clutch and stopped it from transforming torque.

    front wheel drive,
    18x8 inch ford racing wheels,
    13 inch cross drilled and vented 1999 mustang cobra rotors with cobra 2 piston sliding calipers,
    horsepower 304 hp@6750 rpm,
    torque 285 lb-ft@3500 rpm
    transverse front engine,torsen limited slip differential,
    prototype centerforce clutch, European MTX75 transmission case, Ford Racing MTX75 gears.

    but to see the rest read the august 2001 issue of sport compact car magazine...

  7. Thanks,

    I'll have to read that one, what issue of Motor Trend was it ??

    i havn't seen anything else about it in sports compact,
    just stuff about like WRX's/Neons and stuff like that.

     
  8. it is a bad ass car no dout. but the only prob is the fact that you won't see it on the streets. it will not pass smog in cali the way it sits. so if it is produced then it will be a tuned down ver and that really sux

    Ok buddy, bring your Porsche GT3 to the track and we'll race. What's that? Wallet too tight for a german car? That's what I thought!! Try buying a 20,000 dollar Ford or Chevy that can easily beat any of these overpriced machines in a price/hp contest.
     
  18. So...wow, after you put every part known to man on a little 4 cylinder car it can beat a stock corvette. I mean I just don't see what the big deal is. This car also isn't just ugly it's FUGLY. Who in their right mind who drive this tin can?
     
  19. First, it was a Z06 and second, how can you put every part known to man in a little Focus, you put a bunch of really nice parts in it.

    I think it looks great, put looks are opinion, and I won't argue if you think it's ugly or even fugly.
