  1. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    I doubt highly on a race track this car would beat a vette but It would beat a Vette on a road course, whcih it did.
    This car is a good indication as to what to expect from the 2004 Cosworth focus.
    Great acr and I'm sure would give the Evo7 and wrx sti a real good run and possibly beat<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    i really think this ford focus would lose the the vette becouse the vette is a race car and this car is a p.o.s.

  5. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    WRC focuses make the same amount of power, yes? somehow i think this car is somewhat modeled after those rally cars, that wing makes it look like a 206 sort of.
     
  6. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    NO WRC Cars make about 20 more kw of power or 30hp aproxamately.
    This car Rules though, take on any EVo or STi 22B.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    This car did not beat the Vette. If your talking about the David & Goliath article in the April 2001 issue of Motor Trend, the Vette beat it by a full second! This car is incredibly ugly, and looks like all those ricers from fast & furious! This car does not beat the Vette by a long shot!<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    Here are the stats showing that it didn't beat the Vette.
    We'll start with the Focus.
    0-60 5.44
    0-100 12.58
    1/4 mile (sec/mph) 13.57/107.4
    0-100-0(sec.) 16.97
    braking,in feet (60-0/100-0) 113/321

    And the Vette,
    0-60 4.4
    0-100 10.46
    1/4 (sec/mph) 12.57/113.96
    0-100-0(sec.) 14.51
    braking, in feet (60-0/100-0) 103/294

    Remember that this is a 2001 Vette that they tested, the 2002 has much better stats. If you look at the numbers, it doesnt look like the Focus beat the Vette! Looks more like the Vette kicked the Focuses ass in every area!<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. This is the most amazing compact sports car ever.... 300+hp now that is a lot for a little hatchback.. nice kit but the spoiler is kinda different its bigger than the car.... man these focus's kick some ass
     
  10. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    somehow i dont think ide race this against a vette... although... i would race it against a 206 and an EVOvII... in stock trim at that... heh... so this is why they canned the escort... =0}<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    Hey guys first of all, the focus beat the vette, yeh it did so accept it, and stop argueing abuot it, second of all the focus is a quick little lightweight car, and look at the power. it probably would not beat the vettes on the race track, no but still, wow it actually was tested and there are results that it won. But this is a very well done focus, the vette people should just accept it, c'mon guys don't make up your stat to try and prove that test wrong. The focus is cool, and it beat a vette, yes i'm so stoacked. The focus is a good ford, they do make some into rally cars, so sit down relax and accept that this ford is a good car, a great car, it beat a vette, what a good effort for a small little hatchback <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    you are missing one stat the time on the road course. anyone want to guess why he didnt post it? It was because the mighty 5.7 corvette zo6 lost to the little 2 liter focus. ouch bet that is embarrasing<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    This is damn concept car. The change it will ever come into production is nil. A turbocharged inline 4 that gives off 304 bhp with a light weight focus is obviously going to be fast. But it no way compares to a well designed and balanced sports car like the corvette. All of the mods does not make it look good either. If any company produces a concept with a turbocharged engine and a very light weight car, it could probably beat a mclaren. So stop bitchin over a supercharged concept car.
     
  15. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    its not totally a concept they built it out of performance parts in their bin. they said you could do the same thing for 17,000 i think + one focus. and just because your a vette fan dont knock something else. i bet you tell everyone else their religion is wrong too. <!-- Signature -->

    Ahhh..yeah you are right. He did miss that one piece of information. Hmmmm I wonder why. And why is it that Motor Trend Raced both cars, and according to Motor Trend...The Focus OutRan and OutPerformed the Vette. But yet, he states that it didnt. He was probably there, and he probably even raced both cars at the same time, Himself against himself. Thats pretty interesting. Some people will even go as far as to argue what the professionals have concluded and reknown themselves right while everyone is wrong. In the world of business what he did would be considered "Number shaving". In the defense of the Vette, the focus is a concept car with parts from Fords racing department though. And we all know how successful Fords Racing TeamS and Racing DepartmentS are. I am a big fan of ford and also a fan of the vette, just in case some one comes and starts acting the fool by saying..."Oh yeah well blah blah blah blah..etc.

    i'm going to add one more point do these vette loving- ford dissing people relize this is a FRONT wheel drive car and fords getting 152 horses per liter when vettes like the C5-R pulls only 86 per liter
     
  19. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    Someone said that this is just concept...

    not anymore...

    they have started producing them by order... the concept title is now off of it... but they are still running into oil leaking problems...
     
  20. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    this is such a sick car...i'd probably take it over a zo6
     
  21. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    in looks no way it looks like a escoto i think that if they are going to make this hunk of crap then they should just put gtr on the back and take off the the body kit so i doesnt look like its going to toake out the death star fleet!!! also when you add on al those parts your relablity goes strat to hell.

    there are things you have to takein to consideration when you compare these two cars
    the first one is that the vette is in stock form and that the focus which is a economy car has around 17 thousand dollars in mods when you do that to a car you compramise reliablity
    with one mod to the vette a super charger for around 3 grand you can double the horsepower you boys must relize that its alot hard to "sup" up a econmy car as opposed to a sports car


    P.s i dont care if it might win the vette on track it still looks like a shit!!!
     
  22. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    Dude the vette is a tank! Look at the power to weight ratio of these 2 cars. With this much HP this car should haul ass!
     
  23. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    I was gonna say the same thing, but noticed that you already did. Only about 25% of the people here know their fair share about automobiles.
     
  24. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    this is a very nice car, which im sure would keep a mustang honest, but its the cornering that separates the men from the boys
    what did motor trend have to say about its handling?
     
  25. Re: WOW this focus can beat a Vette!!!

    Idon't remember, but I'll check for you.
