    The front reminds me of an RSX:



    The rear reminds me of a 2004 Lancer:




    Those are some impressive numbers

    Wow i never thought ford was capable of thinking up such a cool car. Man they don't know their heads from their asses sometimes. Why the hell can't they release a car like this in North America. What do they get? ("they" being Europe, Australia etc.) the Focus RS, Ford falcon, Puma, KaWhat do we get? Mercury Maruader and Focus SVT. Good job ford you weenies.

    How long has this car been around for? I've had a pic of it for a few years I think.

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
