Go ahead and gloat, you damn Europeans. While we're driving past our Ford dealerships, seeing the same, tired Focus — many of whose parts are contemporary of the Reagan administration — you and your football hooligans are getting a range of Evo-fighting Foci that sport 300 horsepower and (rumor has it) all-wheel-drive. It's the next-gen Focus RS, which traces its bloodline from the rally-tested Escort RS Cosworth, and it's coming in late 2007 or thereabouts. Just try to refrain from leaving burnouts all over Lichtenstein. They hate that.
