We see them every day in shopping-mall parking lots across America. We rent them during trips to Dallas. We see them advertised by dealers for low, low monthly payments. We have friends who drive a Focus. We’ve considered buying a Focus.

The Focus ST-R isn’t just a Focus. This is an honest-to-goodness race car launched by Ford Racing back in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder and has a full FIA-certified roll cage, racing brakes and a track-tuned suspension.
