Ford wants to move more vehicles in the UK. Hell, it wants to move more vehicles all the time in any region, obviously, and in this case it just so happens to have the wider variety of the performance-oriented picks for its European buyers, who were previously only stuck with the single choice.
That would be the Ford Focus RS, the longtime staple of the European rally stage. Other American performance Fords like a Mustang were only imported into the UK one Bullit DVD at the time unless the unusually avid fan was willing to spend extra dough.
All that changed when the Ford’s genius bean counters thought that it might just be the good idea to swap what side the steering wheel was on, add the independent rear suspension, send it over to Europe to see if any Petrolheads would bite the bait. And bite they have.
With the greater presence in Europe thanks to the fact that a Mustang can be purchased from European dealerships, the pony vehicles has been propelled to the top of the list, and becoming the world’s best-selling sports car.
European buyers, however, and may be wondering which of the Blue Oval’s performance vehicles they should spend their savings on.
Is it a muscle car with the big bruising V8 and line lock or a turbocharged rally racer that will tear it up in the corners or shred its rubber in the drift mode?
It could come down to power, with a Mustang making 460 hp at the rear and the Focus RS coping with 350 going to the all four wheels. The choice hard, and equally as hard is going wrong with either car.
