Agreed. My neighbor here in Iowa City has one, a blue Focus SVT. While it looks ok, the thing is slower than hell. I'm Sorry but my Jeep beat its 7.7 second 0-60 time.

I know about the lighting differences, The US Focus has two orange sidelights in the radiator grill, that or they are the indicators, I just assumed they were sidelights due to moth US cars having lights like that (like Volvo's have....on the side of them...)

And I didn't see Top Gear on Sunday night if that's the episode you are refering to!

Yeah, because 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are the only measures of whether a small sporting car is good or not...



Hell, my Fiat's slower than that, and it's still a blast to drive.
