today we continue with Focus week.

This is my heart's desire... the Focus SVT. SVT stands for Special Vehicles Team, it's Ford's high-performance division. They make a Mustang Cobra (Some years a Cobra R) and an SVT F-150 Lightning. They also at one point made a Contour SVT.

While the regular Focus ZX3 makes 130 hp and 135 ft-lbs of torque, the SVT Focus makes 170 hp and 145 ft-lbs of torque. The SVT Focus has larger brake rotors, tighter suspension, and a heightened boost curve on the power steering makes for more responsive handling. The car sits on 17-inch wheels with 45-series tires.







Note that in none of these pictures is the car sitting still. I wouldn't stop just for a picture either, I'd drive that thing till the wheels fell off.
