Here is my 2002 Ford SVT Lightning doing a quick 0-100 run. Got some really
bad wheel spin off the launch.
Westridge Buick 2003 Ford Focus SVT
Westridge is excited to present this 2003 Ford Focus SVT
APPEARANCE: The SVT Focus takes an understated European
approach to contemporary sport compact styling, with no lurid
graphics or giant wings. Stealth is good. At a glance, it appears to
be just another Focus hatchback. Look closer to see the flat ``air
dam'' front fascia, with inset foglamps, and smoked headlight
coverings at the front. Flared rocker panels are found at the sides of
the three-door model, but not the five-door. Both have a ``diffuser-
look'' rear fascia, an oversize Exhaust tip, and a small ducktail
spoiler at the rear edge of the roof.
COMFORT: Like the regular ZX3 or ZX5, the SVT Focus has a
remarkable amount of interior for its small size. Four normal people
will fit, more easily in the five-door, with its better rear-seat access.
The SVT interior is of the same basic design as that of a ZX3 or
ZX5, but upgraded. It's made for driving, with the correct position
easily attainable by drivers of any size. The supportive front sports
seats have a grippy cloth center section and leather-trimmed side
bolsters, the steering wheel has a thick, contoured, comfortably
graspable rim and is adjustable for both tilt and reach. The pedals
have contemporary aluminum and rubber trim; more importantly,
they are correctly placed for easy heel-and-toe shifting. Shift action
is slick and smooth. The instrument panel features black-on-silver
instruments with SVT badging. The rear seat has the same cloth as
the front, but vinyl replaces leather. It is split 60/40 for extra cargo
ability, but the trunk area, protected from view by an integrated
cover, is larger than that of some other popular hatchbacks.
SAFETY: The SVT Focus has Ford's ``Personal Safety
System''(tm), which includes an electronic crash severity sensor,
dual-stage front air bags, and front safety belt sensors and energy
ROADABILITY: SVT has increased the spring rates 10 percent at
the front and 20 percent at the rear compared to the standard
Focus, retuned the shocks for better roll damping, and increased the
diameter of the front stabilizer bar. The result is agile handling with
good turn-in and grip, and good ride comfort even with 215/45
WR17 tires. Only the most hard-core enthusiast or serious
autocrosser would want to stiffen it further.
PERFORMANCE: Tuning 1A: The 2.0-liter Zetec block gets
improved gas flow, stiffer valve springs, variable valve timing on
the intake camshaft, and a dual-stage intake manifold. Lightweight,
high-compression pistons further increase power, while forged steel
connecting rods help ensure engine integrity. The result is peak 170
hp at 7,000 rpm and 145 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm, but raw specs
don't even begin to tell the story. This little gem has major torque,
unlike many of its competitors. It's good right off idle and very,
very strong in the midrange, right where it is most useful in any sort
of driving from city traffic to competition. That, and the smooth
six-speed gearbox, mean that the SVT Focus is easy and fun to
drive just about anywhere. As a bonus, fuel economy is good and
emissions are low.
CONCLUSIONS: Ford's SVT tuning wizards have taken the
already enjoyable Focus hatchback and made into a true pocket
rocket, with no loss of civilized comfort or everyday usability.

2013 Ford Focus ST 0-60 MPH Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Focus ST is one of the best
American hot hatches on the market today. Unlike many economy cars that are
Boosted, turbo-charged and lowered to look fast...the 2013
Focus ST is genuinely fast and trackable. In other words it is a
comfortable on the track, as it is not the road. That's because Ford has
done their homework and tuned and turned the 2013 Focus ST into a proper
sports car. In another fun and informative TFLcar drive and review, Nathan
takes the fastest focus from 0-60 to find out just how fast it really is at
a mile above sea level.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline Meet the current Focus ST's dad, the
original SVT Focus. Often a forgotten model in the Focus line-up, it was
really ahead of its time back in the early 2000's. Today, this models
interior really hasn't aged well in our eyes, but the exterior styling and
driving dynamics still impress. If you happen to find one of these rare
vehicles on the used car market, snatch it up while you can.
