The Ford Focus ST, yes, that hot little hatch that we’ve been drooling about, was the focus – no pun intended – of a drive-around video made by the Blue Oval’s Europe division to promote the new car.

The video looks to have been done professionally with the artistic shots coupled with the electric beats complementing the pure awesomeness of the Focus ST’s Tangerine Scream paint job that seems to glisten in the presence of the sun.

If there’s one little detail that we think Ford should have added, at the very least, is that they let us listen to the sound of that 2.0-liter Ecoboost engine it’s supposed to come in. Really, it’s not too much to ask, right?

When you have a Focus that packs in 247 horsepower, you’re going to want to listen to that power-packed engine, which, unfortunately, the makers of this video, neglected to even consider.

Give it a watch; it’s still cool enough to use up a minute of your life.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I really have no idea why Ford treats her huge American fan base and market with such contempt.
