Ford unofficially said that the Focus ST, the new one based the 2011 platform (2012 model year if you’re in the US), will launch (market launch with deliveries and everything) by the end of this month, though the loss of Capito might have put them off track.
But the first global performance car from Ford is making its way to China via the 2012 Beijing Auto Show which starts towards the end of the month. Under the “One Ford” directive, this performance car will be the same from London to Shanghai, meaning Chinese customers will also be able to enjoy 250 hp from the 2.0-liter Ecoboost. We expect this highly anticipated hatch to deal with the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in just under 6.5 seconds.

"The ST will be the performance flagship of our new Focus range, and we are excited to provide our enthusiast customers the opportunity to see it Beijing," said Nigel Harris, vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford Motor China. "The ST represents an ultimate expression of Focus driving quality and performance."

"The Focus ST will be a serious driving machine, and our design and engineering teams have developed a purposeful exterior combined with a cockpit that blends sporting function with impressive comfort,” said Harris.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
