Ford Focus RS500It has been years since any compact car has caught my eye, but there’s something about Ford’s new Focus RS500 that’s pretty appealing–like the 350 horsepower coming from the tiny 2.5-liter engine.

Unfortunately, the top of the line RS500 model is a Euro-Spec only model that we won’t get to drool over on these shores. If it helps, you can watch this video of one being upfitted by hand after it comes off Ford’s assembly line. Didn’t realize the flat black paint was actually a vinyl wrap.
