<IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/news/uploads/ford/wolf.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Why feature a Ford Focus on Swedespeed? In case you've missed it, the Ford Focus ST is about as close to a Volvo as any Ford has gotten since the blue oval invested in Volvo. The Focus itself is P1-based, meaning it shares component sets with everything from the the S40 and V50 to the new C70 and just-shown C30. At the heart of the ST beats the same turbocharged Volvo 5-cylinder fitted under the hoods of the Focus' aforementioned Swedish cousins. Given Wolf Racing is announcing a 300 hp kit for the P1 spec T5 engine for this Ford, we found this news more than applicable to S40, V50 and C70 owners on this site, as well as all of those thinking of putting a deposit down on the hot new C30.<p><A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/news/publish/Ford_News/article_883.html" TARGET="_blank"><b> Full Story </b></A>

I've been following the C30 for three years now and have been saying for some time that the C30 is as close to the Focus ST (in a good way) that we will ever get in the States.<p>

Re: (Shomare)

When the concept came out, our biggest referral website for a few days was FocalJet, a Focus website run by a friend of ours. SVT owners seem aware of this fact as well.<p>Some may not like the shared componentry between Volvo and Ford's other marques, but honestly it can only be a good thing for the aftermarket as this leaves more cars and more owners for aftermarket companies to sell their products to.
