That is one good looking Focus. Ford should look into making a package looking very much like this one which, I presume, is the 2009 Ford Focus Coupe by FSWerks for SEMA.

This past Sunday afternoon I was at my local Ford dealer just looking at some of the new Flexes when I ran across a Black 2dr Focus SES with a blacked out grille and tinted headlights and I have to say it was a pretty good looking little car I kind of liked it.

This is one sweet looker. I like you 2b2 notice that something is off here with the body. I am thinking the side holes?

Mchicha, I said 'semi-rhetorical' cuz honestly not sure if part of the improvement involved sheetmetal or not.
Here are couple pix of another show-Focus I found
imho the 1st looks like the the ^hot^ one
the 2nd looks "normal"
yet these are of the same car - supporting the good-photo idea
HOT:
weird, huh?
I saw one (a sedan) without the side vents today and it occured to me to go back and look at the 2009 image releases.
Look here,

Ya they got rid of the fake vents on all the models but the upscale SEL and they added rear headrests which I think was a great example of Ford listening to its fans/customers.

They need an S model with lowered stance, some different alloys (prefarably WRC types) and some fancy skirts.

DUDE! < polite form of [email protected]!!!
that Focus is sooo HOT...
...gotta ask (semi-rhetorically) Did they DO something to the sheetmetal or just know how to USE a camera?

thanks, Tahoe!!! [rightclickSave] I hadn't seen that shot before
1) it is lowered
2) has bigger offset wheels - nice 18" wheels
3) has ground effects kit
4) yes the angle and lighting is flattering

however - these are TINY changes to a car - most kids to that - lip kit, drop and wheels - the rest is stock focus.

It's just that the roof looked a bit different to me also
maybe that's the windshield applique - first time I've thought one looked that good

I agree 2b2. I thought the same thing to me the roof looks more rounded than the normal Focus but after looking at several pix of the regular stock Focus it does have the same shape.

not too be contrary, but i still think the american Focus is fugly. i'm not saying it's a bad car, i think it's the equal of any small car sold in the states, and the Sync system is pretty darn cool, it's just awkward and dated looking. i still think the original '98/'99 Focus hatches were much more contemporary looking. i can't wait for the euro models to show up with their up-to-date looks and platforms.
