Do want! its about damn time we started to get the cars Europe has had for years. Now if we just get the fiat 500 abarth, and perhaps the focus RS...I might just have to own 4-5 cars

they did a little math wrong, if you figure it out its 0-60 in about 5.5 or so, still quite quick, but figure in about 30mpg, AWD, and that stock 290hp output without mods and its got a lot of room...

Now hopefully ford and fiat both get the clue and bring out their hot hatches here. I would love to go to a gathering/hangout on a Saturday and see the place nothing but sweet hot hatches from all over the world...all laughing at the mustang idiots.

Thats one thing our subies kind of fall flat on, get up above 120 or so and its...slooooooooo as hell. I would love to see Subaru gear somthing taller, go for top speed.

I love VWs, I had 2 MKIVs before my STi, with a T3/T4 turbo on the highway against a stage 2 STi, bye bye STi. They're laughable from a dig though.

The one I am really looking forward to is the little fiat 500. Man you can toss that little beast around corners and do some crazy stuff in it.

Saw a few Focus RSs at Rally Finland. SOOOOOO much more badass in person if that's at all possible. Not going to get this one in the states, but we're supposed to get the next gen. Euro Focus here which gives us hope for a future RS model here in the states.

BADASS:

Overbear, I didn't see this figure, I found a 270hp, but not 290hp! Where did you see that?
