What do you think of this? I'm getting a bit bored of the mkV, but this should be nice when it finally comes out (two doors are not even out yet):





0-60 6 secs
Top speed 150
240 bhp
Supposedly, the fastest FWD production car??

That new astra is sexy. Given the choice, I'd rather have that than the new Golf GTI.

Dont know? Watched the BTCC on sunday though and you could do a far bit to them and the bhp is good enough for a fwd car.

The 3door went on Sale last weekend!

I cant wait for the VXR, even though I cant afford one, I have my name down for the 3day test drive, even though I not meant to have one coz I'm under 25, but I pulled a few strings.

Its certainly a very nice car, its gonna be a type R beater.

is that daz bein blonde, he means the current honda civic type-R. Thats its intended competition, ford need to match it now tho with a fast focus, im talkin 240+BHP. Id like a VXR i think theyre mint but id rather have a cossie any day

Just say well done vauchall, makin some nice cars in the VXR range, Ford need to catch up and make a Focus Cossie and a Racing Ka, A RWD V8 mondie would rock ass too

Judging by the specs, my 13 year old car (as well as the 18 year old Astra GTE) could keep up with the Civic Type R. And I paid a fraction of the price. Tell you what, there's a lot of those new TypeR's about on the roads. How much are they?

Those Focus RS are very nice though. I can't remember but I think Ford bought back Cosworth, so I reckon there might be a Focus Cosworth.

im pretty sure there will be a cossie as cosworth have modded many cars,even mercs. So i dont think it matters that ford dont own cosworth, they may still make a foci anyway.But if ford have bought it then they better get of there batties and make some new cossies
