Tantalizing as they may look under the show lights, we most often experience cars out in the real world, and they don't always look the same as they did on stage. To help us out, Ford of Europe as released video of the new Focus ST in action.
Unfortunately, it's not serious action. The clip released on YouTube yesterday looks like tarted-up B-roll footage of the car cruising around some desert roads, not tearing up a track. Still, it's nice to see the car out in the wild where it belongs.
It'd be even nicer if we could actually hear the car, though. After all, Ford promised us "an intoxicating cocktail of exhilarating performance and handling accompanied by an addictive sound." Instead, we get mild techno that sounds like it was lifted from a video game menu screen. Still, any running footage is better than none at all.
