Almost $15,000 and no extra power

Shelby Unveils Special Edition Focus ST

When you tell me Shelley has unveiled a new vehicle, I expect something with interesting styling and loads of additional power. Sadly, only one of those expectations was met when Shelby unveiled the new Shelby Focus ST at the North American International Auto Show. If you're the sort of custom car owner that wants more power, Shelby left the engine of the Focus ST completely stock.

That means the car has 252 ponies and is festooned with visual upgrades. The car looks good, don't get me wrong, with a new hood featuring heat extraction louvers, new wheels, a custom interior, new suspension, bigger brakes, and custom graphics.

The really bad part of this for me is that the Shelby package starts at $14,995 on top of the at least $23,700 you spend on the base model Focus ST. So for the price of another nice used car, all we get are visual upgrades. Fail.
