Fastest car in the world!

Illustration for article titled Fastest car in the world!

I’m going to spend a few days down in Wellington and decided to drive there. Because I was tired of the shit Japanese cars you can get for really cheap rentals here I jumped upon this deal. It’s 2014 Focus with the 2.0l petrol, 170 hp, but a 6-speed auto... (at least it’s not a CVT). First impression so far : the gearbox is neither bad nor good. It’s just average. I would have preferred a manual, though the Ford Powershift makes a decent job. Also needs more torque! It makes 20 more hp than my parents Passat, and weighs probably 500kg less, but it has way less kick. Long live torquey Diesels!!
