Bet you had no idea that Ford's urban compact could be so mean.

The Focus RS500 is capable of hitting 60mph in 5.4 seconds, due to upgrades featuring a bigger air filter and intercooler, a larger-diameter exhaust downpipe, an uprated fuel pump and an all-new software calibration. Even the exterior's been beefed up for this release, sporting a special film (by 3M of Frankfurt, Germany) that's been applied over Ford’s standard metallic paint-job, giving the vehicle that Gotham City-ready "Bat-Hatchback" look.

The only drawback seems to be that this limited edition curb-banger is to be released solely in Europe. Strange than an American car company finally releases a whip to compete with the massive street import market, and only drops it overseas.

You're not helping the economy, Ford.
