Default X-Ray Ford Focus ST Black Edition




The folks over at Jalopnik are as confused as us with a Ford press release in French talking of a new X-Ray Ford Focus ST Black Edition. The X-Ray Ford Focus ST Black Edition supposedly celebrates the hit 1980s show “Knight Rider.”

Whatever the case is with this car, we like the fact that it is powered by a 2.5 liter 5-cylinder turbo engine that develops 225 horsepower. That gives this little beast the ability to go from 0-62 mph in 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 150 mph.


From what we understand Ford will produce 50 examples of the X-Ray Ford Focus ST Black Edition, which will ride on 19-inch black alloy wheels.

Well this is the closest thing the Germans can get to a KITT.

The show Knight Rider is like the number one rated television show of all time in Germany

Knight Rider makes a return next year

yeah, this thing will be HUGE in Germany. Kinda scary, really. If only it came with an autographed picture of Hasselhoff...
