Focus ST-H Rent-A-Car Coming to U.S.? Whoa.

One of the foremost reasons might be the ability to rent a Ford Focus ST-H for €90 (approximately $119 USD) a day. It’s a beautiful black and gold-striped hot hatch with 18” gold metallic wheels that comes with the 250 horsepower you’ve come to expect from the ST.
