If they made a more subtle looking type R I would have bought one like an AMG 45 that gives you the option of a more stealth look without all the aero, fine if your a young but being how shall we say a more mature driver I thought I might look a little out of place driving one, there is no doubt the Type R is a great car but the fast and furious look is not for me, but if they ever tone down the looks a little well who knows, having said that the Toyota Yaris GR is looking tempting so I'm not ready for a hearing aid beige corolla yet!Yep, 0-100 is really pointless for these cars.
Test drove a Focus RS when I bought my Type R and while it wasn't without its charms, when I tried to make it change direction it felt like Tubby McTubarse with nearly 200 extra kgs.
By comparison the Type R was like a scalpel. And once you get up to speed even AWD and those extra killerwatts couldn't really give in gear acceleration to match the Type R.
