Escaping the Office with the Ford Focus ST
It’s not Monday, but it may as well feel like it, especially if you commute, or if, when you get to the office, you hear the ticking clock, the pecking of keyboards and crumpling of paper, or the same humdrum tendencies of your co-workers over and over, as their cell phones chirp and buzz over the sound of gnawing, munching jaws and throat-clearing, hacking-coughing fits. You’re not alone, though. That symphony of annoyance grates on the Ford Focus ST sound symposer as well. Watch as he navigates away from the office for a mid-morning stroll to enjoy the redline rush of the Focus’ 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder’s engine along his favorite European country lanes. Live vicariously through him, from your windowless office cubicle, and imagine yourself behind the wheel of the Blue Oval’s newest hot hatch. We’re doing it, too, except we’re headed for the beach.
