A first-gen Ford Focus received a rear-wheel drive conversion and a V8 engine transplant.

The owner of this plain-looking Focus is from Holland, Michigan and has decided to sell the car for 18,000 USD. For this money you'll be getting a truly special Focus as the car now has a rear-wheel drive layout and is powered by a 302 cubic inch Ford V8 engine rated at 340 bhp (253 kW).

The owner of this sleeper Focus said he invested 27,500 USD in the car, with 6,500 USD for the vehicle itself and another 21,000 USD in parts. It has SVT alloys, a C4 transmission and SVT power disc brakes, while the body and interior have remained stock and are “in excellent condition.”

If a RWD V8 Focus for 18,000 USD is not your cup of tea, maybe a Toyota-Supra BMW M5 (E39) for 22,000 USD will do the trick.
