In America you can’t rent a Focus ST-H because it is a manual
In America you can’t rent a Focus ST-H because it is a manual

In Europe you can rent a Focus ST-H but in America it may not be possible because the average Joe who appears at the rental counter may not know how to drive with a manual. The figures will never improve until the Americans sort can out the clutch thing.  

 For the past year Ford has offered the 252hp manual Focus ST-H with through the rental outlets of Hertz in certain European cities and they have also planned to let the Fiesta ST-H in Netherland available on rent in near future and a relevant announcement has been also made by them. A stateside move would take some time because Ford is not offering the automatic Focus ST and it will take a lot of effort from the rental company to find a way for continual clutch replacement.  


The bone in contention is an n normal Ford Focus ST with classic gold stripes over black painted Recaro option.  The Shelby GT350H donned the same before it. In these vehicles the massive torque steer is offered as standard. However don’t go looking for the front-drive turbo at the Hertz nearby you, in place you can rent a whole lot of adrenaline pumpers including Corvette Stingray, GT Premium, Penske Mustang GT, and Camaro SS convertible or coupe.
