The Ford Focus 2012 Joins The Sweeney
For those that don't remember the television series ‘The Sweeney', it was a hit during the 1970's and was a British Police drama that focused upon two members of the flying squad. The main roles were orginially played by the late John Thaw and Dennis Waterman.
A remake of the series is just beginning to be filmed around the UK and will be starring Ray Winstone and Ben Drew, AKA Plan B. In the original series, the transport of choice was the Ford Consul GT or the Ford Granada, and news has just been released that the producers have decided to upgrade to a Ford Focus ST 2012 for this series. The black hatchback isn't even on sale in the UK until next year.
Featuring a 1.6 Ecoboost system with ST body kit, the vehicle is more than equipped to help the actors chase all manner of criminals in the new series.
