Desperately wanted a sleek looking coupe rather than a standard hatchback like every other young driver in the UK has, so after a year of saving and searching for a coupe with a small engine (insurance is a bitch in england) I found a beautiful condition 99' puma.
Had the windows blacked out already and had all the service history so I took it.

Pics are from the dealers website:

That thing won Top Gears car of the year a few years back. Baybe it was the Racing Puma. But it's a damn fun to drive little car. Its not just the looks that intrigue me.

not saying that they are the same.. but most of ford's cars have ties between their uk and us counterparts. just cause she looks different on the outside doesn't mean that they don't share other things under the skin..

It's what the US SHOULD have gotten instead of this line of Escorts, Cougars, and Foci. I've seen a track only on in the states. And know people whom have owned them and LOVED them. Supposedly Go kart like handling. Unlike anything Ford has had in production in the states in recent memory. Maybe you could find parts that were from other cars. But they are not like anything we got in the States.
