A cherry red Focus, equipped with the petrol, one litre, turbo motor, has unwittingly become the millionth of its kind. Not just the millionth Focus, but the millionth Mk3 Focus. Whichever way you cut it, that is a lot of Focus’/Foci.
Lets try to imagine that
Using Parkers excellent website, we can find that the MK3 Focus is 4358mm long by 2010mm wide. That gives us a total area of 8759mm or 8.8 square metres. I’ve rounded this figure up a tad, not just for ease, but to allow some sort of parking distance between these million vehicles.
So that times a MILLION is 8.8 Million square metres or 8800 square kilometres. That’s very nearly Norfolk and Suffolk put together. For the international readers, that’s just a bit bigger than ONE MILLION Ford Focus’/Foci parked very closely together.
Here’s a picture of a Focus in the wild:
