The conversation in this video may sound Greek to you, but that’s only because…it is Greek. Apart from an exorbitant debt, which may or may not kick started the Eurozone crisis that's knocking even on Germany's door, the Mediterranean country has quite a lot of mountains, too.
Its new car market may have sunk near the bottom of the Marianas Trench and fast cars are naturally not a priority for a large part of the population, but this doesn’t mean that car nuts or motoring journalists have vanished from the country.
Local publication Drive has taken advantage of one of those mountain passes to stage a hill climb fight between a pair of front-wheel drive hot hatches powered by 2.0-liter turbocharged engines separated by just 15HP.
Ford says that its Focus ST can claim the throne of the segment, despite coming only in five-door and estate bodies. According to VW, the Scirocco R is a coupe; yet, for all intends and purposes, it can be considered as a squatter, sportier and more posh version of the Golf on which it is based.
You can watch the hot Focus take on the slightly more powerful Scirocco in the video that after the jump.
