    This is of course a fully loaded Fiesta, but still...

    Try it out on the Ford calculator here. Hit configure and add all options :)

    With Flex Capacitor option. The only problem is you can't get a Ford Fiesta up to 88 mph! :-D

    To be fair, you can't really get a DeLorean up to 88 either.

    Nope. Look at the numbers. The Fiesta is over $1,000,000. That's one million dollars. Obviously, it's a bug in the web app. But it's funny!

    1.21 megadollars? They messed it up!

    It's an easter egg, not a bug. In honor of Back to the Future Day, they added a joke option for a Flux Capacitor which costs $1,210,000 to add.

    LMAO

    Is it wrong I read the line item in the OP as "destination chargers"?

    In the OP, it's just rolled into "Options." I guess you have to go to the site to see the joke/egg. Still, I think they got it wrong, though. If they were making reference to "1.21 jigga-Watts," that is 1.21 GW, which is 1.21 billion Watts. Shouldn't the flux capacitor cost $1,210,000,000?

    Pretty funny - Kudos to Ford for putting that on their website. I actually like the Focus RS a bit... :)
