A strange Ford I saw

I was driving down the road towards my friend's house, when I saw this odd looking Ford. It was a hatchback, but it looked all funky, radical and late-90s. It had no model badge on it, and I've never seen one before.
I looked at every single Ford listed on Wikipedia and I couldn't find it. I can (just about) safely say it's not a Ka, Focus, Festiva, Laser or Fiesta.

What is it?

But seriously

List of Ford vehicles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Happy hunting.

It's not a Cougar or a Probe and I said I scoured Wikipedia...what's wrong with you?
Nope, not a Puma either. It wasn't so much sporty, it more looked like a radical (and failed) attempt at making the small car exciting. Emphasis on radical.

I think you've spied a body kitted Laser.

If so then every single panel was replaced. The lights were in a completely different situation, etc. What's more, it didn't look completely pimped, and anyone who wants to modify a car that much wants it completely and utterly pimped, not looking like an ugly hatchback. :P

Well you're the only guy who has seen it and the only info you gave us was hatch, 90's not Ka, Focus, Festiva, Laser or Fiesta.
If it ain't in the list of every model Ford have produced since ever....then what do you want from me?

Proper knowledge. Wikipedia may not have had a picture of every single model, etc.
I'll get back to you when I get a photo.

Hey good luck mate, I know the agony and frustration of seeking an obscure, unknown vehicle but the apoplexy of at last, finding your model is worth it!

P.S, if it is a body kitted Laser you will be hunted down.

Yeah, it's not fun. Last time it happened was this. Less significant because it was more abstract, not knowing this Ford is strange.
