The latest instalment of the Ford Focus RS has been resurrected as a high-performance road car that includes the new Ford Performance Four-Wheel-Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring that delivers market-leading cornering speed with unsurpassed driver excitement and bags of fun.
The Focus RS – equipped with a unique 2.3-litre EcoBoost power unit engineered to deliver 350 PS – you can also find this engine in the all-new Ford Mustang. The Focus RS will be available for UK customers from early 2016, and is part of a stack of 12 performance cars by Ford that will bring more amazing design and power to customers around the world through to 2020.
The dramatic exterior design looks much like a stealth fighter jet rather than a hot hatch. The Ford Focus RS delivers enhanced aerodynamics and cooling and technologies new to the RS line-up - including selectable Drive Modes – an industry-first Drift Mode that allows controlled oversteer drifts – and Launch Control.
“The all-new Focus RS is a very serious machine with high-performance technology and innovative engineering that sets a new benchmark for driving exhilaration,” said Raj Nair, group vice president, Global Product Development, Ford Motor Company. “The RS line has a proud history of technical breakthroughs that have gone on to benefit all Ford customers, and the new Focus RS is no exception.”
“All-new Focus RS hits 100 kilometres per hour in 4.7 seconds – and that’s about the time it will take customers to decide they want one after getting behind the wheel,” explained Juergen Gagstatter, chief program engineer for Focus RS. “This car delivers ground-breaking technology with stunning handling and performance, all for a price which must give our premium competitors sleepless nights.”
