While the Ford Focus RS always had a reputation as “A bit of a Boy Racer car” – there was no denying that the car itself was fast, capable and potent on track. However, the new version has grown up, and shaken off the messy haircut and its “bad company” to become a respectable member of society – albeit with all the history and rebel youth hiding just below the surface.
Added to this model is a now 345 horsepower engine, adjustable sport suspension and all wheel drive, and brembo brakes – this is not a car to be taken lightly. The steering is direct, communicative and precise, the suspension firm and bumpy – but for good reason, this is a track car afterall. The connection between car and driver is something many manufacturers can only dream of, the the Focus RS is a beast, ready to take on the Nordschleife.
