Ford's New Focus RS Is A True Hero Car That Knows How To Party

|

If you needed more proof of how awesome the new Ford Focus RS really is, this one is for you.

Being one of the most hotly anticipated models of the year, the new Ford Focus RS has some really big shoes to fill, thanks to its glorious ancestors.

For the first time in a Focus RS, power goes to all four wheels via a bespoke AWD system that features real torque vectoring in the rear axle and can send up to 70 per cent of the engine’s torque at the back. And let's not forget about that famous Drift mode.

The turbocharged 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine produces 345hp and is mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox, allowing for a 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 165mph.

Evo magazine share their initial thoughts on the mighty Ford Focus RS after driving it on some scenic Spanish roads.

Enjoy the pops and bangs from the exhaust, er, I mean the video.
