The wait is over, with the first drive of the new Ford Focus RS…
5th Gear Video
The fastest production model in Ford’s history, the Focus RS, with it’s modified 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine pumping out 301bhp. 0-62mph takes 5.9 seconds and won’t stop until you hit the 163mph top speed.
Fitted with the new RevoKnuckle, a very clever suspension system that dramatically reduces the torque steer. The interior features carbon fibre trim and the exterior, which boasts an aggressive front end with a low splitter and deep air intakes, plus a huge boot spoiler and rally-inspired diffuser.
Ford have already taken the £24,995 from 1,800 customers, will you be the next?
