Select Launch Control, apply full throttle, and less than five seconds later the Focus RS high-performance hatchback hits 62 mph (100 km/h).
And here’s the proof.
And guess what happens if you keep your foot down? 165 mph – the highest top speed of any RS vehicle.
The Focus RS is currently keeping good company with the Ford GT supercar, and the new Mustang at the Frankfurt Motor Show. And if you reckon a Focus RS is the very thing to take pride of place on your driveway, prices start from £28,940 – a full £8,000 less than some premium car-makers are charging for rival cars.
