Legendary Ford Focus RS makes its production debut at the recent LA International Motorshow 2015 The Ford Focus RS, legendary for its raw performance and handling capabilities is ready for production and showroom next Spring in the United States (and hopefully me might be able to see it here in Malaysia by Q3 or Q4 2016).
The 2.3 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder Ford Focus RS will boast a 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque similar to that of the Ford Mustang and will drive all four wheels through a close ratio six-speed manual transmission.
The Ford Focus RS will feature a sophisticated all-wheel drive system offering four computer aided drive modes – normal, sports, track and drift. The industry first drift mode will send up to 70% of its power to the rear wheels so that you can ruthlessly let it hang out on the track.
The launch control program will also enable you to access the fastest possible acceleration times on track. Stopping the cars of course is handled by massive Brembo brakes (and of course with blue callipers). Styling for the car is aggressively unique with deep lower opening for better inter-cooler flow and aerodynamics as well as a mean look.
The massive rear wing on the top of the hot hatch with the lower rear splitter and bulging exhaust completes the overall beauty of the car. In the interior, the car will feature a Recaro sport seat with a flat bottom blue accent stitch leather steering wheel and some sweet aluminium pedals.
We believe this baby will give its rival like the Subaru WRX STI and Golf R a good run for its money. I believe we are expected to see some of these speedsters in Malaysia, either directly from Ford Malaysia or through the grey imports
