Why is the 0-100km/h time lower than the 0-60 mph time?

How much are these? I don't think we can buy them in the USA without importing them special order.

I own a Cobalt SS Turbo that is a great car (#160 here) and you can pick one up for about $16K right now. For another $2K it easily kicks up to 350whp!

I also find it interesting that in the USA you can't buy a Ford Focus RS! FORD IS AN AMERICAN COMPANY!

Ah the irony.

This car is insanely good for its price. I have driven it a few times, didnt have the chance to buy one.. It is better than all other sporty cars in the same class and it is cheaper. The only bad thing I can say about this car it has FWD rather than AWD. I have raced it against a 335i and it just hummiliates the bmw

If you are willing to buy a car, you will have to get the mortgage loans. Furthermore, my brother usually utilizes a short term loan, which supposes to be the most useful.

That video shows a BTG-time of the Nürburgring, not a full lap. Maybe the future R26R successor will get a time close to 8.06, let's hope so. Go Renault!

IT depends on driver doesnt matter what car it is... Focus rs is better and faster it was proven at pro days.. many laps are diferent.
I saw 2 ford focus rs and 2 megane rs diferent time about 2 seconds and exatly same car... so it depends on driver or remake of car... if its stock or not.

angel  7y ago

Oh, It did not beat Focus RS Ring time


User avatar

Anonimity is Great  7y ago

Wow, I thought it would be at least as fast as the Focus RS. Must be the power difference.

R.S. Driver  7y ago

Please ask Hans Joachim Stuck for drive the Renault Megane RS Mk III on the Nordschleife, then the car will be shure about 11 seconds faster.

The laptimes are wrong for the Megane RS and the Focus RS @ Haute Saintonge. The real ones are 1:06:907 for the Megane and 1:06:259 for the Focus. Someone could change them ? If you wish to check them http://www.automoto.fr/actualite-automobile/breves/essai-gt-tous-les-temps-des-voitures-testees-dans-l-emission-6063524.html
