A good friend of mine has one of these tuned up to 440hp - when its in gear it almost feels as fast as my rs7 in the straights and around corners its amazing - this car is so nearly the most perfect car. The only slight slight annoyance is the turning circle but other than that i really really want one as a third car

In the US this was declared officially by Ford as a full-350hp beast.

This is a very seriously NASTY (as in extremely very good) little car. It's very hard to convey to those car enthusiasts from foreign countries just how passionate the English are about Ford. So I won't, you either know or don't. I'm just saying! But it goes back to atleast the MK1 Escort as we're just as mad on production rallying specials like the RS Escort.

Anyway haven't even really looked at this one much at all. I've seen enough orange ST Focus cars but this one is an enigma.

And four wheel drive? Instantly puts itself on a higher technologically advanced plane.

So only 2.8 seconds slower than an F type R at Virginia. Incredible handling when you consider the difference in acceleration.


User avatar

Fastedee  6y ago

40k? Pffft I spent double that when I drove my F40 too fast over a speed bump in Orangeville! Some of the doors in my Castle in Scotland and Chateau in Transylvania cost half that alone lolololol. Not too mention my 900 square meter cabin on a huge cliff overlooking Lake Nipigon. I was hanging out with the Shark Greg Norman one time and I says Cripes Norman you call that tiny flat space on your yacht a landing pad....LMAO.

Looks is in the eye of the beholder, if you dont like looks fine, its just your personal opinion
Now the Focus RS is fast enough for a 1590 kg car,
Also the RS usually shows 286-290 bhp on wheels during run in or first 10000 kms,
After that it will open up and post that dynos show 305-310 bhp on wheels, typically AWD cars have 13-15% loss in dyno, adding that its exactly 350 HP or 345 bhp.

the front of the focus rs will just suck insects up in summer, it is such an ugly car. and its not that fast ,over rated hp too

....A Focus RS or Golf R is definitely not low key, Specially if your a car guy/girl. Hell if one is a car guy can any stock car actually be lowkey?..


User avatar

tina  6y ago

The focus rs is a bit flash. I like the dullness and low keyness of the golf R.

Frankly no turbo charged engine is good above 5000 rpm, exceptions seen are Golfs 2.0 TSi and Type Rs 2.0 iVtec turbo. Renaults ,PSA,Nissan,BMW all other 2.0 turbos I have driven felt soft post 5000 rpm,

I drive a Fiesta ST and even in Fiesta ST progress past 5000 rpm is slow.

Now I agree it has drag, but the bigger issue for not accelarating post 110 mph is
1. High kerb weight in short wheel base
2. The GKN, RDU dosent decouple fully like in some other AWD systems, so there is the AWD system drag along with the differential limitation, thats the reason why its accelsration is poor post 100 mph,

wint  6y ago

I am a ford dealer and all the lads here know the 2.3 ecoboost engine is useless over 5000 rpm. also the drag on this car is dreadfull over 110mph. the wing slows this car down a lot. far better get the fiesta st , we sell at least 100 st fiestas to these rs focus cars. the birds love the st here. the focus rs are good cars to look at we feel.

"Describing RS drivers as kids washing cars" is mocking, in case you didnt notice

I didnt say some one should worship the Ford brand or RS,

I really dont understand why a lot are so much interested in mocking Ford cars and their owners

I came from Hondas and Suzukis and now drives a Fiesta ST and love it, but I too get this crappy mocking a lot of times for which I pay off with a middle finger, no hate speeches or no fights, but even in the internet, its there , so just for that reason I protested.

Just because somebody doesn't worship the tarmac the car drives on, Or doesn't say everything positive about it doesn't mean they hate the car or company..
