Ford Focus RS: 300 bhp Focus RS spotted

Focus RS set to be fastest Ford hatch ever with over 300 bhp

Don’t be fooled by the looks of this test car. It is not the ordinary Ford Focus ST but the brand-new Focus RS. Looking closer at the front end one can see the bigger air intakes and the driver helps drawing the photographers attention by giving him the finger and putting his foot down.

The sound of the 300-bhp engine was unmistakable, just like the car’s fast acceleration with four-wheel-drive and the rally-like sound of that dump valve while shifting gears. Add some wide fenders, a more aggressive front end styling and you have the Focus RS, a true competitor to the upcoming EVO X.
