When the Ford Focus RS Mk2 launched in 2009 it made other hot hatchback’s look tame and, well, boring by comparison. Its unapologetically over-styled, beefed up body kit makes it instantly recognizeable as the most powerful hatchback that Ford has ever made.
This 2010 example in Viper Green is a future classic as the new Mk3 Ford Focus RS moves away from front wheel drive and embraces AWD in the quest for greater off-the-mark performance and all weather handling stability.
The Focus RS features a heavily reworked version of the 2.5L five cylinder engine that has been used in everything from the Focus ST to the Volvo S60. The Focus RS benefits from a bigger turbo, intercooler and strengthened internals. As a result, the Focus RS produces 224kW/440Nm and completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 5.9sec- not bad from a FWD hatchback.
This 2010 Focus RS features a slew of aftermarket upgrades including; Custom tune, Airtec intercooler and 3inch turbo-back exhaust- just to name a few. We expect that these upgrades would translate to ~300kW at the engine.
