When the Mk2 Ford Focus RS launched in 2009 it made every other hot hatchback on the market look tame and, well, boring by comparison. Its unapologetically over-styled, beefed up body work makes it instantly recognisable as the most powerful hatchback that Ford has ever made.
This 2010 example, finished in the classic ‘Ink Blue’, 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. Whilst the new Focus RS is a more competent all round performer, it falls well short of the sense of occasion evoked by the Mk2.
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.
