    Default All New 2016 Ford Focus RS

    Ford reveals 345-horsepower output for new Focus RS [w/video]

    So who is getting one?
    2.3L EcoBoost Turbo 4cyl. 345hp/324tq


    That exhaust note.

    The 30th Ford RS model already packs more power and torque than the new Honda Civic Type R (306 hp, 295 lb-ft), Volkswagen Golf R (292 hp, 280 lb-ft), Subaru WRX STI (305 hp, 290 lb-ft) or the Nürburgring-conquering Renault Mégane 275 Trophy-R (271 hp, 266 lb-ft) and Seat Leon Cupra (276 hp, 258 lb-ft). It even respectably holds its own against the more upscale BMW M235i (320 hp, 330 lb-ft), Mercedes A45/CLA45 AMG (355 hp, 332 lb-ft), and Audi RS3 (362 hp, 343 lb-ft).

    Evo is gone. You won't race the Miata. I'm guessing you're planning a Time Atacking RS?

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.
    But obviously I just dont get it. -fatbillybob

    I still have my supermiata for sale, FYI if you dumped your Amazon prime account you could have had the miata last year ;-)

    I want a truck like the one in the video. Since I need a new truck, it makes more sense than a Focus at this point.

    Ford is stepping it up in terms of HO cars. This and the GT40 in the same year? Impressive.

    This truck makes a lot of sense. And is probably a diesel too.

    Buddy of mine already put money down on the RS. I hope to drive it soon after he picks it up. From what he has said, dealers get a limited amount of the model. He is working with a dealer in Alabama to secure his.

    Ford has been getting so many things right. It makes me proud for no rational reason. I used to hate the hell out of Fords.

    Ford also is coming out with the Shelby GT350R and the new Ford GT.

    I'm betting the Ford Focus RS will be $35-40k before taxes.

    Since Ford Transit is already selling here in the US (they are only 20 years late) lets start manufacturing something like that. TrackHQ special Pretty sure it could be made with a folding roof sleep section like the VW Westfalia campers.
    May be cheaper than the Focus RS too

    Ford would be pleased see interest from a much admired, pro Mustang pilot.
