Ford Focus RS on the 'Ring

Not quite as quick as the current Renault, but still worth a watch if you're into that sort of thing

In response

To Mr Batty's valid comment to the earlier post about the jet pack, and all of the demo videos are just of guys hovering around a little, rather than going anywhere, the one below popped into my RSS reader today. Not only does it show someone actually travelling using one of these things, it actually races a brand new Focus RS - not the slowest car in the world. Now, the jet pack itself is different to the one below, and this one apparenty is a "race" version, that only carries about 30 seconds of fuel, but it still looks kinda cool to me....

Focus RS - US Bound?

Once again, the rumors have started. Now that I think Ford has confirmed they're not going to fall off the edge of a bankruptcy cliff, and that they're bringing over the Focus in de-tuned form, we have the whisper of the RS making it to these shores. Given the pretty amazing reviews that Evo Magazine gave it back home, if the price comes in somewhere in the reasonable range over here, it might be somewhat tempting as my daily driver. It's even got the ready made snow shovel on the front for those Colorado winters (or spring this year I guess).

Now, orange or green?

New Ford Focus RS



The new Ford Focus has been released in Europe (or the details have at least) and it's nice. 275 bhp and nearly 300 lb-ft of torque to keep you entertained. Now we just need 2 things - the review from Evo to see if handles, and an announcement that they're bringing it over to the US.
