New Focus RS: 300hp from a 2.5 5 cylinder engine, with FWD.
Should have been 4WD!
i like the look of it, no doubt it will go like stink.... but a front LSD does not compensate for full 4x4..... and at the end of the day, its a Ford and will be built like one....
Not sure I would agree with that, why does it?
Looks better in that nice Ford blue I admit.
I think it will look better in the flesh and also the pea green doesn't help.
Jay i saw it at this years motor show....the exhausts look mint.... pics really dont do it justice.... although for the money i would be buying another car for the reason above
i had the original focus RS and no matter people say about it........... i adored that car! so so much grip. if anything the interior needed to grow up a bit lol.
Mate of mine has one on order as his new company demo car. As soon as I'm let lose with it I shall post my findings, the last Focus RS he had was fcuking awesome and was running 345bhp when sold on.
I'm expecting big things from the new RS
It's not for me, does that spoiler actually help keep all that power down on the front wheels? No, so for that reason alone I think it's stupid, it just looks like another Maxed focus with an ASBO and it probably runs on Stella.
Prefere the looks of the old focus rs
escort cosworth is far cooler
Rs500 is where its at!
All Ford RS cars are cool.
Not all,Mk5/6 RS 2000 isnt.
Good looking? Purely subjective.
Cool? Not in a million years..........
I like it now but in about a year it wil be a chav car so it will be uncool!
Looks nice enough...... until you look at the rear! Worse than the Renualt Megan, lol!
Looks good, but defo not a Sub-Zero car. Gets away with been cool just coz of the rear diffuser and the fact it's green.
But can't help but think it looks a bit squashed.
Doubt it mate, the original Focus RS has made it chav free so this should have a good few years before it has to worry. Most of the chavvy ***** round here get themselves an Impreza turbo for 2k then drive them like idiots until they break
i like it it would be nice in black with nicer wheels ......but i agree with that kid below it should of been four wheels drive or rear wheel drive defo not front wheels drive but i do like the look of the car in black with a set of 19" it would look nice and aggresive
Looks too much like the new Lancer to me.
Looks similar but drives nowhere near as good
They are 19" wheels, although they dont look like it.
When i first herd about it i had my megane R26 and went to order one but, when i saw it at the motorshow i decided against it.
My m8 took delivery of his last week, in White, not seen it up close yet, he passed me on Sunday in it, I have to say it looks awesome in the flesh, and yep it goes! 4WD, yes I think so, but for it will be fun none the less!
It's a 2WD if a clever front Diff.
I saw a white one on pistonheads which looked very smart.
I think they are cool and evo say it does not need the 4wd and prefered it to the latest evo which they have not rated as high as I expected them to.
Video of the RS getting driven hard
in fairness after watching that vid the RS looks like it handles extremely well for a 2wd, im quite impressed at the balance of the car from that vid, they aint messin about!
The old FRS was a corker. Mate gets his this week so I shall get pics and write up what I find asap
