Ford Focus RS: The hottest of hatches

Besides wagons, the most enjoyable segment that barely anyone in the States enjoys is the hot hatch. The hottest of the hatches is a space occupied by a Ford. Specifically, the Focus RS. It’s a 350-horsepower, all-wheel-drive, drift-mode-having fun machine… and it should put the Volkswagen Golf R and Subaru WRX STI (which needs to come back with a hatch or wagon version) on serious notice.
[Disclaimer: Ford tossed us the keys to this Focus RS and included a full tank of fuel. We actually left some tread on the tires, despite what you see in the video above.]

    Great video. “Pop pop pop” is good. My kids have let other kids know that “when daddy drives, the van sounds like a motorcycle”, which creates a sort of ambivalent vibe at parents meetings. But you have to start somewhere.
