Final specs/details of 2016 Focus RS

http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/ne...stival-display

Here it is. This car should be good. If they price it right along the lines of Sti they should sell a bunch. Good job Ford.

If it's as loose as the video, it's going to be outstanding.

Yeah interior could be better but I guess they spent all the money on the drivetrain.

Aside from slightly better steering feel, the STI hasn't changed since we first got it.

I'm so excited for this car!

I agree the interior is a little rough, but mechanically there is a lot there for the money!

Definitely an option for me, have had previous RS's.

Nice for Ford to finally get an AWD version.


The one I am interested in, is the baby brother to this, the Fiesta RS.

Apparently Ford will be releasing it at some point, expected to have 240bhp and 'possibly' AWD, although I think likely to be fwd, however AWD Fiesta RS with 240bhp would be amazing.

Knowing that American performance parts (even for Corvettes) come relatively cheap. The potential is huge. Not to mention no M tax.
