And neither does Ken Block.
Ford has created some insanely fast vehicles in the past, but the latest all-wheel-drive hatchback is a whole new type of fast and features the coveted RS badge. Very few vehicles have come out of Ford’s factory bearing the iconic RS badge and the majority of cars have been used for rallying. The new Ford Focus RS may be a road-going car, but the hot hatch is more than capable of going off the beaten path—as Ken Block shows us—and that’s thanks to the incredible cars that came before it.
Ford wants to remind the world that it doesn’t create a RS-badged often, but when it does, it’s a thing of beauty.
