Because a Bentayga and Focus RS is a practical stoplight drag race, right?
Auto Express seems to be having fun lately with its current crop of test vehicles, placing both likely and unlikely competitors on the drag strip and seeing which of the two are faster. We’ve had mash ups like the Audi RS6 Performance wagon racing an Audi R8 V10 and a Bentley Bentayga racing a Land Rover Range Rover SV Autobiography, to name a few. But those are all boring compared to this duo. The two cars present are the aforementioned Bentayga and the hottest of the hot hatches, the Ford Focus RS.

As mentioned before, we’ve already seen the Bentley race with some impressive results. But the Ford Focus RS raced the Volkswagen Golf R and that race had an equally amazing result. So what happens when these two cars get together for a drag race? The discrepancies between them couldn’t be more glaring. This pairing makes even the RS6 Performance and R8 V10 competition appear normal. Both send power to four wheels and have a lift gate at the rear, but the similarities pretty much end there. The Bentley is the power broker of the pack, using its W12 to make more horsepower than most of its owners will ever need. The Ford is obviously the zippier of the two but unfortunately that doesn't count for much here.
