The Focus RS's Performance Times Are As Mental As We Hoped For

Hot Hatch

0-62 mph = ?

Not to allow itself to be outdone by the new Volkswagen GTI Clubsport, Ford has just revealed official performance times for its own bonkers-fast hot hatch, the Focus RS. As we previously reported, the Focus RS will produce a total of 345 hp and 324 lb-ft of torque from its 2.3-liter turbo four banger, with power sent to all four wheels via a dual-clutch gearbox. Performance times? Well 0-62 mph will happen in 4.7 seconds and top speed is 165 mph.

All of that comes with a base price of $35,730. Fully loaded? That's $42,275. In addition, the hot hatch features the industry-first Drift Mode and Launch Control. Focus ST? No, you’re going to want this one instead.
