Cool Facts About the Ford Focus RS Turbo
The Focus RS Turbo was widely credited with reigniting popularity and interest in Ford’s RS line of performance cars. Paul Thomas, Ford’s managing director for the UK market, said he was confident it was a sales winner but that even he was surprised at the overwhelmingly positive reaction it had.
The motoring press were equally glowing in their praise of this RS model, with Auto Express magazine particularly noting that its ‘storming performance, amazing handling and grip … make it one mean machine which transforms the Focus from family-friendly motor to a true macho beast.’
