Ford Focus RS vs Volkswagen Golf R: It Has Finally Happened

By  | 

When Ford first announced on the new-generation Focus RS, we somehow knew that the car will eventually take on the Volkswagen Golf R on the asphalt track. Well, it has finally happened.

A drag race was conducted by EVO and it involves the all-new Ford Focus RS and the latest Volkswagen Golf R. The Focus RS is powered by the Mustang-sourced 2.3L 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that has 350hp and 350ft-lbs of torque to offer.

As for the Volkswagen Golf R, it relies on a 2L turbo-4 engine with 296hp and 280ft-lbs of torque. The figures might side with the Focus RS but it is worth noting that the Golf R is 50kg lighter.

We won’t spoilt the result or you and recommend you to catch the clip embedded below. You’ll be surprised by the car that will impress you more.
