Ford wasn’t kidding when they revealed that the new Focus RS is a contender to becoming the fastest sports hatch in history. The Focus RS runs on a 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder turbo engine that is packed with 350hp and 350ft-lbs of torque.

The figures translate well on the road as the Focus RS is able to record record-breaking track times. Today, the Focus RS redefined the sports hatch industry after it killed off both the Volkswagen Golf R and the Honda Civic Type-R.

Both cars are known to be the strongest rivals for the Focus RS and this is why we are surprised to see it as a mismatch in the race. The Focus RS basically outpaced and outrun both the Civic Type R and the Volkswagen Golf R by a strong margin. You can check out a clip of the race below.
