Ford Focus RS vs Mustang GT, Nissan GT-R and MKV Supra – Street Hits

October 17th, 2020

If you’ve never considered trolling the streets for roll racing victims in a Ford Focus, this video may change the way you think. Often overlooked, the Ford Focus RS packs enormous power in an all-wheel drive package, Despite the fact that the Focus RS is not the lightest sub-compact hatchback on the street, this little grocery-getter gets off the line like a rocket, shifts smoothly and accelerates responsively. Add a few aftermarket bolt-ons and a turbocharger upgrade and you have a legitimate contender on street or strip.

Right off the assembly line, the Ford Focus RS is capable of producing 350hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque via an EcoBoost turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. The short wheelbase and all-wheel drivetrain make it ideal for ripping up the asphalt. In factory trim, the Focus RS can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5-seconds and has a top speed (electronically controlled) of 165 mph.

Built in Germany, the Focus RS offers launch control and Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive with automatic torque vectoring for even distribution of torque to all four axles. The Focus RS featured in this video has been upgraded with a larger turbo and it has been JSTuned.

Let’s see what happens when it hits the streets.
