TopGear's Focus RS Review

2121 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  centurion
TopGear recently published a Focus RS review by Sam Philip. He didn't get to drive it but he was able to sit in the passenger side while in Drift mode and according to him, it'll "stay sideways until you run out of talent, tarmac or tyre tread" while in Drift mode.

While it's mostly marketed as a drifting vehicle, the Focus RS is still quick in acceleration and it’ll do 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds with around 70% of the torque going to the rear when in normal drive mode.

He goes into a lot more detail about it here.

Not quite sure what means when he stated that the Focus RS sounds "Fruity".

It's an english slang thing, means it sounds generic...which is in comparison to the old unique sounding 5 cylinder Mk1 and Mk2 RS...
Probably said it sounds fruity because there's no deep sound, more of a high pitched tone.

Some aftermarket exhaust maker might be able to help out those that see that as an issue.
