Ken Block Does Gymkhana in New Ford Focus RS
Normally, I am all about the rear-wheel drive when it comes to sports cars. I’ve tried front-wheel drive cars at the racetrack before and just don’t like the way they handle. However, I’d be willing to forgo my penchant for the rear-wheel drive cars to own the new 320+hp AWD Focus RS, a car that looks truly awesome.
You may already know that Ford hired Ken Block of Gymkhana and racing fame to drive the Focus RS onto the podium for the unveil this week. Beforehand, Ford also put Ken behind the wheel of the car and sent him out to play, and play he did.
I don’t want to give it away, but the Focus RS looks like a beast and I really want one. The car sounds pretty good too for a turbocharged four-banger. Watch the video and see for yourself.
