The new generation of the Ford Focus RS has been caught on camera on the famous German track, the Nurburgring, while it was being tested.
The North American based automaker Ford is currently testing out the new generation of the Focus RS. The test mule has been caught on camera while it was being driven fast on the Nurburgring and despite looking production-ready, it is still a couple of years from becoming the real deal. The new hot hatch will be entering the market sometimes in 2016, one year before the new generation of the regular Focus will be introduced.
The 2017 Ford Focus RS will be coming with a distinctive body kit, which will put some distance between it and the standard one, and it will also get a RevoKnuckle front suspension system, a stiffer and lower chassis and the same front-wheel drive layout, along with a mechanical limited slip differential and a 6-speed manual transmission. Power will be provided by the same engine used on the new Mustang generation, the 2.3 liter EcoBoost engine, which should be producing approximately 330 HP (243 kW). Prices for the model should start at approximately 34,000 euros.
