Ford has officially announced a documentary on the new Focus RS and the trailer for it has been released recently.
If you thought that you aren’t going to see the new Ford Focus RS in a controlled and official environment, think again, because the carmaker is believing otherwise. According to the blue oval, a documentary on the impressive hot hatch is going to be released soon and in order to put the event into the spotlights, for the first time, a trailer has been released.
The clip has been dubbed “Rebirth of an Icon” and it is part of an eight-episode series, which will be kicking off next week. This will be showing the model in question which will be subjected to just about everything, from cold weather testing to crash tests, so the video, which has been posted below, right after the jump, is a good exercise in order to find out what is coming.
