The two famous professional racing driver Ken Block and Vince Vaughn have recently got behind the wheel of two brand new hot hatchbacks, a Ford Focus STI and a VW Golf GTI.
The video posted below has been released by Ford and it’s featuring two Ford sponsored drivers at the wheel. The VW Golf GTI was also provided by the North American based automaker and at the beginning of the footage you can clearly see that both drivers would rather have the Focus STI. I would choose it too if Ford paid me, but the truth is that the Golf is way above it.
As a quick reminder, the new Ford Focus STI is a five-door performance hatchback which is coming with the company’s 2.0 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo engine, producing a total output of 247 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque. The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and this is allowing the Ford Focus STI to accelerate form 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 6.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 155 mph. Prices of the Focus STI start at 24,495 USD over-seas.
