new ford focus rsThe new Ford Focus RS through Ken Block’s perspective! Yup, Ken Block went to Cologne, Germany to present the all new Ford Focus RS 2016. And the audience loved him! Ford Europe asked Ken Block to test the all-new Focus RS prototype. The fuss about this car has been ongoing for months. The new performance hot hatch was revealed in style at the company’s Germany factory in Cologne.

The new Ford Focus RS through Ken Block’s perspective!

The American firm recruited one of its most famous racing drivers to help with the launch of the new Ford Focus RS. Below you can see the video of Ken Block himself, drifting and sliding the Focus RS through the firm’s German facilities.

The new 2016 Ford Focus RS is based on the Mustang’s aluminium four-cylinder 2.3-liter EcoBoost unit and delivers over 320 hp. Power is then sent through all four wheels. Despite the all-wheel drive system, the new Focus RS still kicks out its tail and performs some truly ferocious slides! The all-wheel drive system also uses advanced torque vectoring.

The six-speed manual transmission has been optimized with shorter gear lever to deliver faster and more accurate shifts. Both transmission and clutch were upgraded for the engine’s increased torque output. The direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and advanced turbocharging have a good purpose. Significantly improved fuel economy and indications are that CO2 emissions will be significantly reduced against the previous model.

Visually, the Focus RS is both dramatic and functional. Four striking colors include Nitrous Blue, a vibrant four-coat metallic finish exclusive to the RS, plus Stealth Grey, Absolute Black and Frozen White. The car revealed in Cologne features the same special Liquid Blue colour scheme first seen on the all-new Ford GT revealed last month at the North American International Auto Show.
