Focus RS: bloody rapid

The news from Austria is that the 2009 Ford Focus RS will be able to hit 164mph, which is frankly bonkers in a production-spec hatchback. Nice to see the Rallye Sport division are still strongly adhered to the sell-on-Friday-race-on-Saturday ethic!

0-60 is despatched in 5.9 seconds, and there's an LSD as well as clever 'Revoknuckle' technology that will help to transmit the 300-odd horsepower through the front wheels without it torque-steering like a bastard. The cost of this lunacy? Just £25k...
