New Ford Focus RS Tackles Magny-Cours

Ford Focus RS Magny 600x405 at New Ford Focus RS Tackles Magny Cours

The Magny-Cours circuit in France is one of the world’s most iconic race tracks and even though it no longer hosts Formula One events, it still manages to amaze us. A few days ago we showed you the guys from Motorsport Magazine taking a Porsche 718 Boxster S around this magnificent track. Now let’s go onboard with them in a Ford Focus RS Mk III for a flying lap.

The new Ford Focus RS with its 350 horsepower turbo engine and super tricky drivetrain is one helluva performer, as shown by the lap time it set at Magny-Cours. It’s only a second slower than the BMW M2 which is more focused sports car. Very impressive indeed!

Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive system

Selectable Drive Modes including an industry-first Drift Mode and Launch Control

Torque Vectoring

2.3-litre EcoBoost engine with 350 horsepower
