Travelling two hours north of Montreal in late February to drive two of Ford’s most popular high performance vehicles seemed sort of crazy, but fun. Here’s the lineup ready for action in the snow.

MECAGLISSE, Que. – Travelling two hours north of Montreal in late February to drive two of Ford’s most popular high performance vehicles seemed sort of crazy.

Especially with the temperatures dropping and snow already packed into the already rough roads.

Ford had taken a group of us to Mecaglisse Motorsport Park to put the new 2017 Focus RS and F-150 Raptor through its paces.

This wasn’t your run of the mill test. This drive was to prove a point – that high performance vehicles can handle anything a Canadian winter can throw at it.

Under the tutorage of some of Quebec’s best performance driving instructors we were encouraged to push both the RS and Raptor to a level that I was certainly not accustomed to nor would I ever normally dare push so hard under such weather and driving conditions.

First up for me was the Focus RS. I drove this little monster late last year, but I didn’t have the chance to really push it.

Little did I know, at the time, that the first time I got to really push it would be on an ice covered racetrack with a number of obstacles added to make all that little bit more challenging.

The RS’s 2.3–litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine pushes out 350hp and 350 lb/ft of torque, which is a rather daunting amount of power to put down especially on ice.

The RS has four different drive settings, but for this exercise we were to be keeping in the crazy – Drift Mode. While on the ice we were to be using... [Read More]

Somebody Bought a Mk2 Focus RS, Then Drove It Just 45 Miles

The Focus RS is the kind of car developed to be driven, not to be locked up in the garage for future sale. This particular second-generation Focus RS, however, is one of those exceptions, showing just 45 miles on the clock.

It’s no wonder, then, this is as brand new as a Mk2 Focus RS can get in this day and age. Built in 2009 and kept in storage ever since, the three-door hot hatchback is headlining Classic Car Auctions' biggest sale ever.

The UK-spec car saw only one service, carried out in October 2016, and two MOTs in 2015 and 2016. Given these circumstances, CCA awarded it 134 out of a maximum of 135 points in the condition report. Whichever way you look at it, this is the newest old Focus RS currently in existence.

“Back in February,” explains CCA general manager Guy Lees-Milne, “our sister company Silverstone Auctions offered an Ultimate Green example with just 1,800 miles.” Would you care to guess how much that car sold for? Buyer’s premium included, the price was £41,063, which works out to ten grand more than the starting price of the current model (£31,765).

With that in mind, now try to estimate what sort of money CCA expects the 45-mile example to sell. Curiously enough, the minimum is £32,000 and the highest appraisal is £36,000. Too little, too much, it’s up to you to decide if that amount of Her Majesty’s pounds sterling is worth it.

Compared to the modern-day brawler, the original is a front-wheel-drive affair and the engine is a Volvo-engineered 2.5-liter five-cylinder enhanced by a Borg Warner K16 turbo running up to 20.3 psi. Out of the box, the five-banger delivers 305 PS (301 ponies) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque.

This, however, is not the ultimate iteration of the Mk2 Focus RS. The Focus RS500 is it, spawning a production run of 500 units, all of them finished in Panther Black metallic.

Apropos of Nothing Whatsoever, Ford Reminds Drivers That Focus RS is Great for Winter

For those of you living under a rock or, more fortunately, in a region where the climate is warmer around this time of year, you may be unaware that an estimated 18 million Americans are under a blizzard warning as Winter Storm Stella descends upon the northeast.

As is customary when a major, buzzworthy winter storm hits, automakers are on their horses to connect inclement weather to their products. This time up, Ford is taking the opportunity of snowfall to chat up its Ford Focus RS2 Package. Also, colors and other stuff.

Granted, Ford has a somewhat legit angle with its timely press release, entitled “WEATHER REMAINS CHILLY, FORD FOCUS RS SALES STILL HOT THANKS TO ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, RS2 PACKAGE”: the Focus RS’ Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive System with Dynamic Torque Vectoring has perhaps contributed to it maintaining sales momentum through months where performance car sales might otherwise sag.

“Sales momentum for the Focus RS has been incredible in the U.S. for the first six months,” said Jessica Bishop, Focus marketing manager, Ford North America. “Uniquely for a performance vehicle, we haven’t seen any sales decline during the winter months, but rather customer interest has picked up thanks to AWD availability.”

Ford notes that it has sold more than 3,500 units since the Focus RS was launched last summer, averaging sales of around 500 units per month. Contrary to the idea of customers preferring the Focus RS for its ability to handle winter weather, however, is the fact that its biggest market by far—California, where Ford has sold 627 units—is one that is largely unaffected by harsh winter weather, as is the fact that its third and fourth largest markets—Texas and Florida, respectively—also tend not to experience a great deal of snowfall.

In the process, Ford also tipped that the average transaction price for the Focus RS is $42,351, a significantly-above-base price driven by the addition of features like the Focus RS2 package, which has been added by approximately 62% of customers.... [Read More]
