Ford Focus RS enters final development stage on video


With the new Focus RS one of the most hotly anticipated cars of 2016, it's understandable that Ford would want to thoroughly test it.

To begin with, driving legend Ken Block tests the car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Block, who was one of the first people to drive a prototype of the RS, was quick to notice the changes that had happened throughout the development noting the improved steering and better power delivery in particular.
