Ford Focus RS500 Revealed


The ford Focus RS is one of the best hot-hatches on the market today, in fact I would go as far as to say that it is THE best. But with competitors churning out ASBO inspired cars that are coming closer and closer to the RS, the blue oval have had to think about how they can keep their lead.

Speculation grew to a phenomenal amount over the past week when Ford opened a site counting down to a shadowed figure labelled RS500. Thanks to some internet-trickery press images have been leaked of the enigma that is the Ford Focus RS500. Ford, no longer wanting to continue the act of secrecy has bowed under pressure.
