2016 AWD 350 HP Ford Focus RS

I just heard about this and wasn't sure how many was aware but holy space ghost if the rumors are true. This will be one bad *** sports coupé. Doesn't anyone find it odd that Ford would make such a powerful 4 banger turbo car right after having the 4 banger mustang. If the rumors are correct a 350 HP AWD Focus may be faster than a stock 5.0 or darn near as quick. It won't have traction issues for one being AWD and with the weight difference between the Focus and 5.0 mustang, that is gonna be bad ***.

So many good cars coming out in the next few years... so little money.

All speculation is that the US will get it.

Lol. I'm actually surprised that Ford would even want to bring it over to the U.S. Being that the 5.0 is Fords semi flagship performance sports car and a 350 HP turbo AWD, far lighter Focus will be real close to 5.0 times.
