The new Ford Focus RS (being owned by a Clio?)

Throughout the 80s and 90s I had the pleasure of being shuttled to school in various Japanese imports, including the simply awesome 1986 Mazda 323 F. Made entirely of Kevlar, powered by a turbocharged 1.7 engine and finished with the most chavtastic of racing stripes (marking an ‘F’ down both sides) it is no wonder I developed some slightly barry-esque taste in cars.

When the rice burners were chopped in for a series of Ford Cosworths I quickly fell in love and have wanted to own one ever since. Sadly, Ford are being a bunch of tight fisted gits and trying to pass off their in-house RS brand as some kind of high performance beast.

The video below proves this is not the case. There has been some debate on YouTube as to the type of car in pursuit of the new Focus RS, however I’m pretty sure it is a new Renault Clio Cup. I say this due to the appearance of a green Clio Cup in the bumper of the Focus RS at 22 seconds in this video.

Come on Ford, sort it out!
