umm... actually, no he isn't

the Focus RS is a Ford Europe only vehicle, with a few going to Oz

if i was to get a brand new Ford Falcon (BA X6R Turbo please) i could get one at the Ford dealer down the street?
i wish, i'd have to go to the neatest Ford Oz dealer

Focus RS

My dad has a focus RS on order ( live in UK)... it handles better than a subaru and is faster than an evo in a straight line. If you want one, firstly there are only 200 of them with right hand drive... and secondly i havent seen any out side of Europe. but hey... get it imported! it will cost a hell of alot more for shipping tho .... its a beutie!

Lovely cars SJ......pitty it aint RWD though

And BigBadBrat it's debatable as to whether this is in the right place....but seeing as Ford has it's European, Australian and US divisions, I think it's ok here

I remember the first time i saw the Focus RS in my town (Wrexham, North Wales, UK) and it looked really cool! the interior was really sporty and the overall presence of the car was good! but i also rememeber seeing the Golf R32 for the first time and it blew me away! its alot more muscular than the RS and its overall presence is awesome!!

my view!!

The Focus also suffers from cronic Torque Steer, something that the Golf does without thanks to it's AWD system

There are 3 "hot hatches" in the running today, the RS, the Golf V6, and The Alpha 147 GTA with a 3.2 V6 24v (3179 cc, 250 BHP-EEC, 246 km/hr), the RS has a clever diff to put power 2 the road, the Golf is miles faster than the RS, that has 4 wheel drive. However the Alfas 3.2 V6, has nothing, Italians... Gotta love em! i eagerly await the arrival for the Ford Fiesta RS..

I'm a big fan of the R32, but I'd take an S3 over an R32 any day of the week. Audi's are just much more attractive cars IMO, but I still really like the R32.
