Third-generation Focus RS will be available in major markets around the world for the first time.
It follows the reveal last month of the new Ford GT supercar as part of a new era of Ford performance that will deliver 12 new vehicles by 2020.
Developed by the Ford Performance team, RS features ground-breaking new Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring for class-leading cornering speed and limit handling.
New Focus RS will be the 30th vehicle to wear the RS badge since 1968 and will be built in Saarlouis, Germany, starting late this year.
Professional rally driver and star of Gymkhana films Ken Block teamed with Ford as a consultant on the development of Focus RS.
