2002-03 FO­CUS RS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Seven Brilliant Fast Fords To Buy Now -

WHAT TO PAY £6500-£18,000 It’s hard not to love the RS. It was fully de­serv­ing of the Ral­lye Sport moniker thanks to its blis­ter­ing straight­line per­for­mance, molten grip and scalpel-sharp steer­ing. It also looked su­perb, dis­till­ing some phys­i­cal el­e­ments of the Fo­cus World Rally Cham­pi­onship con­tender. If there was a down­side, it was the epic torque steer on rough sur­faces, thanks in part to the lim­it­ed­slip dif­fer­en­tial up front. It’s flawed but, on the right road, epi­cally good fun.
