Ford Focus RS to come to town

You don't have to oogle at the new 300bhp Ford Focus RS anymore because its coming to town. Though in limited numbers, the new RS version will be making its way to our shores sometime in April.

Due to the high demand in Europe, there just aren't that many to go round the world. Luckily though, a few Singaporeans will be able to get their hands on the wheel of this hyper hot hatch which is set to compete with the Golf R and the new Megane Renaultsport RS. With 300bhp on its front wheels, you'd think that there will be tons of understeer but Ford has promised 'exceptional handling' with their new front suspension. It seems that hatches these days are becoming increasingly popular and so is the demand for higher power. I can't wait to get my hands on this one for a drive.. Pity there just wouldn't be a proper place to push this baby to the edge. Unless Ford is ready to get an open area like Jaguar, Audi and Mitsubishi have done in the past to showcase the new RS, driving it on normal roads just wouldn't be the same and having 300 horses lurching you forward with your skull glued to the headrest. Now that's what I want to feel..

the front is quite nice but the rear looks rather messy. the rear diffuser and spoiler look like after thoughts and weren't meant to be there originally.

The previous focus RS is already be nice, but regent charge extra for the signature orange.

I wonder this version comes with the same premuim... any 5 door version?
