What’s hotter to see than a celebrity that owns a Ford Focus RS? The answer is pretty simple: a celebrity that owns a Ford Focus RS and knows how to use it.

Lily Allen, one of the UK’s most popular – and vulgar – pop starts was recently photographed getting inside a lime green Ford Focus RS. And while most of us assumed that Allen owned the ride, we never gave any thought into thinking that she knew how to handle one of these bad boys.

But as it turns out, she actually does, and in this video, she shows us that she can pretty much handle doing a reverse 180 without much trouble.

In the words of the bloke who was videotaping the whole proceedings, “she’s pretty good.”

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

This is the engine that I would love to see propel in the car in sixty under in five sec. Its a brilliant system, the front suspension allows the car to have a nice torque. I would definitely put my money on this.

And some say that MS3 has to much power for the front wheels to handle. I guess there is no such thing as too much when you want more power.

The price... ridiculous. The car... awesome. Ford should take a page out of the Japanese domestic market and bring this car over the pond. Example, WRX STi, Lancer evolution, Nissan GT-R. Ignite the tuner world with your entry. First the Cosworth Escort. now this? Oh make it attainable. $33K max!

She is not pretty good but she is really good. It’s not easy to get a car and get it to perform a reverse 180 turn. Pretty amazing. Must have gotten the talent from some lessons from making movies or something.

Focus rs is not that bad for a celebrity. Honestly, Focus rs has also an icon to the celebrity because of the success it gained from WRC.

Really? Focus Rs for a Celebrity? I doubt that maybe she just borrowed it.

It seems to me that she just bought if for fun. Oh well, I guess that’s the purpose of Ford Focus RS more fun drive with a touch or serious sports.
