For those of you who do not know: Tanner Foust is a professional racing driver, stunt driver, and television host. So its really no surprise why Ford picked him to get behind the wheel of the new Focus RS500. Better than just driving it around the block, Foust took the RS500 to the Nurburgring and pushed it to its very limits.
The Focus RS500 is powered a 2.5L 20 V DOHC RS engine that delivers a total of 345 HP (up from the standard 300 HP that comes with the Focus RS) and a peak torque of 339 lb/ft. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 163 mph.
So what do you think? Was he able to push the boundaries of the Focus RS500’s power and the beauty? All you need to do is watch the video and you will find out!
