Video: Top Gear drives the Ford Focus RS

The Brits at Top Gear have just put the latest Euro-only hot hatch from the blue oval through its paces at their test track. Now BBC premier Jeremy Clarkson adores the Ford Focus RS for its 300 HP despite the inconvenience of torque steer, but it is that little Richard Hammond who contests the rally inspired turbocharged Ford Focus with his favorite, the Renault Megane R26R.

Unfortunately there is no word on the Focus RS making its way into U.S. dealerships anytime soon, but if the Fiesta Rally cars scheduled appearance at the X-games are an indication, the American automaker may have some sort of fun to drive car straight from the factory on its way.
