^ pfttt just cause it has more hp doesnt mean its the best of the bunch... Rs500 will never accomplish what this baby has done. And since it was so similar yet so different id say the escort cosworth > all focus

But mk1 ftw imo

Since it was a factory project, I am going to say the FR200

If you were part of the Focus enthusiast community when that car was introduced, you were blown away.

Well if we are bringing up Focus's that FRPP threw money at, dont forget the RS8.
http://www.supercars.net/cars/2523.html

Although neither of these had a realistic chance of getting a production run. Here is an article pitting it against an '04 Gallardo (did the qrt in 12.7 vs the Lambo's 12.9 )

That's the rarest of them all, I also agree that it is one of the hottest Foci ever made. But, I'll say that the MK1 RS would be the best.

Agreed on both counts. The RS8 was really sweet. And while neither car had a production chance, the FR200 got us the Torsen ATB from FR, which is, undeniably, the greatest thing that ever happened to the Focus, bar none. As I have said before, there are two types of Focus owners in this world - those who have an automatic torque biasing differential and those who need one.

But regular production stuff, I am partial to the Mk 1 RS. USA production, comp orange SVT 3 door with EAP package.
