Torque vectoring allowing 70% to the rear wheels, 100% of which can go to either of those wheels.

I can't exactly tell you why, but it's a light. The mini has it:


If I remember correctly from Top Gear UK, it's a law in Europe. The Focus RS would be probably build oversea OR with Euro Spec.

It's the rear fog light. European models have them.

Any guesstimate on MSRP pricing? I wouldn't be surprised to see upper 30s.

Here is a link to the press release:

https://media.ford.com/content/fordm...-focus-rs.html

Interesting quote from the body:

"Projected to produce well in excess of 315 horsepower..."

On par with the 2.3L Ecoboost in the Mustang which is pretty good considering the Focus is transvers mount and a tighter package.

I did not see anything on projected price or if there will be a restricted number of units.
