When Ford launch something special, they really do launch something special. As a company they were very nearly on their knees 12 months ago but what a turn around they seem to be having. And now this! The European Domestic Market Ford Focus RS500. It was so hot that even the mass press breached the embargo to tell the world.

Powered by the Volvo sourced 2.5-liter five-cylinder she will be pumping out 350 PS and 460 Nm of torque (345bhp and 339 lb/ft) through the RevoKnuckle and Quaife limited-slip differential supported FWD chassis. It’s so cool I’m almost tempted to move back to the UK to buy one.

You can bet your bottom dollar you will never see one of these on the roads in the Middle East…Sad I know.

Check back at the end of the month when hopefully there will be some video footage of this monster to see.
