  1. if you notice at the start of this clip that the fuel light is on, i wonder if they took the back seats out also. Still very impressive, not sure if I'd want to do 165 in it though

  2. Can't wait to buy this!!! I was a big Subaru fan and currently drive a 2006 WRX, but since they totally fucked up the looks of the new STI's and WRX's I will gladly be moving over to Ford.

  3. Everybody is talking HP, Im over here like: "LOOK AT THE TORQUE!" almost 55lb more than the Civic Type R. If this is as conservative as the other EcoBoost engines are from factory, the tuning scene will be HUGE with crazy gains!

  4. yeah people keep saying mustang have better performance but let's look at the weight difference. the focus would spank the mustangs ass

  5. Notice the gas light is on to shave weight. Normal situation on street, you'd get over 5sec. Still fast though.
    Too bad it's a hatchback. They are Ugly and less useful/practical than a sedan. I don't know why everyone is so hatchback oriented these days.

  6. Well… Always loved the WRX STI in till 2015 where now it looks like a corolla with a body kit. So can't wait to get my hands on this bad boy 😀

  7. Can't wait for the scumbags at the stealerships near me to mark these things up. Going to have to go hours away to find a legit dealership unfortunately. My 15 WRX is a great car for the money, but even I knew it was a hold me over car until this came out.

  8. someone help me out with this. 2015 STI 300 hp 297tq 0-60 4.7, 2016 RS 350hp 350 tq……4.7? that's a hell of a difference of power to have the same. and please save your ford jokes, I am looking for a serious answer.

  9. Sadly this awesome car is saddled with a cheap aftermarket awd/vector system from a unknown company in Austrailia with little to no experience. No thanks. This car will be in the shop more than on the road. I'll wait till they have so many issues, that a good replacement system will get put in, then I'll buy.

  10. Honda type R has the top speed record over this. And will give RS a run from 0-60/98 kph. Bra, the Type R lit up the Nurburgring in under 7:51. I don't think the RS can do that. 2900 lb 305 hp Type R or 3400 lb 350 hp RS. The Type R has the better weight to power ratio. 9.5 Type R, 9.72 RS.

  11. For the $, I'd rather get a Camaro SS and smoke the new 5.0 or any RS. Heck, ford doesn't have a speed title in anything anymore. Not trucks, not hatches, not sedans, not sports coupes. The New Cam SS spanks new GT350R in acceleration even. Ford products are getting to soft and poor handling, slow acceleration. God forbid anyone buys a musta g GT automatic, it's 0-60 is 5.3 sec and [email protected] in the 1/4. The stick at least hits 4.6 0-60 and [email protected] in the 1/4… All stock of course, as tested. But why? You can have 2006-2011 c6 Z06 performance in a new SS with just a tune and run high 11's at 120-122 mph. Ford has become last on race day

  12. Hanging the tail out in corners is not a good traight if you want to win races. I prefer true awd over this tail happy garbage with the unknown awd/tq system that'll likely fall apart or break often.

  13. I could see paying this kind of cash for a good awd system, but ford cheaped out on this car. It's just wrong. Tell Hamidi to get lost.

  14. If this thing throws the tail out that much, what's the point in awd. I want my car to handle on a race track circuit, and with the rear stepping out, it gives others opportunity to pass you on the inside.

  15. Why is it so slow to 62 , my impreza cosworth does it in 3.7 sec . the impreza cossy must still be the ultimate hot hatch.

  16. This is genuinely insane to me the fact of how nice this car looks, especial with that sky blue paint job and how it is able to hit 0-60 at 4.7 seconds.

  17. Had a WRX; great car. Got an RS. Fun factor increased to a level that I fear losing my license.

    I feel like a teenage kid learning the thrill of driving for the first time. Mustang may be faster. There's no way it's more fun.
