Thumbs up Top Gear Awards 2003

The Ford Focus RS has won the Top Gear Awards 2003.

The Focus picked up the overall award & also The Best Drivers Car award, beating the following cars, Subaru Impreza WRX STi Prodrive, Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG & the Audi S4.

Top Gear Car of the Year - Ford Focus RS
Best Driver's Car - Ford Focus RS

I think were missing out on a great car in the Focus RS.

Thats an awfully bold statement considering the rave reviews the RS has been getting in the UK.
However if FPV can produce a Focus that can match or better the RS I'd be interested.

Its got to at least be able to match these stats though

158kW/310nm
0-60 = 5.9s
1/4 mile = 14.6
18" OZ Racing alloys
Brembo Brakes
Leather

an aussie spec focus RS will have more kilowatts but will somehow manage to be slower in everyway.

Looks like that little Focus is a pretty damn good car.

would you want the FPV Focus to outrun the GT?

Right now, if it was built to "RS" spec, then it would match GT times, denting the GT's reputation.

Quicken the GT first, then bring a Hot Focus. That's my logic anyway.
