Fastest Focus Is Bbc ‘top Gear’ Car Of The Year

The fastest ever production Ford, the scorching Ford Focus RS, is first across the line in BBC ‘Top Gear’ magazine’s 2003 Car of the Year awards, taking both ‘Best Driver’s Car’ and overall ‘Car of the Year’ trophies.

The car that returned the RS performance brand to the Ford stable beat the competition hands down, with the Top Gear team saying: “Whether carving across a B-road, tackling the test track or raging around a race track, the Focus RS fizzes with a frenzied excitement no rival can come close to capturing… We jumped out of it, grinning broadly and knew we’d found a winner.”

Also one of the fastest selling Ford’s ever, Ford Focus RS is now officially sold out in the UK, with all the first year’s production of 2000 cars now taken up by enthusiastic customers.

Ford Focus brand manager, Cathy Davies, said: “We've been delighted by the reception for Focus RS, which reflects our own enthusiasm and belief in the return of the RS brand. This award, together with the news our first year's production is now sold out, truly vindicates our passion for the RS.”
