MR Car Design Ford Focus RS Takes the Hottest of Hatches to 355-hp


German tuner MR Car Design has transformed Ford's Focus RS into a viable contender to Audi's RS3 and BMW's 1-Series M. Taking one of Europe's most popular hot hatches, MR Car Design pushes out 355-hp out of the turbocharged 5-cylinder engine, a 54-hp increase from the factory 301-hp. The enhanced performance comes courtesy of an ECU reflash, MR Car Design downpipe and exhaust, high-flow catalytic converter and a K&N air filter.

In addition, MR Car Design combines its horsepower increase with a slight diet for the Focus RS. No details on the weight loss were specified but MR Car Design claims its Focus RS will blitz to 62-mph in 5.9 seconds. Other upgrades include r a set of KW V1 coilovers.

No pricing was announced, but does it really matter… the closest we get to the RS on this side of the Atlantic is the new Focus ST.

The factory spec Focus RS will do 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, how is it that 54 more horsepower and a weight reduction couldn't produce any sort of gain?
