That other British car show, Fifth Gear, has managed to get their grubby mitts on the 2009 Focus RS and toss it at some curvy mountain roads. Not surprisingly, they kinda liked it.

A 2.5 liter turbocharged five cylinder with 300 horsepower, searing green paintjob, Revoknuckles, Recaro buckets, six speed transmission... perhaps the lustiest forbidden fruit in the hot hatch world right now, it's the 2009 Ford Focus RS. We know it reeks of boy-racer looks but we don't care. We just want to pretend to be zipping around marked stages somewhere deep in the WRC season. The only question now is what color?
