Finnish rally star Mikko Hivronen takes a surprisingly casual quick lap down the Nordschleife in the 350 HP Focus RS500, proving both the Focus and Mikko can keep all four wheels on the ground.


Having sipped from the cup of Focus RS we'd love to have a shot at a big swig of the more powerful RS500. Our good friend Conor McNicholas — editor of Top Gear magazine just drove it and told us "It's *well* torquesteery, but lovely growly note and popping on the over run," followed by "It's just eaten my cat."
