That is, if you haven't fallen in love with the 320 horsepower, all-wheel drive 2016 Ford Focus already. And if you haven't, I would encourage you to check your pulse.


What you're about to watch is a video tour of the Focus RS from the UK's Evo magazine. It was shot in secret before the car's big public debut this morning. As such, it's unclear on some of the specs we now know.


Specs like a 2.3-liter turbo four with 320 horsepower, torque vectoring all-wheel drive, optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and many more drool-worthy features. But the video also reaffirms that Ford has global ambitions for this car. The RS won't just be sold in Europe, but also the U.S., Australia, China and other countries. Excellent.

Another tidbit: At least in the UK, Evo guesses it will be priced similarly to the Subaru WRX STI, which makes sense.

In the video shoeless motoring journalist Henry Catchpole gets a rundown of the car from its exterior designer, Ernesto Rupar, who also designed the Fiesta WRC car.

Then there's a treat at the very end, something they weren't supposed to catch on camera — the sound of the Focus RS firing up, and bit of its exhaust noise. It sounds mean as hell, and I can't wait to hear more.

Love is a beautiful thing.
