The big question for me about the new Ford Focus RS is: can it do sweet AWD donuts? The answer: yes, at least when Ken Block is driving.

The 2016 Ford Focus RS has disappointed a number of people by lacking a center differential, and looking every bit like FWD+ rather than some Evo-esque AWD. Here's the new car smoking all four tires anyway, despite its somewhat disappointing Haldex reputation.

That said, this is Ken Block at the wheel, and it's a potentially-tweaked preproduction prototype. Your axis-spinning mileage may vary.
