Apart from updates to the exterior of the car, Ford has taken the chance to show off its high-performance large-bore exhaust system, which features electronic valve technology in the exhaust to really allow the four-cylinder engine to scream.

The Focus RS is powered by an updated version of Ford’s 2.3-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine found in the Mustang. The powerplant develops more than 235kW, and transfers the power to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

Look out for the next Focus RS on the streets in the coming months. It will be a global model.
