Ford Focus RS 'warts and all' documentary finally here

The eight-episode documentary on the making of the Ford Focus RS that the American carmaker teased just a week ago is finally here!

Named 'Rebirth of an Icon', the warts and all documentary covers every stage of the vehicle's evolution, showing the tough car face everything from the rigours of the Arizona desert to the freezing Artic circle.

The first episode went live on YouTube yesterday at 1pm and is entitled The Project kick-off. It sees Gymkhana superstar, Ken Block and Ford's group vice president for Global Product Development and chief technical officer, Raj Nair debate what the car should deliver, from behind the wheel of an early prototype.

The all-new Ford Focus RS available to order now for delivery in early 2016. The car features a specially engineered version of Ford's new 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine delivering 350PS and can accelerate from 0  62mph in just 4.7-seconds. It debuts new Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring that gives the car outstanding traction and grip, and unmatched agility and cornering speed.
