Ford is on a performance revival, with announcements like the release of a new GT and the return of the Focus RS. Ford confirmed that it’ll be powered by the same 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine doing duty in the forthcoming Mustang. Power is rated at 258kW and 440Nm of torque. It’s expected to land on local shores in the first half of 2016. The car made its dynamic debut at the recent Goodwood Festival, in the hands of the skilful Ken Block. Take a look. The audio is via a GoPro camera attached to the vehicle – which explains why things are slightly out of kilter.
