We would like to lead this post with a message, namely that any Ford Focus RS was wounded in the shooting of this video and in the process of developing the compact sports brand. But that would miss the truth. Ford recognizes that a total of 28 units of the Ford Focus RS, preliminary prototypes born only to end well, destroyed were destroyed. In any case the end of these tests, this destruction (not free), is laudable as security.
Although sometimes we do not think too much about it, how important we are to the safety of a car with 350 hp, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.7 seconds? Mucha . And that is why Ford took every precaution to ensure that sport compact, plus fast, was safe. And that was the reason that led them to perform these tests of impact, front and side, destroying 28 prototypes, even considering that this chassis and this body is already well proven in terms of safety, as it is based on that used any other Ford Focus.
And while the Ford Focus RS also receives the same safety rating in Europe, the body EuroNCAP, the Ford Focus (impact tests are performed on a volume version, and not specifically about a sports version) Ford chose to make their own crash-test at its facilities in Cologne (Germany).
Although we perhaps its orange body insensible, undecorated, which accused in the death row, do not forget that under the cover of each of these 28 prototypes hides a Focus RS.
A pity, for sure.
