You might recall that Ford was planning to air a documentary about the design and construction of the all-new Ford Focus RS. The documentary, called “Rebirth of an Icon,” would be released in eight individual parts, or “episodes,” with the first set for release on September 30. This past Wednesday, the second installment premiered, titled “Design and Development,” on the Ford Performance website.
It’s not an easy task to take a vehicle from family-focused hatchback to high-octane hotrod. Building any new vehicle takes a lot of work by people with very different skillsets working as a team, and this was a special case. That’s why Ford brought a camera along for the ride to record the process, compiling footage and turning it into a special documentary called “Rebirth of an Icon.”
The exciting Ford Focus RS is scheduled to be shipped to United States retailers like our Ford dealership near Greenville, SC, in spring of 2016. For those who can’t wait that long, Ford is graciously offering us a look at the high-performance road car a little earlier than that. The Focus RS will make its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show, and it’s sure to be a real show-stopper!
