The Ford Focus is a compact car (C-segment in Europe) manufactured by the Ford Motor Company since 1998. Ford began sales of the Focus to Europe in July 1998 and in North America during 1999 for the 2000 model year. In Europe, South America, North America and South Africa, the Focus replaced the various versions of the Ford Escort and Ford Laser sold in those markets. In Asia and Australasia, it replaced the Ford Laser.
As of the first half of 2012, the Focus surpassed the Toyota Corolla to become the world's best selling automobile nameplate. The Focus has been considered one of the 50 greatest cars of the past fifty years by British magazine CAR.
The super-fast, sports-styled Focus RS boasts a 38-year motorsport heritage. This is a serious machine, with the performance, traction and precision of some of the most exotic sports cars. This latest model has a powerful 2.5 litre, five-cylinder engine and advanced racing technology – so you can reach 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in a little less than six seconds and go on to a top speed of around 260 kph (163 mph)! If you’re a fan of speed and excitement, you’ll be a fan of the Focus RS.
