The Ford Focus RS Lets You Switch Off All Of Its Electric Nannies Completely

In Europe, the 2016 Ford Focus RS produces 324 foot pounds of torque, according to the government. In reality, it gives you the full 350 all the time and will light up its tires mid-corner have you decided to switch off the traction control. But you can, and that’s important.

Ford says they bisected dissected all other competing hot hatches, only to find that their systems remains active in the background to cut back on the performance even when a light on your dash states otherwise.

That’s not the case with the RS. After all, this is a street car with a drift mode as standard. Nuts!
