Ford Focus RS looks to the Nürburgring for a record in the hot hatch segment

The Ford Focus RS has the Renault Megane R26.
R in its sights, as it gets back to pursuing records in the category of hot hatches, on the Nurburgring.
The French rival completed the Ring in 8′16″9 last year, and the 300 hp of the Focus RS will put itself to the test, with 70 hp more.

Apparently a test car with 250 hp and Continental road tyres made 8′27″ on the track, so hopes are high for the Focus RS.
According to Ford, based on these figures, the Focus RS could get round in 8′15″ with standard tyres, reduced to 8′12″ with semislick options.

We’ll wait and see what happens at the Nurburgring in spring.
