Ford Focus RS 500
Known for its affordable performance cars, Ford invested a lot of time in the second-generation Focus RS in 2009. The car featured a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with 305 HP and brutal performance. However, it was an old-fashioned hot hatch. With all that power delivered to the front axle. It had a trick front suspension to keep the front end in check, but it still had a torque steer effect (via Auto Express).
Ford was getting ready to turn to all-wheel drive for the Focus RS Mk3 but wanted to say goodbye to the front-wheel-drive model with a bang. That bang was the Focus RS 500. A limited production model with 350 HP, matte black paint, and a plaque with the serial number on the dash. It was sold out in just a few days and earned its place in history as the most powerful factory front-wheel-drive hot hatch.
