Description

This is the most fun car I've owned. Gobs of power, go-kart on steroids handling, and an exhaust note that you can adjust from benign to "no need for music." The AWD system seems to work better the harder you mash the accelerator in the corners (thanks to torque vectoring), and the suspension goes from normal to very stiff in track mode. Here's a review from TopGear: "Let’s start with the engine, because frankly, it’s a revelation. There’s a sniff of lag when you plant your right foot, but that’s closely followed by a wall of torque – 325lb ft or 347lb ft on overboost for 15 seconds. There’s a rally-style warble from the exhausts, not too dissimilar to the old Focus RS’ five-pot in fact, and an intense turn of pace. The sole-choice manual gearbox is a delight to use, not as quick in a drag race as a twin-clutch auto, but so much more involving. The Focus’ trump card is its four-wheel drive system that can send up to 70 per cent of the power to the rear axle, and then up to 100 per cent of that to either of the rear wheels. Toggle up through Normal, Sport, Track and eventually Drift mode and the RS get progressively more lairy – to the point where you can toss it into corners and execute big drifts with consummate ease. Channel your inner Ken Block into making the morning commute that bit more entertaining. Step back from the limit and it still brims with energy: the steering loads up beautifully in long corners, the brake pedal has a high biting point but plenty of feel and there’s just enough body roll to help the car feel mobile and alive underneath you." **Usually available to rent same day, but I may not have the opportunity to detail the car if booked with fewer than 4 days notice** **You must fill with no less than 91 octane and save all fuel receipts.**

I love dogs, but I don't love cleaning up their hair after them. If you want to bring a dog, no problem. But I request a reasonable cleaning fee due to the time it takes to vacuum up the hair from the upholstery and get it perfect for the next guest.

Faqs

  • What if I need to return the car late?

    Returning the car late will usually be fine. Just text or message me as soon as you know you're going to be late.

  • What kind of fuel does it require?

    This car requires 91 octane. Please fill using premium fuel.

  • Where is the registration and insurance information?

    The registration is in the glovebox. The insurance is provided by Turo, so do not use the insurance that is in the glovebox - that is for my personal driving.

Nick was incredibly flexible and very easy going! His car is immaculate - inside and out - and, as you would expect from a Focus RS, an absolute thrill to drive. A five star experience without a doubt. Thanks Nick!!!!
