This video shows the Ford Focus RS running at top speed.

A video appeared on the foreign YouTube channel, which shows the run of the high-performance Ford Focus RS at the highest possible speed.

Just at 246 km/h, the driver shifted into sixth gear. The top speed was 283 km/h.

Citing stricter emissions standards, Ford has eliminated the fourth-generation Focus RS version from its lineup.

The upside here is that fans of the brand can still buy the less powerful ST version of the Focus hatchback and wagon, equipped with a manual transmission and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

As for those who prefer all-wheel drive and even more power from the hot hatchback, the Mk3 RS would be a better option.

Keep in mind that this is not the regular top-of-the-line version of the previous generation Focus.

Its 2.3-liter turbocharged gasoline engine has been upgraded to extract 440 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.

Details on how the four-cylinder powertrain was upgraded are unclear, but we do know that German tuners RH Renntechnik and XBM Tuning contributed to the power gain.

The AutoTopNL blogger took the upgraded hatchback and decided to test its capabilities on the autobahn by checking its top speed.

It hit 284 km/h, which isn’t too bad for what is essentially a compact family hatchback.

Truth be told, the GPS confirmed speed was a bit lower at 275 km/h.

Perhaps more interesting is the shift in gears from fifth to sixth at nearly 250 km/h, while the Focus RS kept going and going to accelerate even faster.

Needless to say, the car no longer had a factory-installed top speed limiter programmed to engage at 265 km/h.

This EcoBoost engine has enormous tuning potential to unleash even more power.

British tuner Mountune sells a «package» of upgrades to boost power to 520 hp.
