Watch Hoonigan Racing Division drivers, Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud, test the Ford Focus RS RX which is competing in the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

Cape Town - We're a couple of days into our test week with the new Ford Focus RS.

In case you've been living on the moon, it's the blue oval's most powerful hatchback yet, producing 257kW and 440Nm from its 2.3-litre turbocharged engine. 

'Our' car, wearing a 'shadow black' cape looks as angrier than the Hawks handing out arrest warrants. Sporting aggressive air dams, a massive wing, 19" wheels and two storm water pipes for exhausts the RS is arguably the most 'shouty' hatch on sale in SA. 

But can its presence compete against one of only seven 'Wonders of Nature' in the world? Well that's what you need to tell us...

Below you can view a few photographs taken on our rooftop parking lot in Cape Town showing a perfect view of Table Mountain in the background. 

Does the Focus RS have the potenial to upstage a rock that defines Cape Town and serves as landmark for its millions of residents and tourists? 


Does the Focus RS grab your attention more than Table Mountain or does the tourist attraction, famous for its cable car rides, have too much 'game'? Email us your thoughts here.
