Cape Town - One of the most anticipated 'hot hatches' set to arrive in 2016 is the Ford Focus RS.
The 257kW monster is set to be launched in Mzansi in July and sports four-wheel drive, a six-speed manual and four distinctive driving modes.
In January 2016, Wheels24 reported that apart from gymkhana king Ken Block helping to develop the RS, Ford roped in former Top Gear 'Stig' Ben Collins to show off the driving modes.

In February, Ford turns to someone with years of driving experience and is much easier on the eye than Block or Collins to test its latest Focus RS - stunt driver Prestin Persson.
Watch her test the RS at Ford's Michigan proving grounds as she tries out the four drive modes and describes the evolution of her high-speed career.
