Watch Ken Block Belt The New 2016 Ford Focus RS Around The Factory

Does Ken Block ever travel anywhere in a straight line? Or is he full-time #slideways? Whatever the answer, Ford decided to lend him a prototype version of the beastly new 2016 Focus RS to do a few fancy tricks around the factory before sliding it out to the assembled media for the unveiling.

Sure, it's not Block's modified Ford Fiesta, or that bonkers Mustang from a few months ago, but the 2016 Focus RS sounds amazing.

The new Focus RS is packing the same 2.3-litre engine, 4cyl, turbocharged from the upcoming Ford Mustang EcoBoost model, with roughly 320 horsepower under the bonnet and all the creature comforts you'd expect from a top-of-the-line hot hatch.

It's packing a manual gearbox (thank sweet, merciful Christ), and tears up the road with 320 foot-pounds of torque.

I can't wait to see more of it.
