Great cars aren’t designed over night. It takes years of engineering, testing, dreaming, and (sometimes) cursing. It also takes world-class consultants like Ken Block, extreme testing (both in the sweltering heat of Arizona and the frigid cold of the Arctic), and a team dedicated to perfection.

Our “Rebirth of an Icon” documentary series chronicles the highs and lows throughout the design process, putting you in the front seat as the Focus RS was designed and tested. Follow the team as they make tweaks to improve performance and to create a model that will earn the Ford stamp of approval. We have compiled the complete 8-episode series in a playlist below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
