Ford Focus RS Uber with Romanian rally champion – Video
Catching a ride to or from the airport is anything but exciting, especially when you choose a ride sharing service for it. Not when the driver is a Romanian rally champion and his vehicle of choice the latest Focus RS, though.
Suspecting that this is not a usual Focus, the few lucky Uber clients tried to guess how many ponies are hiding under the hood, but no one got it right – that’ll be 350 PS (345 HP), by the way, in case anyone needs a reminder. Nevertheless, the Focus RS’s power became obvious once they accepted the young racing driver’s challenge and were taken to a nearby closed course to see what Ford’s hot hatch can do.
Pushing the Drift button, the car’s rear end slid away, while those riding shotgun grabbed the door handle and squeezed it hard. The video was put together by Ford Romania, in an agreement with Uber’s local branch, and it’s not the first time when an automaker teams up with a ride sharing service to promote either a new technology, an event or a vehicle.
