2018 ford focus rs street performance at sema las vegasAcross Nevada’s borderline comes a convoy - a chrome-clad collection of hatchbacks, rally-runners, and aftermarket sedans. They each promise exceptional power, proudly flashing their Big Blue Oval badges with every mile; and their rear spoilers gleam in the October sun.

SEMA will never be the same.

From October 31st to November 3rd the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show will deliver the best in power and speed - introducing drivers to the latest generation of mechanical mastery. Among this year’s most anticipated vehicles is the 2018 Focus RS Street Performance, a Ford hot-hatch that should decimate records and the competition alike.

As CNET explains, this platform will leave SEMA audiences stunned. Boasting a 2.3L four-cylinder engine, the Street Performance should yield up to 350 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque. The carbon fiber body (which delivers sleek side panels and wing-style fenders) is light and lean, with up to 500 pounds removed from the chassis; while a BC Racing coilover suspension pairs with Baer brakes for superior traction. Though no transmission specs have been released, the use of a shift knob suggests a sport-tuned manual option - capable of accommodating both track curves and highway lanes.

The 2018 Focus RS Street Performance is boldly designed, with Ford delivering a show-stopping yellow fascia. Black inserts complement the aggressive profile, while a revised A-Pillar construction emphasizes the wide front glass. It’s no surprise critics are already expecting a SEMA victory.
