Video: BMW M140i vs Ford Focus RS

Even if the newest Ford Focus RS is no match for many other sports cars within its class, some new challengers might give it the proper headache, and that one might be no other than the hot M140i from BMW.

Video below, created by AutoTopNL has put together both outstanding models for an acceleration and sound check-up, both models coming with impressive driving capabilities and performance under the hood, and that thanks to their advanced aerodynamics.

The testing was carried out on Autobahn, in Germany, which is the perfect place for drag races or straight line challenges. But before you take a closer look at the video, please find below some information that you have got to know before placing your bet on your favourite model.

To start with our beloved BMW M140i, the top of the line variant from the 1-Series comes fitted with an I6 turbocharged engine, which develops 320 horsepower, being sent to the rear wheels via a high-performance automatic transmission with an open-differential. It also comes with the optional all-wheel drive system.

On the other hand, the Focus RS`s 2.3-liter turbocharged churns out 350 horsepower, paired to a six-speed manual and all-wheel drive, with new differential and some other fine mechanics, which all together makes it the favourite of our test.

But perhaps you might be in for a big surprise. Just watch the video and tell us if you bet on the right ride!
