Ben Collins is perhaps best known for his exploits as The Stig on Top Gear. Beyond that, Collins has been a successful race driver and driver educator for years.

Here he takes the 257kW 2016 Ford Focus RS for a spin to demonstrate its capabilities through four driving modes. The video also hints at the sound of the highly-tuned 2.3-litre four-pot, which sounds pleasingly warbly, just like its five-cylinder Mk2 predecessor.

Enjoy.
