VIDEO: Ford Focus RS misses record with 8:26 Nürburgring lap time

006_09escortrsabPoint to point, the Ford Focus RS is touted as the fastest vehicle the company has ever made. It reportedly lapped Ford’s Lommel test track in Belgium, where we had the chance to sample the second-fiddle Focus ST, faster than the Ford GT supercar. But it’s still wasn’t fast enough to set a new Nurburgring lap record for its class.

As promised, Ford took its latest hot hatch around the ‘Ring in pursuit of the front-drive record currently held by the track-focused Renaultsport Megane R26.R, which set a blistering time of 8 minutes, 17 seconds. Ford’s time? 8 minutes, 26 seconds. The session, which you can watch in the pair of videos after the jump, was held in conjunction with German car mag Sport-Auto, whose editor-in-chief Horst von Saurma-Jeltsch, a noted master of the Nordschleife, performed the driving duties. And while the Focus RS may have come up some nine seconds slower than the Renault, you can bet Ford will give it another shot or two before claiming defeat.
