► Official Ford documentaries on new Focus RS
► Watch all the RS videos here

Ford has issued the latest in a series of teaser videos warming up hot hatch fans to its new 2016 Focus RS. It's a documentary produced by the Blue Oval to promote the fast Ford - and worth sharing if only to see the RS in action on ice and in the desert, not to mention being pedalled hard by king of sideways Ken Block.

Be warned: this is a teaser campaign, with weekly videos released between now and the car's dynamic debut in November 2015. We're posting all the videos here under one roof, so you can hear more about the RS's development back story. 

Watch the final episode in our player above, and the first seven episodes below. We've ridden shotgun in the new fast Focus RS at Ford's Lommel proving ground - read our first ride review here.
