We can't divulge the details about the production-spec 2012 Ford Focus just yet (you'll have to wait for next week's Paris Motor Show coverage), but when it comes to what Ford's new global C-car will be like to drive, this video should explain a lot.
It's no secret that the new Focus was heavily tuned by Ford's European team, meaning both the hatch and sedan should prove to be pretty engaging steers – just like their Fiesta siblings. In this video, we see a nearly completed prototype running around Ford's handling course, and judging by the sights and sounds from this two-minute clip, we're pretty eager to get our turn behind the wheel.
If the standard-spec Focus looks this good, imagine what FoMoCo has in store for the hotted-up ST. Follow the jump to watch the video of the Blue Oval small car doing some test laps. Thanks for the tip, Yaroukh!
