Making Our Own Ford Focus RS In Germany

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


We asked if we could go the Ford factory in Germany and work on a Focus RS. Amazingly they said yes so we flew to Germany to help put together our own car.

We also caught up with the lead vehicle designer and performance engineer to see what they thought about people like us modifying something that they have been working on for years.

And of course then hit up a track to do some skids…

A huge thank you to Ford Australia for letting us make this video.
We approached them about our idea and were stoked they agreed to let us into the factory. They did cover travel, crew costs and also paid for a delicious schnitzel at a German restaurant.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we’ve gone about it, but we can’t promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won’t harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you’re doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you’ve seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

WOW WOW WOW! I couldn't get the smile off my face for the entire video. Well done lads on a magnificent experience with the team from Ford Germany and and congratulations on a brilliant choice of car for the Mighty Car Mods Garage… Very envious indeed. Truely MAD!

Some of these Ford guys hated having you there. I can promise you that. haha.. You set them back a day, at least. Still friggin' awesome, though.

Alpha Machina says:

We call them both side skirts and rocker panels in the US, depending on where you're from and who you talk to about it. But, I think the US is more ethnically diverse, so that's why.

Buddy Sacks says:

Did yall install a Mustang head gasket lol?

EpicGamER says:

Ethan Marvick says:

Hopefully the head gasket holds up.

Lian Pangilinan says:

Man Ford has stepped up their game!!!

benbennit says:

The open block engines on these cars are junk. Absolute scandal by Ford's own making.

Nick DaRose says:

J.C. Kohle says:

YEAAAAHH! what everybody else already said man. I am moved brothers.

Mick Rambo says:

Did the head gasket make it through the assembly process?

javier escontrias says:

I've been a Mitsubishi guy for ever but I'm definitely getting one of this cars.

The Missing Link's Younger Brother says:

Has the head gasket gone yet. The engine is badly designed. The tops of the cylinders in the block are not supported causing movement which leads to gasket failure at around 20-25k miles?

Loved the part where you were playing moog in the background and working on your car ?

Benjamin Henrie says:

how do you guys have enough money to make these videos?


You guys should do trucks

metagen77 says:

So thats why there are engine problems lol!

quepasatiburon says:

Remember that when building the engines one should used the head gaskets specific to the RS engine instead of the one from the 2.3 Mustang engine. I mean, we do not want to have any engine problems!

wow guys so cool.

ryvr madduck says:

Did you parole officer know you guys left the country? I guess you had permission, it's all good. Great video. Did you get to keep those cool looking vests?


The Focus RS is one of Ford's best cars ever made and also a great rally car. You guys need to check out the new Honda Civic Type R FK8 the way it's been made, the specs, etc. you will love the car. Also, it drove on the Nurburgring and beat the Golf R and also Focus RS. Can I mention that the Civic is now turbocharged? You will love that car, Marty and Moog!
