3 Hot Ford Hatches from Hot Wheels!
I could call this post 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly', but I'll refrain. The Hot Hatch is back with cars like the Golf GTI, the new Civic hatchback, and of course, the high power Ford Focus RS. The RS is a brand new casting and is beautifully done. While I appreciate the 'ice racer' livery on the '12 Ford Fiesta, and it's a cool car in real life, the Hot Wheels casting is actually rather ugly when you strip away the fancy liveries. Just look at the back end. Yuck. The '09 Ford Focus RS would be the 'bad'. Not a bad casting, but not a pretty car in real life and it certainly doesn't look good with flourescent orange windows.
Okay, now that I've got that off my chest, I have to say I'm extremely impressed with the new '16 Ford Focus RS from Hot Wheels. The front detailing and clean blue paint scheme combined with nice proportions is exceptional. Now if only we can get the 'liquid blue' color on the casting like we've seen on the GT350, Ford GT and Ford Raptor. They'd make an incredible set. For now, I'm satisfied with the plainer blue color on the Focus' debut.
The '09 Focus isn't exactly a bad casting. It looks quite nice in some of the cleaner decos it's seen. The version featured here looks bad though. The Fiesta has a lot of potential but something's off, especially at the back. Enjoy the photos and let me know what you think of these 3 hot hatches from Ford in the comments below!
