Icelander Uses Shiny New Ford Focus RS As A Snowplow: Video

To be perfectly honest, when Ford went about designing the low-hanging front fascia and air dam on the current Focus RS hot hatch, the automaker probably had aerodynamics in mind.

In other words, they likely hadn’t anticipated the eventuality that someone would use it to clear vast amounts of snow from a blanketed drive.

But lo and behold, a Ford Focus RS owner in Iceland has found that the car is actually quite up to the task. You can watch those antics in the video above. The description on YouTube alleges that the capital city of Reykjav√≠k was hit the previous night by the biggest February snowfall it’s seen since 1937.

We have no idea whether that’s true, but it sure looks like a lot of white stuff in the clip.

The Focus RS’ owner, one Daniel Ivanovics, says he just took delivery of the technologically-advanced hatchback three days prior. Would you ever subject your brand-new car to a snowplow test like this?
