The new Focus RS was inspired by Colin McRaes WRC rally exploits and hence featured a 2.0-litre Duratec RS engine with an advanced turbocharging system and oil-spray cooled pistons to achieve more power which eventually peaked at 215 bhp and 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds. The chassis was developed and a Quaife torque-biasing differential fitted to ensure optimal front-wheel-drive tractability. Suspension was byuprated offset coil springs with Sachs Racing dampers whilst stopping power was provided by Brembo brakes. The cabin was competition-inspired and featured leather andAlcantara Sparco seats. The exterior of the car took a number of styling cues from the WRC rally car and even used custom 18.inch O.Z. Racing alloy wheels as a nod to its competition cousin.Offered here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 2003 Ford Focus RS finished in the only colour offered Imperial Blue with a half leather Sparco interior. In excellent condition throughout, this car has covered just 37,100 miles and has been maintained impeccably by a Ford Main Dealer, as recorded by the multiple stamps in the service book. Supplied with the car is a complete book pack, spare keys and a UK V5c, along with a fresh MOT that will be carried out prior to the sale. With later Focus RS models becoming increasingly collectable, this two-owner Mk.1 example is where it all began, and makes for a great modern classic with the DNA of so many legendaryRS Fords.
