 The second generation Focus RS is the Focus that Ford originally claimed they would never build – a limited run 300bhp, 'super-hatch'.  But we’re delighted they did, and make no apology for being enthusiastic about this remarkable little car with its huge twin-blade spoiler at the back, aggressive body kit, and ballistic performance from the turbocharged 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine.  Only 11,500 examples were built in a production run that lasted a little over three years, with just 4,000 finding homes in the UK.The RS may not have had four-wheel drive, but a combination of Ford’s trick Revo-Knuckle front suspension, a Quaife limited-slip diff, and well-judged ESP did a great job of putting the power down and managing the torque-steer while still providing plenty of involvement. The chassis was stiffened by about 30% and bigger drive shafts, a wider track, lower ride height, and a faster steering rack translated into remarkably civilised road manners.  With 301bhp and a massive 324lbs ft available, the RS could hit 60 mph in under 6.0 seconds and topped 160mph, all accompanied by a distinctive five-cylinder warble, plenty of turbo chatter, and even the occasional pop and bang from the exhausts.  And when you weren’t on a charge, the RS was a polite and practical hatchback capable of returning 25-30mpg, easy to park, offered plenty of boot space, and was reasonably quiet at a constant speed.  However, with its gaping grille, 19-inch wheels, flared arches, deep diffuser, and a wing that would embarrass a Porsche Turbo, the RS leaves you in no doubt about its intentions.This 2009 Focus RS Mk 2 is finished in seriously cool Frozen White and is in simply immaculate condition. It was purchased new by its original owner, a Ford enthusiast, from Burns Garages Ltd, in Cheshire on 23rd April 2009 and, we understand, was the 1st Focus RS available in the North / Midlands at the time. It was specified from new with Continental Contact Sport 3’ Tyres, the 6-speed manual gearbox, Sony DAB Radio and 8 speakers, a heated windscreen, and auto-levelling Xenon headlights with jet wash. The interior is finished in Ford Grey and Blue cloth and the Recaros appear unmarked, as do the carpets, in fact the whole of the interior is virtually in 'showroom' condition.The car has been maintained to ‘Original Standard Ford Specification’ by Burns Garages with five Service Stamps, the most recent being recorded at 9,004 miles. The current indicated mileage is around 9,500. All the electronics function as Ford intended and the stereo codes and paperwork are present in the original handbook wallet. The car's original Purchase Invoice and ‘Sales Receipt’ are contained in the comprehensive History File alongside previous MoTs and service invoices.This is a comparatively new vehicle for a classic car auction house but the demand for sporting Fords, no matter what vintage, seems to continue unabated, and with this impressively low mileage and history of care, be sure not to miss out on this really superb example.
