But were 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 (0-60 in 4.7secs /163mph) from the turbocharged 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine. The most controversial aspect of the car was its drivetrain, which remained front, not four-wheel drive. Ford's engineers developed and patented a system called the "Revo-Knuckle" which was designed to eliminate torque-steer by keeping the kingpin offset angle consistent even under heavy load, and with 301bhp and a massive 324lbs.ft available, that was most of the time. The chassis was stiffened by about 30% and bigger driveshafts, a wider track, lower ride height, and a quickersteering rack translated into remarkably civilised road manners. In the raw, the RS looks a bit of a 'beastie'. 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. However, it's still a Ford Focus and is good to drive, easy to park, has plenty of boot space, and is reasonably quiet at a constant speed.Finished in Ultimate Green, this 2009FocusRS Mk2 has had a full main dealer service (Arnold Clark and Stoneacre Ford - 11 stamps) carried out every year of its life and has still only covered 16,558 miles. In 2019, at 16,478 miles it had the big service that included cambelt and water pump schedules. This is the rarer, more focussed specification void of the 'Lux Pack' and specifically optioned without dated technology sat nav in the ethos of Ford Motorsport simplicity. Certainly one of the best examples that we have seen, it's inremarkably original and gleamingshowroom condition. The Lime Green canvas, Sage GreenAlcantara and leather RS Recarointerior appears unmarked, as do thewheelsand the OE fit tyres are 6-7mm. It comes with all manuals, two keys with the service key and itsunused Ford Continental puncture repair kit.All in all, this represents the chance to buy adrivers specificationFocus RS Mk2in the best colour, with two previous owners, service record, receipts and all MOTs with the current valid until August 2021.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 in this rare spec with very lowmileage, be sure not to miss out on this amazing example.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location Monday to Wednesday betweenbetween Thursday 29thOctober - 12thNovember.
