Description

A totally focussed Focus, the 300bhp super-hatch that Ford said they would never build2.5-litre, 5-cylinder Turbo, 301bhp, 324lb/ ft, 2-wheel-drive, 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, and 160mphFinished in Frozen White with a showroom-standard interior. Lux pack 1Remarkably preserved for a 10-year-old car, areally superb example The second-generation Focus RS is the Focus that Ford originally claimed they would never build a limited run 300bhp, 'super-hatch'. 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 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 Fords 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 werent 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 particular car has had just one registered keeper from new making it an extremely rare example.At a mileage of just 992, it is barely run-in and offers an incredible opportunity today to own yet another Ford performance icon. It is offered with original service books, handpack and history file.
