Ford is offering a special limited series WRC-style wheel as an option to the last few buyers of its Ford Focus RS super hatch to mark the end of production in the UK.
With the Ford Focus RS already a rare item itself – and the even rarer Ford Focus RS500 already sold out – it is expected these wheels are sure to be in hot demand and will no doubt become a must-have for collectors.
The 19-inch multi-spoke wheels feature a bright white finish and are intended to emulate the visual style of the Ford Focus WRC car driven by Mikko Hirvonen.
David Calder Ford of Britain Product Manager, said: “The demand for Focus RS has been astounding. In barely a year since launch, we have sold almost our entire UK allocation – thanks in a large part to this Focus RS continuing the proud tradition of combining high-performance with practicality and affordability.
Available as an A$850 option per set, which includes the UK’s value added tax, it represents only a fraction of the cost you would expect to pay to buys these wheels by any other means.
“We expect demand to be high for these last cars and we’re giving customers the chance to personalise them with this exclusive option.”
