The first shipment of Ford’s highly regarded Focus RS has arrived in Australia, as these photos from a forum, surely confirm.
With just three colours available (Ultimate Green, Performance Blue and Frozen White) and a total allotment of 315 cars, you better be quick, if you fancy one.
With 224 kW and 440 Nm from a 2.5-litre, turbocharged five cylinder driving through a RevoKnuckle front wheel-drive system, the Focus is a formidable road hugging street weapon. 0-100Km/h will arrive in 5.9 seconds.
“Bespoke Continental tyres wrap around 19-inch alloys connected to the Quaife Automatic Torque Biasing Helical Limited Slip Diff – meaning grip will be plentiful”.
There’s always a price to be paid for both performance and exclusivity, so at $59,990, they’re not exactly a bargain, but I wouldn’t call it expensive, either.
