Ford has announced this afternoon that the much awaited Ford Focus RS has now started to roll off the production line at its plant in Saarlouis, Germany.
Long awaited, and much anticipated, the Focus RS is going to be available in 20 countries throughout Europe, with its biggest markets being Germany and the UK.
The Focus RS has a number of unique features – apart from its performance – including a wider track and wheel arches, new front and rear bumpers and a choice of three colours – Ultimate Green, Performance Blue and Frozen White.
But its the performance and price (£24,995) that make the RS a potentially successful car for Ford. With a 0-60 of under 6 seconds and 300bhp at its disposal, this is one fast hatch.
A decent spec is available as standard, including 19″ alloys, AirCon, Xenons and a Cat 1 Alarm (you’ll probably need that!).
We’ve actually seen a couple of these floating around (we are in the heart of Ford country, after all) and they look pretty good. This is one car I don’t think Ford are going to struggle to sell, even with money tight.
