In 2002 Ford launched the Focus RS, returning those famous letters to one of its cars for the first time since the Ford Escort RS Cosworth. The new Focus RS was inspired by Colin McRae’s WRC rally exploits and hence featured a 2.0-litre Duratec RS engine with an advanced turbocharging system and oil-spray cooled pistons to achieve more power – which eventually peaked at 215 bhp and 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds. The chassis was developed and a Quaife torque-biasing differential fitted to ensure optimal front-wheel-drive tractability. Suspension was by uprated offset coil springs with Sachs Racing dampers whilst stopping power was provided by Brembo brakes. The cabin was competition-inspired and featured leather and Alcantara Sparco seats. The exterior of the car took a number of styling cues from the WRC rally car and even used custom 18inch O.Z. Racing alloy wheels as a nod to its competition cousin.

Offered here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 2003 Ford Focus RS finished in the only colour offered – Imperial Blue with a half leather Sparco interior. In excellent condition throughout, this car has covered just 37,100 miles and has been maintained impeccably by a Ford Main Dealer, as recorded by the multiple stamps in the service book. Supplied with the car is a complete book pack, spare keys and a UK V5c, along with a fresh MOT that will be carried out prior to the sale. With later Focus RS models becoming increasingly collectable, this two-owner Mk.1 example is where it all began, and makes for a great modern classic with the DNA of so many legendary RS Fords.
