The second-generation Focus RS is the Focus that Ford originally claimed they would never build – a limited run 300bhp, 'super-hatch'.  But we’re 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 Ford’s 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 weren’t 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.
