When Ford first introduced the new Focus RS to the European market, it had planned to produce only 1,200 units. However, due to high-demand, Ford of Europe has decided to build an additional 400 units of the 305-hp Ford hatchback – exclusively for sale in Germany.
Ford said that this is the final decision and that there won’t be any more Focus RS units build after the 400 units are completed. If you live in Germany and you’re interested, you can order the car now and expect delivery in the early part of 2010.
Refresher: Power comes from a 2.5L 5-cylinder Duratec engine with a large Borg Warner K16 turbocharger. That makes a total of 300-hp and a peak torque of 324 lb-ft.
