Ford of Europe has yet to release the pricing on the new 2009 Ford Focus RS – heck they still have yet to release official performance figures like the 0 to 60 time and the top speed. But that’s not stopping Britons from running into Ford dealers to sign up and put down deposits.
According to AutoTelegraaf, 1,000 Ford Focus RS units have already been accounted for. 40 percent of the buyers have asked to get their Focus RS in the Electric Green shade that Ford showed at the 2008 London International Motor Show. Other colors will include Electric Blue and Frozen White.
Power for the new 2009 Ford Focus RS comes from a turbocharged version of the Duratec 2.5 liter 5-cylinder engine that produces 296-hp with a peak torque of 221 lb-ft. 0-60 mph is said to come in under 6 seconds.
