Ford may have sold out of the limited-edition Focus RS500, but it still has a couple of ‘base’ Focus RS units left in its allocation for the UK market. As the last UK-bound examples of its Focus RS hot-hatch to reach British dealers, Ford is offering a special white WRC-style wheel option to mark the end of production.
“The demand for Focus RS has been astounding,” said David Calder Ford of Britain Product Manager. “In barely a year since launch, we have sold almost our entire UK allocation ““ thanks in a large part to this Focus RS continuing the proud tradition of combining high-performance with practicality and affordability. We expect demand to be high for these last cars and we’re giving customers the chance to personalise them with this exclusive option.”
The 19-inch, white-finished alloy wheels will be available at £500 per set ($740 USD).
Refresher: Power for the 2009 Ford Focus RS 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. 0-62 mph comes in about 5.9 seconds with a top speed of 163 mph.
