Hyper Ford Focus RS Limited Edition arriving in November
Hot hatch fans rejoice, 500 units of the Ford Focus RS Limited Edition will arrive in Australia during November.
Priced from $56,990 plus on-roads, the special editions come with some slick extra kit to make one of the nation's favourite performance cars even better.
Among the upgrades are a Quaife limited-slip front differential, 19-inch forged alloy wheels with 235/35R19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, Recaro shell seats with exclusive nitrous blue leather application and matching external prestige paint, as well as rear hatch-mounted spoiler, mirror caps and roof finished in 'absolute black'.
Ford says the upgrades are a direct result of customer feedback since the current Focus RS's launch.
"Our new limited-edition Focus RS represents accessible performance at its finest,” said Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance chief engineer.
"Improving on the thrilling driving dynamics of the Focus RS is no small task - but our Ford Performance engineers have delivered a drivetrain capable of wringing every drop of performance from the engine.”
In addition, SYNC 3 including voice-activated sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard, with an 8.0-inch full-colour touchscreen. There are no other options available.
The powertrain is unchanged, with the 257kW 2.3-litre EcoBoost powerplant partnered to six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive.
