You’ll need to be nifty to grab one of these 50

Just 50 Heritage Edition Focus RS models are being built exclusively for the UK before the RS goes out of production in April.

 

Finished in a unique “Tief Orange” (“Deep Orange”) body colour, the car celebrates 50 years of the RS in the UK, going back to the original Escort in 1968.

 

There are other styling tweaks apart from the colour, but what will make non-owners green with envy are features such as the front mechanical Quaife limited-slip differential (LSD) and the dealer-fitted FPM375 Mountune upgrade, increasing overboost power from 350PS to 375PS, and torque from 470Nm to 510Nm.

 

Ford Performance engineers are behind the car’s development. It will be priced at £39,895.
