Ford releases another limited edition Focus RS

Ford releases another limited edition Focus RS

There's a new generation of the Ford Focus just around the corner, and if past experience is anything to go by we likely won't see an RS version of the auto until well into the product cycle. Priced at £39,895 and limited to 50 examples for the United Kingdom, the Heritage Edition marks 50 years since the Ford Escort started production at the Halewood plant in England.

Priced at £39,985, just 50 of the Heritage Edition RS will be built and sold in right-hand drive.

In comparison to the Red Edition announced a few months ago, the RS in Heritage Edition attire is gifted with an exclusive exterior color: Tief Orange.

If you're not sold on the hue - inspired by the classic Ford Escort Mexico no less, as 2018 marks half a century since the Escort arrived in the United Kingdom - then the RS Heritage Edition's spec might sway you.

There will be just 50 of the RS Heritage Edition models coming to the United Kingdom, and they represent the final special edition RS - following on from the RS Red Edition and RS Edition - as Ford look to extract the final buyers for the RS. It also comes equipped with partial leather Recaro seats, privacy glass, a sunroof, rear parking sensors, power-fold door mirrors, cruise control with speed limiter and heated steering wheel.

But it's not just a cosmetic upgrade, as Ford has installed a Quaife limited-slip differential to the front axle of the all-wheel drive RS, created to improve traction and control in hard cornering. The Heritage Edition also gains the dealer-fitted FPM375 Mountune upgrade, increasing overboost power from 350PS to 375PS, and torque from 470Nm to 510Nm, thanks to a high-flow induction kit, uprated turbo re-circulating valve and calibration.

The RS brand is hugely important to Ford and is recognised across the globe, however it has a special place in the hearts of UK Ford fans.
