Renaissance are very pleased to present this 2010, unmodified and manufacture standard, Ford Mk2 Focus RS with Factory fitted "Lux" 2 Pack.
The “RS” badge is well renowned in the world of Fast Ford enthusiasts. Originating from Ford’s Motorsport division in the 1960’s; the RS actually stood for “Rallye Sport” and meant that any Ford model special enough to bear its namesake had been designed specifically for rally racing. Due to Ford’s repeated successes in rallying during this era the RS badge very quickly became synonymous with Motorsport and Performance, with demand and residual values steadily on the rise for any RS model, it is clear to see that this legacy still lives on with Ford enthusiast’s and collectors.
The Focus, launched in 1998, was created by Ford as a replacement for the Escort. Despite its humble family car appearance, it was decided by Ford’s performance division that this would be a suitable base for the next RS vehicle. Released in 2002, almost 10years since the last RS variant, the car benefited from; a turbocharged 2.0 4 cylinder engine, limited slip differential, Brembo brakes, improved chassis/suspension components and aggressive wide-arch styling. The end result was the MK1 Focus RS, which was one of the fastest hot-hatches of its era!
The example we present to you here is actually Ford’s second iteration of this performance family car. The MK2 Focus RS was keen to provide even more straight-line speed than its predecessor, while trying to tackle the inherent understeer issues normally faced by any high power front-wheel drive car. The end result was astounding, Ford developed the “RevoKnuckle” front suspension, based on the MacPherson strut, this new engineering design allowed Ford to separate steering and suspension movements. Once this new suspension was combined with a clever torque-biasing differential from Quaife, Torque steer was dramatically reduced and the building block for the MK2 Focus RS was born.
What really set the MK2 Focus RS apart, and what makes this car appealing to future collectors, was the engine. Unlike the majority of 4pot engines found it its rivals and predecessors, this car featured a 2.5 litre turbo charged inline 5 cylinder. This not only produces more power (300bhp & a whopping 325lbft of torque.) but provides a unique musical intonation, sound and character that is rarely heard of in today’s world of 3 & 4 cylinder eco engines.
A summary of the vehicle’s specification is listed below:
- 2.5 litre 5 cylinder turbo (300bhp & 325lbft)
- 6speed manual gearbox
- Ultimate Green pearl paint
- 19” RS alloy wheels
- Ford "Lux" pack 2
- Auto lights
- Keyless entry
- Reverse parking sensors & camera
- Aux & USB port
- Power-folding electric mirrors
- Electric windows
- Headlight washers
- Recaro Sports seats
- Traction control
Due to this performance oriented nature of the RS many owners decided to modify or tune their cars. Although this allowed drivers to unlock more potential from their already competent cars, it also means the majority of examples left on the road have had questionable or unknown levels of stress put upon them, potentially pushing beyond Ford’s original manufacturer engineering limits. This makes original and unmolested examples, like this particular car, extremely rare and sought after.
Covering on average less than 6000 miles a year since its registration in 2010, just like the majority of cars here at Renaissance Classic Sports Cars this vehicle comes with a comprehensive provenance and history portfolio. The car will be supplied with the original Driver’s Manual, stamped maintenance book and Ford wallet, along with any of the previous owner’s invoices, receipts and previous MOT certificates.
