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 one of the fastest hot-hatches of its era!
The example we present to you here is actually Ford’s third iteration of this performance family car. The MK3 Focus RS was keen to provide even more performance that its already capable predecessor; powered by a new engine, a 2.3 inline 4 “EcoBoost”, that actually has one less cylinder and drops down in cubic capacity than the previous model but is still able to deliver more power, torque and fuel economy when compared to its older sibling. The new RS also features a torque vectoring 4wheel drive system that far surpasses the handling capabilities of the older generation, with incredible road holding and circuit performance. These driving enhancements, alongside the Focus’s everyday usability, have left a lot of the automotive press suggesting that this is the best Focus RS yet.
