The Mk3 Focus RS is a great drivers car & has steadily been increasing in value.
Potentially the last internal combustion Ford RS, as any replacement looks very likely to be hybrid if they make another at all which could make this a great investment, or indeed an almost new & fantastic drivers car to be enjoyed.
When Ford UK announced that production of the RS Focus was coming to an end, they decided to produce three limited edition models.
The RS Edition, RS Red Edition and the RS Heritage Edition, these have become instant modern classics.
Only 300 examples of the RS Red Edition were ever produced.
Visual differences over the standard Mk3 Focus RS were the Race Red paintwork, gloss black roof, mirrors & rear spoiler as well as grey-finish brake callipers.
Mechanically the RS Red Edition was fitted with a Quaife mechanical limited-slip differential which makes a substantial difference to front end grip & driving experience.
This example has had only 1 previous owner, it has Ford service history detailed below, having been trailered from storage to the local Ford dealer for servicing, it also has all booklets & of course 2qty keys.
2020 – 85 miles
2022 – 85 miles
First MOT will be carried out at point of sale
Body & Paintwork
The bodywork of this example is exactly as you would expect – simply superb.
We have checked all panels with a paint depth gauge, & can confirm all paintwork is original, including the wheels.
Being a RS Red Edition, this example sports the gloss black roof, spoiler & mirrors which are a brilliant contrast against the Race Red paintwork.
All badges, lights, & windows are in perfect order, just as you would expect.
The factory optional Black forged 19in alloy wheels are of course unmarked, still sporting original tyres.
A beautiful example all round.
Interior & Trim
As per the rest of the car, this interior is simply as new.
The Recaro ‘Shell’ seats are in perfect order, looking superb in part leather & Alacantara with the blue stitching.
The infotainment screen still has the protective film in place as do various other areas.
All switchgear is unmarked, likewise the steering wheel, gear knob, handbrake & foot pedals are like new.
Everything operates exactly as it should do & the carbon trims look great in the Red Edition.
The 2016 RS created a stir by going back to a 4 cylinder engine (as opposed to the 5 cylinder found in the Mk2).
The new 2.3 litre, 4 cylinder Ecobooost engine is smaller, lighter & more efficient than the 5 cylinder unit.
It offers better fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions &, in standard trim, more power & torque (345 bhp and 470NM).
0-60mph in 4.7 seconds is certainly very impressive, especially in a manual transmission car & a top speed of 165mph!
As the pictures show, this example is totally as new throughout, including the engine bay area.
Completely untouched in terms of any modifications, totally as Ford intended.
All running gear is exactly as you would expect of such a low mileage car.
Factory optional Black forged 19in alloy wheels were a £975 upgrade & are of course unmarked, still sporting original tyres.
The car has genuinely not seen rain & is stunning underneath.
