ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Specially designed for high performance, Ford’s 2.3 litre Ecoboost engine produces 345bhp and torque from 470Nm. A twin-scroll turbocharger with intercooler and high capacity compressor allows for greater airflow and charge density enabling a 0-62mph in just 4.7 seconds and a 165mph top speed! The engine bay is spotless and just as it left the factory. With AWD torque vectoring control and a precise 6-speed manual gearbox, this sure-footed RS is a formidable performance machine.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory optional Gloss Black forged 19in alloy wheels were a £975 upgrade over the standard rims and remain in excellent condition with one wheel having a tiny touched-in mark. Factory Michelin PilotSuperSport 235/35/ZR19 tyres have ample tread. Huge ventilated front discs are gripped by factory optional painted and branded Brembo callipers, another great performance styling feature but importantly stop the car quickly and safely.
The Mk3 Ford Focus RS was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, and 1,500 UK orders were made within a month with the first cars reaching customers in Spring 2016 and immediately sold for over list price! This pampered Ford Focus RS was registered new on the 30th April 2016 by Stoneacre Ford of York and retained by its first speculative owner for just 7 days before being sold to its long-term Ford RS enthusiast and only other owner, David Lake, on the 7th May 2016. His care for the car is evident throughout with four services being carried out, the last by Ford main dealers TC Harrison in April 2022. The head gasket assembly and Power Control Module recalls have been carried out by Ford to offer complete piece of mind. The vehicle presentation pack incudes the Ford performance document wallet containing all handbooks, the RS Owner’s Manual Supplement and all point-of-sale literature along with maintenance invoices and MOT certificates. Both original remote keys are present. A stunning example for the Blue Oval Fast Ford fan.
