THE STAR that burns twice as bright burns half as long. It seems like the brilliant Ford Focus RS has only just landed in Australia however Ford Australia is already saying its goodbyes with the Focus RS Limited Edition.
Based on the recently released overseas Option Pack, the Limited Edition will receive a Quaife limited-slip front differential and lightweight forged alloys with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s as standard, while cosmetic upgrades include a matte black roof, mirror caps and rear spoiler with blue RS logos and inside the Recaro shell bucket seats score Nitrous Blue leather applications to match the only exterior colour available.
Five-hundred will be offered at $56,990 and they’ll be the last Focus RSs we see for a while. The all-new Ford Focus is due in 2018 but a new RS is not expected until the early-2020s. –
