Arrow My car of the day, Focus RS heritage edition

Ford will build only 50 UK examples of this heritage edition RS which coincides with 50 years of the Escort nameplate, a car that was synonymous with many RS models through it's history. The Focus RS will go out of production in April to make way for the next RS due in 2020, so this heritage edition will be it's swansong. This heritage edition will benefit from more power, 370 BHP up from 345 BHP courtesy of Mountune and also extra equipment and this unique 'deep Orange' exterior colour. Other benefits are Grey calipers hiding behind Black alloy wheels as well as black contrasting door mirrors and a Black rear spoiler. Inside we have part leather Recaro seats, a sunroof, heated steering and privacy glass. A new Quaife limited-slip diff has been fitted to the front axle which is designed to improve traction and control in hard cornering. Torque is also up to 510 NM due to a re-calibrated turbo and induction kit. The price tag for all of this is £39,985 which is a hefty £7,000 more than the standard RS, however it should get a better resale value due to the fact that only 50 cars are heading to the UK and as a last-of-the-line model.

They will sell very quickly and wouldn't surprise if you never see one on the road, except on a show day!

Will all be sold already and garaged. More chance of seeing a unicorn in the flesh! I like orange cars but this doesn't look the best shade to me, dare I say dull?

I like that but as others have said they'll be rare on the road.

Orange does nothing for that at all. It's ugly.

Everton will think there's that guy who's spent a fortune making his ST look like an RS.
