One More Thing…

June 17, 2010

A few months ago, we all thought that the truly epic Focus RS500 was going to be the last hurrah for not just the current model RS, but for the whole ‘LV’ Focus range, but it appears Ford have other ideas. Ford UK has announced that for a price of $855 (AUD) you can have WRC inspired wheels on any new RS as pictured.

Taking the ‘standard’ RS’ wheels and giving them a powdercoated style white finish, Ford has really topped off the current RS – ready to start all over on the all new 2012 model…

FORD OFFERS WHITE WRC-STYLE WHEELS TO MARK END OF FOCUS RS PRODUCTION

BRENTWOOD, Essex, 15 June, 2010 — As the last UK-bound examples of its Focus RS superhatch reach British dealers, Ford is offering a special, WRC-style wheel option to commemorate the end of production.

The 19-inch, white-finished alloy wheels will be available at £500 per set, including VAT, to bring the visual impact of Ford’s award-winning fastest Focus even closer to that of Mikko Hirvonen’s ‘company car’.

David Calder Ford of Britain Product Manager, said: “The demand for Focus RS has been astounding. In barely a year since launch, we have sold almost our entire UK allocation – thanks in a large part to this Focus RS continuing the proud tradition of combining high-performance with practicality and affordability.

“We expect demand to be high for these last cars and we’re giving customers the chance to personalise them with this exclusive option.”
