FORD FOCUS (C346) RS HERITAGE 2018
We have a very rare opportunity for you to buy a halo car from the Blue Oval. With only 35 delivery miles, we are delighted to present the Ford Focus RS Heritage Edition for a sale price £79,990 including the personalised registration plate T14NGO.
Described in a contemporary Autotrader article as ‘the most performance-focused in the line up’, the Ford Focus RS Heritage Edition represents the final iteration of the Mark 3 Focus which ceased production on 6th April, 2018. With a higher-specification drive train and a power upgrade to 370bhp to make it the fastest variant of a Focus RS produced, this Tief Orange future classic is a nod to its RS spiritual forebearers.
Just 50 examples of the Heritage Edition were produced, each priced from £39,865, which feature RS Edition finishes such as grey brake calipers, black forged alloy wheels, black door mirrors, black rear spoiler, part-leather Recaro seats, heated steering wheel, sunroof and parking sensors. Whilst its appearance is something to leave your pulse racing, the FPM375 Mountune power upgrade that comes as standard, increases output by 25bhp and torque by 30lb ft, bringing the 2.3 lite EcoBoost engine’s maximum to 376lb ft. No changes have been made to the cars GKN-supplied driveline technology at the rear, so Drift Mode is still able to send up to 100% of torque to each rear wheel to enable the car to perform powerslides and drifts.
Bought from new on 14th April 2018, the vehicle was sold to a specialist garage and then on to its recent owner, who took meticulous care of the car having dry stored it along with other vehicles in his collection in a purpose built facility. Kept on trickle charge in a carcoon, it has been regularly started and allowed to run up to temperature and even serviced on 12th April 2019 despite having accumulated no miles whilst in ownership.
This future classic is astonishingly rare and we can confidently describe its condition as perfect making it a fantastic edition to a collection of fast Fords, or a broader collection of rare vehicles. Alternatively, with the price of fast Fords increasing rapidly, it could simply serve the new owner well as an excellent investment opportunity.
