The Mk3 Focus RS is a great drivers car, and has steadily been increasing in value.
Potentially the last internal combustion Ford RS, as any replacement looks very likely to be hybrid if they make another at all which could make this a great investment, or indeed an almost new & fantastic drivers car to be enjoyed.

Body & Paintwork:
The bodywork condition of this car, is simply superb.
We have checked all panels with a paint depth gauge, & can confirm all paintwork is original, including the wheels.
The Nitrous Blue paint gives a great shine & in the sun the pearl really does ‘pop’.
The roof, mirror caps & spoiler ends have been vinyl’d with a satin black finish, this has been done to a high standard & really compliments the car & colour. A Mountune spoiler blade finishes off the exterior upgrades perfectly.
All badges, lights, & windows are in perfect order, just as you would expect.
Wheels are all very good inside & out without any marks.
None of the usual scuffs, scratches, dents or even stone chips are present on the vehicle.
A beautiful example all round.
Interior & Trim:
As per the exterior, the interior is simply as new.
The optional upgraded ‘Shell’ RS Recaro seats are in unmarked condition, as is the steering wheel, & gear knob.
The RS kick plates even still have the factory protection films in place.
The LUX pack was optioned upon ordering, so the car does benefit from electric folding mirrors, cruise control, keyless entry, rear parking sensors & rear privacy glass.
Along with the high factory specification of dual air conditioning , auto headlights , auto rain sensing windscreen wipers , auto-dimming rear view mirror, SYNC2 with 8? touchscreen DAB audio, bluetooth/usb, SYNC2** with 8? touchscreen DAB audio, quickclear heated windscreen, power start button, plus more.
Nothing has been changed nor modified, it is exactly as it left the Showroom.
RS mats are still fitted, and everything works just as you would expect.
The 2016 RS created a stir by going back to a 4 cylinder engine (as opposed to the 5 cylinder found in the Mk2).
The new 2.3 litre, 4 cylinder Ecobooost engine is smaller, lighter and more efficient than the 5 cylinder unit.
It offers better fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions &, in standard trim, more power & torque (345 bhp and 470NM).
With the FPM375 pack fitted, the claimed 0-60 time is 4.5 seconds, which considering the Focus RS is still utilising a manual gearbox for driver engagement (with launch control) is a very competitive 0-60 time against much more expensive modern ‘hot hatches’ whilst still being a more driver focused experience with the manual gearbox and selectable driving modes – including the much talked about ‘drift mode’.
This example is brilliant to drive, great fun, with a great noise & impressive performance.
Running Gear:
All running gear is exactly as you would expect of such a low mileage car.
The car has genuinely not seen rain, so the underside condition is superb & as new.
The clutch & gearbox are a joy to use, and all tyres are of course in good order.
The wheels are all in original finish.
A set of H&R lowering springs & spacers give the car a fantastic stance, arguably the stance it should of had from factory.
A very impressive driving experience.
