Ford is choosing to bid farewell to the awesome Focus RS with a Heritage Edition that’s limited to just 50 cars.
Production officially halts in April, but this final run of extra-special versions (hopefully built with the correct head gaskets) will have more power, bonus equipment and a new ‘Deep Orange’ paint job.
The power boost will come from the existing and much-loved Mountune FPM375 upgrade. That means the 2.3-litre turbocharged four-pot jumps from 345bhp to 370bhp, while torque stretches by 22lb ft, to 376lb ft.
It also gets a Quaife mechanical limited-slip differential on the front axle, which is nice. Inside there are part-leather Recaro seats, a sunroof and a heated steering wheel for extra Drift Mode comfort. The price for these 50 exclusive cars is a hefty £39,985, over £7000 more than standard.
