Introducing the Focus RS Edition; designed and engineered by the Ford Performance team to more fully exploit the same 350PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that powers the standard Focus RS.
This is achieved by seamlessly integrating a Quaife® mechanical limited slip differential on the car's front axle, providing a better distribution of torque to each wheel, and thereby improving the already class-leading traction from the Focus RS.
The RS Edition comes with a high level of standard equipment, including the RS Luxury Pack, and features styling details that include matt-black painted door mirrors, rear spoiler and foil roof treatment, new black cast-alloy wheels with blue branded brake calipers, and carbon fibre interior trim parts, with race-inspired Recaro seats, partially trimmed in ebony & blue two-tone leather. (Model shown does not reflect current UK specification).
Exterior & Interior Styling
Ford hasn't forgotten the visual aesthetic of the new Ford Focus RS Edition either. A matte black roof, matte black mirror caps and matte black spoiler all add to slightly more aggressive look, when compared to the standard Focus RS. The optional 19" black cast alloy wheels are also included as standard.
Inside, the Recaro shell racing seats, get a flash of Nitrous Blue leather, again giving an instant difference to the standard Focus RS.
Better road traction.
Developed by Ford Performance, the new Ford Focus RS Edition improves the traction of the standard Focus RS by adding a Quaife Mechanical Limited Slip Differential on its front axle, further improving the RS’ class-leading traction. Adding to the already clever AWD system on the standard car, the limited slip diff limits the engine torque delivered to a wheel that has reduced traction on the road surface, and redistributes torque to the wheel with more traction to counteract the onset of wheel spin. This activity results in more grip so that more speed can be carried through the corners.
By controlling the torque delivered to each front wheel, the Focus RS Edition’s Quaife LSD enables drivers to more fully exploit the 350 PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine’s power in high performance driving situations and seamlessly integrates with Focus RS driving technologies.
