Ford Focus RS goes festive with new Red Edition

New limited edition Race Red Focus RS on sale in the UK now, with just 300 units available

Ford Focus RS Red Edition

Ford has revealed a new limited edition Focus RS, boasting a unique colour scheme and complete with the Quaife limited-slip-differential found on the Focus RS Edition model.

Called the Focus RS Red Edition, unsurprisingly, it comes with a new Race Red paint hue on the bodywork. It’s a colour option that has been available in the United States for a few months now, but has been reserved for this special edition model in the UK.

Alongside the red bodywork, it gets grey brake calipers, black alloy wheels, plus a black roof, door mirrors and rear spoiler.

In the cabin it receives a partial leather interior with Recaro seats, carbon-fibre trim pieces and a heated steering wheel. Cruise control with a speed limited function and rear parking sensors are equipped as standard.

Aside from the new limited-slip-differential, the RS Red Edition gets no new performance tweaks. It retains the same 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the regular Focus RS, developing 345bhp and resulting in 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 165mph.

Just 300 units of the Race Red Focus RS will be available in Britain, and the cars will be built between February and March 2018. Order books are open now, and the Focus RS Red Edition is priced from £36,295.
