Ford Focus RS revealed in production colour

New 316bhp Ford Focus RS debuts in new Nitrous Blue production colour scheme

Ahead of its North American debut at the New York Motor Show next month, Ford has revealed the 316bhp Focus RS in its production Nitrous Blue colour scheme.

Shown for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, the showcar, which debuted in Performance Blue was designed only to match that of the Ford GT and will not be made available to buyers. Other colours which will be on the options list include Shadow Black, Metallic Grey and Frozen White.

The Focus RS will be sold in North America first time with the hot hatch also destined for markets around the world. Ford has confirmed first customer delivers in Europe will begin early 2016.

It’s one of 12 new performance vehicles Ford will introduce globally by the end of the decade, with the Ford GT and Mustang Shelby GT350 also on that list. The Focus RS comes powered by a 2.3-litre four-cylinder Ecoboost turbo engine with Ford hinting at upwards of 316bhp. Four-wheel drive will be employed for the first time, with a Drift Mode also being fitted.
