Ford Australia has announced that it actually release the focus harder Core RS Limited edition hot Hatch revealed in June.

The allocation of Australia will be 500 units, each with a price of $56,990 ($6000 more than the standard RS approach) and each painted in nitrous blue (red will not be offered here), and the first local deliveries begin in November. The bad news is, as reported in June, the limited edition – 1500 examples of which are intended for the United States and Canada, with Europeans offering the car chassis and cosmetic extras as a package of options – is designed to mark the F Inal of Focus RS production.

Ford Australia has confirmed that the production of the hottest focus ever, which is held only in Saarlouis in Germany, will end for next March for our market, meaning that the final shipments will arrive here around Mid-2018. Subsequently, the hyper-Ford hatch fans will have to wait for the blue oval to produce a new version of the RS very top of the range of its new generation of focus, which should not appear until the end of 2018 in the oldest and most likely in 2019.

Given the current (third generation) The emphasis has been put to the water in 2011, but the current Focus RS has not been put in place for another five years on 2016, it could be in 2024 before to see another Focus RS. As previously, Ford has revealed after the comments of customers, the title of the acts of the improvement of the Focus RS are a Mühlner Motorsport limited-skid front differential and 19-inch wrought alloy wheels with tires 2 cup of experimentation. Sport of the 235/35R19 Michelin.

They are the only mechanical improvements and the latest are available to purchasers of the Focus RS standard for an additional sum of 3500, however there is a host of other extras. The complete list, including all the Focus RS options, includes:

  • Quaife Limited sliding front differential
  • The performance wheel pack including 19 inch forged alloy wheels with 235/35R19 Michelin Pilot Cup sport 2 tyres
  • Hatch-mounted rear spoiler, mirror caps and Roof finished in absolute black
  • Recaro Shell seats with exclusive blue Nitro Leather
  • Active City Stop (autonomous emergency braking)
  • Nitro Prestige Paint
  • Insulation glass
  • Capable of 0-100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, Ford’s most fearsome focus has never been a success since its arrival down in July 2016, after which it was named best sub-$100000 car performance in the last year’s CarSales.com.au Car
  • Awards of the year.

Despite its tiny package, it offers a giant slewing performance of a 257kW/440Nm 2.3 liter EcoBoost Turbo-four-cylinder gasoline paired to a six-speed manual transmission and Ford performance ALL-wheel drive system with mode Drift, more selectable drive modes and variable shock absorbers.

2018 Ford Focus RS Design – Black and Blue
The black and blue package is complemented by the rear privacy glass and the 19-inch forged alloy wheels with RS center bushings, behind which are nested four-piston Brembo monoblock brake calipers painted in bright blue. Those tires are not just to show, either because they are stronger and have improved the impact resistance, more suitable for regular track work, basically.

And that is also the favored domain of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres equipped as standard for the limited edition Focus RS. While these tires are considerably better than their predecessor in the wet, a look at the semi-Slick tread pattern is all you need to know that they are definitely biased toward using dry track.

In fact, we tested them again with the usual Michelin Super Sport Rubber on a dry gymkhana circuit and it is clear that the most Centered Cup tyres give the extra bite approach, control and responsiveness. The turn-in is sharper, less direction angle is required and, as the sidewalls are stiffer, the body control is also improved, reducing unwanted sudden weight transfer.

Michelin tells us that the tire of the cup is much more suitable for the sustained driving of the track as well. The disadvantage (with exception of the partially compromised wet-time performance, obviously) is that the stiffer flank also means a new reduction in ride quality, and one of our few bugbears with the focus RS. In short, do not buy the limited edition with these tires if you only use your RS to wander to work and come back every day.

You will get tired of the Recaro Shell seats (now in an exclusive two-tone leather finish using blue nitro again) if you do as well, as they are firm to say the least. However, for their purpose, they are excellent to keep it in place and look fantastic. It’s too bad they’ve gotten too high. We would be tempted to look at modifying them ourselves is a problem.
