Heavily upgraded, including a Quaife five-speed sequential airshifted gearbox, Precision turbo kit, and an Alcon brake system, it's ready to dominate the track. Estimated to be worth £32,000 - £36,000.

Registration No: HX11 CYU
Chassis No: WF0GXXGCDGAJ81986
MOT: July 2024

The Focus is a compact car designed under Alex Trotman's Ford 2000 plan, which aimed to globalize model development and sell one compact vehicle worldwide, the Focus was primarily designed by Ford of Europe’s German and British teams. The second generation Focus RS is the Focus that Ford originally claimed it was unlikely to manufacture, however they did and the latest ‘Hot hatch’ was born. One of the most controversial aspects of the car was its drivetrain, which remained front, not four-wheel drive. After awarding the car five stars, this is what the team at Auto Express had to say about the new Ford Focus RS when launched: “The engineers have done an amazing job. It’s got storming performance, amazing handling and grip, but also real character thanks to that charismatic five-cylinder engine.”



This particular Focus RS is not your run of the mill car! First registered in 2011, the V5C shows that the car has been through the hands of 4 former keepers. The car has been substantially upgraded throughout its life, with a huge box of receipts to showcase all of the work that has been completed throughout the years. Our Vendor, who owns a well established race tuning business, acquired the car in 2020 with the intention of showing the car and using it on track but has decided to move it on due to not having the time to enjoy it. The list of upgrades includes the following:

 

  • Quaife five speed sequential airshifted gearbox with paddle on the steering wheel
  • Aim Dash
  • Precision 6266 50mm Turbo Kit
  • Waste Gate
  • Syvecs S7 ECU
  • Rear camera
  • Twin fuel pumps & braided lines

On inspection, the car appeared to be in fine fettle and the vendor has advised that the car performs very well - with all of the upgrades, the car has been dynographed for 630 BHP! The vendor has advised that he will be having a fresh MOT issued in time for the sale.
