Ford's UK dealers have sold the company's entire allotment of RS 500 hatches, but a handful of the standard RS models are still hanging around. While the white rollers wouldn't completely make up for missing out on the 305 horsepower monster that is the hottest of the hot, they will certainly be a collectors item in a few years. Click past the jump for the press release.
BRENTWOOD, Essex, 15 June, 2010 -- As the last UK-bound examples of its Focus RS superhatch reach British dealers, Ford is offering a special, WRC-style wheel option to commemorate the end of production.
The 19-inch, white-finished alloy wheels will be available at £500 per set, including VAT, to bring the visual impact of Ford's award-winning fastest Focus even closer to that of Mikko Hirvonen's 'company car'.
David Calder Ford of Britain Product Manager, said: "The demand for Focus RS has been astounding. In barely a year since launch, we have sold almost our entire UK allocation – thanks in a large part to this Focus RS continuing the proud tradition of combining high-performance with practicality and affordability.
"We expect demand to be high for these last cars and we're giving customers the chance to personalise them with this exclusive option."
