The Swansong goodbye to the Latest MK3 Focus RS, introduced as the all new model in 2016, the Heritage Edition marked the end of production in 2018. Just 50 UK cars were produced to mark the 50th Anniversary of the EU RS brand, for the 75 (ish) Ford Stores that sell RS product, taking into account that some examples were reserved for the Ford Heritage collection, CEO and Marketing, majority are now in collections, these are ultra rare. Popularity of these modern classics has grown hugely recently, you only have to see the market prices of the MK2 Ford Focus RS500 and in comparison they were 10x more readily available.
Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain, said: “The RS brand is hugely important to Ford and is recognised across the globe, however it has a special place in the hearts of UK Ford fans. This latest model is the best RS we’ve ever produced, so it seems a fitting tribute as we approach its 50th anniversary.”
Starting life with the 350Bhp Ecoboost Engine, 6 Speed Manual Gearbox with a Four Wheel Drive system and Launch Control, these cars had the Mountune FPM375 kit from factory, reaching 0-62Mph in an impressive 4.7 Seconds and carrying on to 165Mph.

What the Motoring Press Say:
50 examples of the Ford Focus RS Heritage Edition will be built, with deep orange paint, more power and a Quaife limited-slip diff
Ford’s Focus RS hot hatch will go out of production in April this year, but the brand isn’t quite finished with it yet. A new Heritage Edition has been launched, with more power, extra equipment and a unique ‘Deep Orange’ exterior colour. As well as the striking paintwork, the Heritage Edition benefits from grey brake callipers sat behind black alloys, with contrasting black door mirrors and a black rear spoiler. Inside, part-leather Recaro seats, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel and privacy glass are the kit highlights.
But it’s not just a cosmetic upgrade, as Ford has installed a Quaife limited-slip differential to the front axle of the all-wheel drive RS, designed to improve traction and control in hard cornering. The limited-run model also gains the dealer-fitted ‘FPM375’ Mountune upgrade, boosting max power from 345bhp to 370bhp. Torque is also up 30Nm to 510Nm thanks to a recalibrated turbo and induction kit.
Fast Ford fans, we have a sombre date for your diary. On Friday 6 April 2018, the final MkIII Ford Focus RS will burble its way off the Saarlouis factory production line in Germany, and the Drift Mode-equipped hot hatchback’s time will be done. RIP. If you’re not sold on the hue – inspired by the classic Ford Escort Mexico no less, as 2018 marks half a century since the Escort arrived in the UK – then the RS Heritage Edition’s spec might sway you. And if you’re considering making a canny future investment, then be prepared to pay a premium
