History, development and general characteristics

The Ford Focus RS is as close as it gets to the prestigious version of Colin McRae’s car for the World Rally Championship. The Focus RS runs on the same wheelbase and track as the WRC Focus. The RS on the Ford Focus name stands for Rallye Sport and it is a high performance version of the Focus. The Mark I version had a short life and was only in production from Octuber 2002 to Novermber 2003. At a rate of 30 units per day, no more than 4500 cars were released to the market. The model was built in the German Saarlouis Assembly Plant.

The return of the Ford to the RS versions, after the Escort RS, was a success. The second generation would only be released in 2009.
