Ford has unveiled the new Focus RS Edition, claiming the vehicle provides even more driving appeal over the regular Focus RS for those looking for something extra.

Dynamic torque vectoring and a Quaife limited slip differential are the key features of the RS Edition, which can be differentiated from a garden-variety Focus RS by its searing Nitrous Blue paint with matte black and carbon fibre detailing.

Focused on performance

The Focus RS Edition boasts the same 350hp from the 2.3-litre engine as the regular Focus RS, but the Quaife LSD promises greater traction for improved acceleration. Ford claims the Focus RS Edition can reach 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds, thanks to its combination of all-wheel drive, Quaife LSD and launch control system.

Inside, drivers will be welcomed by Recaro shell seats, trimmed in Nitrous Blue to match the exterior, and carbon fibre trim details throughout the cabin.

   

Standard safety technology includes privacy glass, rear parking sensors and an autonomous emergency braking system.

The Focus RS Edition was on display at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show, and is available to order now from £35,795.
