As for the mechanics, the Ford Focus RS also has high performance breaks, RevoKnuckle sports suspension, a limited slip differential, parking sensors, xenon lamps and 19-inch alloys. On the inside we have Recaro spor seats, a Sony 8-speaker system, climate control. Three colours are available: Performance Blue, Frozen White and Ultimate Green that should fit most tastes.

Priced at 59,990 Australian Dollars ($54,675), the Ford Focus RS will be limited to 315 units, so if you want one, you’d better hurry.
