With this being the highly anticipated vehicle it is especially to north americans, they might just try to push for a slightly higher than current market price. It sure has enough to justify that for those who really want an RS.
I was thinking that with high demand dealerships might sell for over MSRP. Do you think demand will be that high?

That's the base cost though. I took at look at the ford site and I will need to pay and extra 1.5-1.6k for freight fees alone. But this is for Canada. Not too sure about the U.S or the UK.Ford will be bringing the 2016 Ford Focus RS to America next spring. So that means we have about a year to wait for this exciting model to be parked nicely in our driveways.
The Focus RS will debut at the New York International Auto Show next week, so that is when US customers will be bale to get their first real life look at the hot hatch.
As far as price goes, we don't have clear details, but people speculate that it will be priced somewhere above $30,000 and will probably undercut the Golf R which starts at $36,595.
I thought I heard the Ford fellow talking vaguely about pricing while standing in front of the Stealth Grey car and saying that it would be priced competitively with its main rival the Sti. So whatever those come in at hopefully the RS will be in that neighbourhood.
