Seems like the demand in the UK is surprisingly higher than expected !
The 4000 units available initially have sold out, but Ford is currently negotiating to bring around 1000 more cars into the UK
The Ford Focus RS is in such demand in the UK that the car maker is looking to put an extra 1000 units on sale.

The initial allocation, believed to be around 4000 units, is already sold out but Ford is still taking orders and currently negotiating with other European markets to increase its production for the UK.

Good news for the UK, not so good for the rest of the world. Delivery in UK is being quoted at over a year. My delivery is into next year and it's been on order for a couple of months.

Anyone who misses out might be in luck depending on when the higher performing RS comes to market, and that will be exciting, finally something along the lines of what we'd get from German car makers and the aftermarket brands that support them.

The higher performance model is I think a stripped out version of the road going car. The 2.3 engine has not got much more power to give, so any performance increases will include loss of weight. Great for the track, but not so good for the road or nipping down to the shops in, with the family.

Just get your order in, now! Otherwise you could be living with regrets for a long while. You know you want one....... :D
I really do ! Looks like I'm going to have to wait for the weekend though, by the time I finish work the dealerships are closed unfortunately :( Really anticipating the anxiety I'll be getting after the order is placed ;)

Why thank you :) Lol I'm definitely going to be going stir crazy soon though. I keep looking at the Mountune parts page and the Project RX and all I can do is day dream about what I would do when I get mine

Unfortunately my friend, I hate to make excuses and prolong things, but I've been getting stuck with stupid weekend shifts so I really haven't gotten around to anything for that matter. Quite disappointing !
