OK, it's not a Focus RS, but I thought that people would still be interested. This is the Ford Focus Sport that is currently being featured at the Essen Auto Show.

The Focus Sport sits below the ST . This model will be offered with two different color schemes: Race Red or Panther Black. Both colorschemes are complete with contrasting black or red roof, diffuser, radiator grille bar, and side mirror caps. The Focus Sport also comes with a set of black 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior of the Focus Sport has a similar black and red color scheme. There are also aluminum pedals.

The Focus SPort will go on sale in Germany shortly afterthe Essen Auto SHow comes to a close. It will 3 engine options. There is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine, available with either 150 HP or 182 HP. A diesel engine is also offered, a 2.0-liter TDCi unit that delivers 150 HP.

Thought people might be interested mostly for the look of the model. Maybe it will inspire you.

Red car with black roof....cool. Black car with red roof... NO. Red roof looks tacky, without the red roof it would look much better. But attention to detail is on point inside and out.

I think the red accents would look great on a black Focus RS but not too sure about the red roof. Red or black, a different colored roof looks off to me.

Yea the red roof looks amateurish. Like someone decided to just wrap the roof, which is basically what this is.

I dont understand why car manufactures are slapping the "sport" name on these vehicles when they are only hitting 150hp give or take. Its just like my Subaru Impreza "sport"....with all 148 horse. Its slow as dirt.

Cool looking focus though. Not bashing the car itself, I can see a market for this kind of vehicle, just not getting the name scheme.

They're doing it because it hits a special cue with consumers, people want more and something special but also affordable, so taking on more of a sporty image rather than a well rounded sport package gets them buy in.

Sometimes its more about the look than the performance that people want. Kick in a slight increase in horsepower and people have smiles on.
