That's the blue that people will actually be able to buy. Not as nice as the other blue. :( Nice to see some of these details up close.

i agree about colour, i don't think it is as nice as the darker blue shown in the launch; ken block may be an entertaining driver but i've heard that he didn't like the original 'liquid blue' he was driving and felt this so called, 'nitrous blue' colour is better! eh?

Am not keen on the black alloys... they should be silver...

I guess it depends on preference. I much prefer this 'nitrous blue' over the darker blue. I find it to be a more unique color and it compliments the RS in my opinion. I would have rather the alloys silver though. I wonder if that's real carbon fiber around the exhaust.

If you look at all of his cars he went with really wild color scheme's that pop big time, so it's just natural that he'll like nitrous blue over the original blue. Plus I think nitrous blue better suits the RS for the type of vehicle it is.

just noticing this now but the blue originally seen is along the lines of blues you commonly see from other brands which makes me happy they went the direction they did

Yeah exactly. I do like the nitrous blue over the common blues. Still think i'm gonna go with the black though. Don't want to stand out too much and I really like how the black looks. It blends with all the black plastic bits on the RS nicely.

Just be prepared to deal with all the extra effort that's required when it comes to maintaining black paint.

Black will look good on the Focus RS and then you can play around a bit more with rims if you want to. Black car with gold rims, or silver rims would look great. You don't have quite the same freedom to go with more intense rims when you go with a brighter color.

The bronze wheels look amazing. I can see it working well with black, red or white exterior paint. I like how the bronze is more subtle than gold rims that I have seen.

Bronze wheels with the Nitrous Blue will also look super dope. That's probably what ill got with :)
That's another great combination, in the end Bronze wheels will look great with every Focus RS color. Going to be nice seeing those blue calipers behind them :D
