Ford Europe has just announced that the Ford Focus RS is sold out Worldwide. The only way you will get one now if you have not already placed an order is by finding a dealer has already ordered one for stock. I think we know that he will be charging well over the list price now!

Good - now maybe they'll share an accurate # of RS's sold globally and by region.
8,800 units produced in MY 16 which was January 2016 to July 2016 and an estimated 13,000 units still to manufacture in MY 17. There is still the question of the 500 RS500 units as well.

Most definitely. I wonder if you'll have the people that will buy them and try to re-sell them after they're all sold out

Ford build approximately 40 RS units each day. In the seven months of MY16 they have publicly stated 8,800 built. MY17 will run from September16 to end of July17, allow for a couple of weeks of low production over Christmas and the New Year the numbers seem about right. Then if the RS500 is built take another couple of weeks off. We will have to wait and see what the actual production is.

Umm, I just ordered one... so not sure this is accurate - Ford will build as many as customers will order - they're still producing them..

I do hope so my build slot is January. Your order may well be a dealer build slot that's already been put on the system.

Have a look on You Tube under "Ford Performance Cars Selling like Hot Cakes in 2016".

Rs500

Does anyone know if the RS500 will ever make it to the US? Seems like its in the air from what I read. If the RS500 never makes it, can someone explain what mods it would take to turn a regular RS into the special built RS500 I keep hearing about.

I got my RS Oct 3rd of 2017, it had been sitting at a dealer for a while. It was NOT marked up, but had been ordered for a customer with EVERYTHING possible, including the Y-spoke alloys with Cup 2 summer tires, moon-roof (which I NEVER would've ordered) the winter tire/wheel package, AND a car cover (about $380!!!!) So, no mark up, but high enough base cost! I certainly would've headed to Tire Rack for a winter tire package--have done that with all mine and my wife's cars. Would've saved a good bit. I DID add WeatherTech Floor Liners, and the darker tinted window shades. There was a Red 2018 Limited Edition at my dealer's---I should've held out that I would only get a 2018 RS if they could get one.
