I'm also surprised at the differences. Seems like it should be pretty much the same. I wonder if there are significant differences in what UK people expect from their hot hatches or something like that.
Seems like looking into other vehicles they get from other car makers and even from Ford could shed some light on this. Could just be a case of Ford wanting to continue to give them the things they're used to.

Took a look myself and the UK buyers have a few more trim options than those in the US. They have "Standard RS Recaro seat - Blue Bolsters" to better match a blue exterior and they have an extra black paint option. Probably a few more too that I didn't see. Stinks that we're missing out on them.

Your explanation probably hit the nail on the head. Their regulations are also different so it's easier for them to get more goodies than us.
I think we're not getting the shell RS seats because they don't have side impact airbags and the NHTSA standards are preventing them from coming to the US.
It's a combination of both I'd say, they have a bigger market and different regulations.
