Ford of Europe has announced a delightful little factoid today, in the UK alone they have received 1500 orders for the MK3 Focus RS!
But it gets better, just over 500 orders were received before pricing and specs were announced (officially) at the Frankfurt show in September.
Andy Barratt, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director, tells that the majority of orders are from existing RS owners.
“These enthusiasts are taking great care in building their optimum specification. We expected those first in the queue to be exacting about their requirements, and so it has proved, with many opting for motorsport-style Recaro shell front seats, 19in black forged alloy wheels, Luxury pack, electric tilt/side sunroof and Ford SYNC2 navigation and sound system.”
