Ford Focus RS Heritage Edition marks end of production

This is the last Ford Focus RS

It's not only a celebration of the current fast Focus, which is set to go out of production on April 6, but of the RS nameplate too - which is celebrating its 50 anniversary this year. Only 50 will be built and they'll only be available to the United Kingdom market. It also commemorates 50 years of the Escort nameplate, a auto synonymous with many RS models throughout its history.

Priced at £39,895 and limited to 50 examples for the United Kingdom, the Heritage Edition marks 50 years since the Ford Escort started production at the Halewood plant in England.

There's a new generation of the Ford Focus just around the corner, and if past experience is anything to go by we likely won't see an RS version of the auto until well into the product cycle.

After three years of production, it's time to say goodbye to the Ford Focus RS - but it's going out with a bang.

In addition to the Deep Orange exterior colour, the Heritage Edition features grey brake callipers behind black forged alloy wheels and the RS Edition's trademark contrasting black door mirrors and rear spoiler.

Standard equipment for the variant included partial leather Recaro seats, sunroof, privacy glass, cruise control with speed limiter and a heated steering wheel.

The Heritage Edition's price tag is just over £7,000 more expensive than a standard RS, but will likely justify some of that increase with better resale value as a last-of-the-line model.

Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director of Ford of Britain, said: "The RS brand is hugely important to Ford and is recognised across the globe, however it has a special place in the hearts of UK Ford fans". The auto also has a limited slip mechanical diff.

By controlling the torque delivered to each front wheel, the Focus RS Edition's Quaife LSD enables drivers to exploit the power delivered by its 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine in high-performance driving situations.
