RIP. Production of Ford Performance's #FocusRS hot hatch will officially cease on April 6th, 2018.
Ford Motor Company however is planning to roll-out one final hurrah for their infamous hot hatch, with a UK-only special edition model limited to just 50 units.
Dubbed the Heritage Edition to commemorate 50 years of the Ford Escort, the car the Focus replaced, comes with a front mechanical Quaife Engineering limited-slip differential (LSD), and some extra poke courtesy of a FPM375 Mountune engine upgrade that sees power increase from 257kw/470nm to 275kw/510nm - thanks to a high-flow induction kit, uprated turbo re-circulating valve and calibration.
But apart for some minor trim finishes, the biggest change is its blazing orange paintwork - similar to that as seen on the Focus ST.
Its UK price? ZAR 647 000, which is up from the regular Focus RS at ZAR 540 000.
