Ford Focus RS noobie question

Alright so I never knew about this car until a few days ago where I saw it on a picture and I loved it.

I live in Colombia, and bringing one over here is too expensive since they charge you 70%... But I also have a place in the US... And I'm thinking of buying one in Europe and bringing it over to the US..

My question is, I only see the Focus RS 2009 on most sites, and somewhere on these forums there's a topic of a "2010 Ford Focus RS spotted", is the 2010 RS out already? How much is it, or any site I can find information?

Thank you!

I'm thinking you'll spend just as much money getting it into the US. Unless you're saying transit the thing through the US instead of going direct to Colombia?

Registering the thing in the US would be as fun as taking a belt sander to your (pick a body part). Don't know enough about Colombian laws and regulations to say how registering and getting it on the road there would be. All I know is that the US is so heavily regulated and everything it takes so much effort and there's so much red tape in the way of getting it imported and registered and insured.

They either run around 25,000 gbp or euro, I forget which...

Google says gbp.

Well to get it to Colombia they charge you 70% of the cost to nationalize it, and another %'s for some other stuff, which means you'd end up paying double of what the car costs to bring it in...

That's why a car that costs 130k$ US would sell for 500-600 million pesos here, which is pretty much 4x the price...

Well that would be an option as well but I would too just get it into the US and have it there at my place instead of Colombia, but my question is... Is the 2010 Focus RS out? I remember the topic of someone posting pictures of a FOcus RS 2010 spotted in Royal Oak or something, but I can't find anything about the 2010... Did he make a mistake or?

It's not coming to the US. That was a dealer car (one of the higher ups at Ford gets to import and license one as a personal vehicle and for testing/marketing purposes).

They are not and will not be for sale here until POSSIBLY the next gen RS. Current gen will not be sold here.

I do not believe the 2010's are on sale yet, I too have only seen 2009's listed.
i checked autotrader.uk and they have 2009's like this one listed

i also checked autobild.de and they too only have the 2009 rs on sale.

seems most people were just telling you that you cant buy one for the US and not answering your question to if the 2010's were on sale yet. I hope this helps

Yes, that's what I wanted to know, I was confused since I saw the whole topic saying "2010 Focus RS" thing and I was like "What? 2010 is out already?"

Thank you! Must have been a 2009 and the topic title was mistaken maybe
