So when the RS does come to the US. Will it be more american or Euro. Those will RS conversions won't be as unique right? Or still will?

And how much will the dang thing cost. I feel as if a fully loaded one would be pushing 40k. Which puts it in mustang territory

Yes they are going to be pricey but it will be a very limited car. A fully loaded ST is just over 30k so I'd expect the RS to be between 35 & 40k. It may be close to a Mustang in price but it is a completely different type of car and market. At this point it is the only Ford I would think of replacing my SVT with but it better come with only 2 doors!

Yeah I was going to say 34k to 40k. I wonder how limited. Have to preregister for it I'm guessing. 4 door would look bad.

I hope I'm lined up when it comes out. I don't care how many doors it has. I love my focus, one with ~350 horses and awd is just :heavy breathing: lol

If it's truly limited to a run of a couple thousand cars then you can tack on a "market adjustment" to that price so to get an RS new you might be talking over $45k.

I don't think it will be that limited. Does anybody know how many of the last RS were made?
