Cool My FOCUS RS Conversion!

Got my baby back, and she's awsome!

She is now officaly the ONLY black Focus RS, and the only one running on Nitrous in the WORLD!!!

This is beyond unique!

Some of these are old pics, but some are there to give u an idea. I'll clean it up and finish it off a bit 1st b4 posting better pics!

The conversion includes everything from the front end of the RS, the dash clock, suspension and all round complete Brembo brake setup. A 212bhp stock RS engine, but its has quite a few extra's, so wait and see for the update on this thread for complete spec...

Will post more soon when I'm happy!





















and the comemorative plaque...



which reads...

Quote:
With 4501 Focus RS models built, only 2147 were actually sold in the United Kingdom. Most were sold to careful owners and collectors who take pleasure in maintaining the status and originality of this rare edition of the Ford RS line.

The Focus RS was available in one colour only, Ford Racing Blue. But before it went into production, Panther Black and Diamond White versions were used in its development. These cars known as “test mules”, were tested by world renowned racing drivers Francois Delecourt and Colin McRae.

The only Panther Black issued RS was a genuine scratch built development car, completely different to the ST170 and basic Focus structures. It was built with near all the parts the Focus RS consists of today.

Its registration was X926 YOO, which was either sold for a substantial sum to a private collector, or like the fate of the others was destroyed once the developing tests were completed.

My Focus

This is NOT a genuine Focus RS, however all key parts were harvested out of a damaged RS in order to convert a basic Focus into a unique, one of a kind Focus RS.
Out of 4501 made, this is the only road going RS powered Focus in the country, in Panther Black…

@ W Phoenix RC

Yup, been on the dyno and had a nice little number out of it...but that you'll have to wait for, along with all the new pics! LOL

@ Focuzx3

Yup, not many made, which made it VEEEEEERY hard to find a donor car to get all the parts off. Its a proper beast!

Watch this thread for more updates!
