Ford has said the Recaro RS CS Shell seats are for Europe and Asia only.

The wheels on the show car in the USA are the Forged lightweight alloy wheels, the base multi-spoke wheels as shown on the reveal car.

The wheels are only as wide as the ST wheels (8") afaik so it doesn't stick out very far if at all.

Rear Fog light is not an FMVSS requirement, rather an ECE one so it will not be available due to being unnecessary.

Nitrous blue is the RS exclusive color.

Liquid Blue is not available on any Ford, and is the special show car paint used for the reveal of the Ford Performance range only.
I bet so many hearts are broken after reading this comment, because mine certainly is after reading about the seats.
