another point why not give the option for the wheels and color scheme that were on the show car as an option. this is what was shown and people fell in love with?
As far as the color goes, that's a Ford Performance show car color only and it's said to be very expensive.

I have a grand down at my dealer in Canada....I get my choice of the first one out of the three they get. Ford dealers get only one, SVT dealers get three! Hope one of them is blue!

So you won't be able to place an order?
Would suck to pay that much money and not get what you want.
If they ended up getting the three colors you don't want it would be unfortunate.
That being said I can't stand that Nitrous(SP) blue.

Holy crap, September 30 the RS will start hitting the show room floors. That might be Europe first or the US. I can't tell I'm to excited to think straight.

Actual physical car in showrooms? This is nowhere else on the net after a search so hard to believe right at this moment.

Cars aren't due until some time in spring 2016 in the USA. I doubt we'll see them before February next year. Likely the first cars built this year will go to Europe.

The only thing coming on September 30th officially is the start of the rebirth of an Icon Series:

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.

the gt350 has what looks like the concept rs recaro seats. those seats should be in the production rs. not the same seats that are in the st.

the contour 18'rims look very similar to the concept rs wheels.

as for the blue paint cmon, i heard to expensive to make. ridiculous. make an affordable blue then. stays with the theme of rs blue of past.

rear fog light, alot of euro cars here in the states have them so why not add it in.

the concept is everything the rs should be. dont water it down.
