I do undertsand your point as the same point was made back when the mk2 focus rs was launched but yet that still happened as I attended the launch party at dunton ford research centre in essex england, I see no reason for it to be simple speculation as the evidence we was shown in person and the options chosen from the salesmans pack and expected delivery date of december 2016 to his home appear nothing but legit

heres a pic of the mk2 frs at ford uk headquarters when the same speculation was rife on the web with people saying they would not release one



also some more info for those of you with the early mk3 frs , Stage 2 for Focus RS MK3 is coming soon, with over 419 BHP and 557 NM.

After months of calibration and testing on road and track, we thought it was about time we put the Stage 2 RS on the Dyno to see what the figures looked like.

Currently running 368 WHP and 564 NM using our in-house Dynapak Hub dyno, and independently tested on MAHA rolling road dyno we saw 419 BHP and 557 NM. We are rolling out BETA software to our International dealers as we speak, full release coming soon.

As of today, my dealer has two sitting on the showroom floor. Both with a $10,000 mark up.

I might if I had to pay sticker, but no - they can keep them. They did try this on a GT500KR a while back, and it was that car sat for two years on the floor until they dropped it back to sticker, and it went then. Two year old but still full sticker - to a collector.

Those cars won't sit for much longer as there's plenty of people paying well over msrp for what is a limited car and pretty unique.

I sell new fords and I can tell you we have sold every one that comes through the door within days if they weren't sold before they arrived. We ask a 7,500 mark up and no one even bats an eye that is a serious buyer. We just got a Stealth Gray one in yesterday that has no deposit on it so lets see how long it lasts.. haven't had one sit here much over a week yet!

I paid no where near that for my ADM although I paid a little over MSRP. You guys are crooks lol.

I am however curious to see how many are left over next year at this time and how much prices will be.

Oh and by the way you may want to check out the recalls before you sell that SG RS lol.

Can't sell that car just yet.

You can look it up. Basically, standards in the US for the latch must be opened with two mechanisms. But the button near the steering wheel to open the hatch opens it and that is only one locking mechanism.
