2010 Ford Focus RS production started

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

The 2010 Ford Focus RS, set for showrooms in April of this year and will be offered to more than 20 European countries including Russia, has just begun coming out of the production lines in Ford's Saarlouis factory in Germany. 

Ford predicts that UK, Germany and Switzerland will be the highest volume outlets of the new Focus.

The car factory in Saarlouis has been the home of the three- and five-door variants of the Focus hatch, wagon and sporty ST versions.

For the RS, however, a special team was assembled to install numerous exterior and interior design details exclusive to the vehicle including new body parts to accommodate broader wheel arches and track, supported by modified, deeper side rocker moldings and bespoke front and rear bumpers. 

Final specs on the vehicle will include 300 hp (223 kW) and 325lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque generated by its Duratec 2.5-liter powerplant.

Acceleration rate is 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.9 seconds with a maximum speed of 264 km/h (164 mph).

This is a comeback for the RS model, motivated by enthusiasts, which initially came out in its first generation model in 2002 has since been on the sidelines. Ford is quite pleased to have the RS model back in their portfolio.
