Ford Performance wants enthusiasts from both sides of the Atlantic and after announcing the North American Limited Edition of the Focus RS, they went and published details about the new option pack for the European version of the same car
No surprises here, because Ford offers European customers the same offer in the form of the new option package, the highlight of which is the addition of a Quaife mechanical limit-slip differential for the front axle.
Other features included in the new option package are the signature Nitrous Blue paintjob, paired with a matte black roof, mirror caps and rear spoiler, a set of 19 “glossy black forged alloys, front Recaro shawl seats in a dressed dyed nitrous Blue / Black upholstery and the Brembo four-piston brake calipers finished in RS Blue.
“For the hardcore driving enthusiast, the additional mechanical grip of the Quaife LSD will make it even easier to move the speed through a corner on the track and maximize the acceleration on the way out.” Leo Roeks, Ford’s performance director Europe said. “The Focus RS Option Pack brings our philosophy to a new level for an everyday road car.”
The turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine remains unchanged and offers 345 hp (350 hp) and a 0-62 mph (0-100km / h) in 4.7 seconds.
