Focus RS MK1
A stunning Ford Focus RS MK1. Only 4 owners from new and 83489 miles, this fantastic RS comes complete with a very comprehensive service history.
The Focus RS needs little introduction and this lovely, un-abused example has been loved and cared for throughout its life. With the MK1 being tipped as the next "big thing" this stunning example represents a fantastic investment opportunity, whilst still being able to be used and enjoyed!
Finished in the one and only available colour, the Imperial Blue paintwork has a lovely, consistent deep gloss finish throughout. Still retaining all of its factory fitted panels, this example has clearly never suffered the fate that many of these cars did. All the panel gaps are linear straight and the car sits exactly as it should. Only a couple of small stone chips and a very faint, small scratch to the centre rear bumper are visible upon close inspection. The car really does present very well and is stunning. All the door shuts, boot shut, boot floor and under bonnet are exceptionally clean.
The correct Black/Blue, half leather Sparco race seats are in excellent condition and showing only a very, very slight amount of wear, however they really are in nice condition. The dashboard, door cards, carpet and headlining are again, all excellent. The rear seats look like they have had very little or no use at all. The steering wheel is in good condition, however, it is showing some signs of wear. The car is complete with the original RS carpet mats and also an additional set of Ford carpet mats. Overall, the interior of this car really is a special place to be.
Wheels & Tyres:
The original 18" OZ Racing alloy wheels are in very good condition and look superb. There are only a couple of very minor marks on a couple of the wheels, but nothing unsightly. The car has just had 2 brand new Goodyear Eagle tyres on the front and the rear Goodyear Eagle tyres at the rear still have at least 6mm of tread remaining.
Engine, Suspension & Transmission:
This stunning car has amazingly managed to avoid the many performance upgrades that are available. Apart from an upgraded air-filter and the desire able upgrade of the boost hoses, this car is as it left the factory...it still runs an original exhaust. The suspension and gearbox are again, standard factory spec. The cam belt was changed around 6000 miles ago and was also serviced a couple of weeks ago and this included new HT leads and coil pack. The car drives fantastic and pulls very strong throughout the rev range and without drama. There are no knocks, squeaks or rattles at all.
First registered on the 30th September 2003, the car was owned by a Doctor from new and his ownership was until the 29th October 2011. Since then, a further 3 enthusiast owners have had the pleasure of using and maintaining this fantastic car. The car benefits from a full and comprehensive service history and the vast majority has been carried out by official Ford dealers. Every previous MOT is present along with a host of bills and receipts to verify the very comprehensive upkeep. The original leather RS wallet is present and all handbooks are present, including the RS supplement guide. The current MOT is until the 17th February 2017. The current V% is also present along with 2 keys and 1 fob. The car is HPI clear.
