Had gone to Bade's Last night. Ksm-vtec and me were standing around and talking when we suddenly heard this engine start up.
As we walked up towards the line of parked cars, i couldnt believe my eyes i saw a 2010 FORD FOCUS RS with a temp Plate. SHOCKED!!!! To see a monster FWD on our roads. Electric Blue colour. White Multi spoke rims. On temp REG.
If someone spots this again. PLEASE click better pics.

OT: Also Spotted a Maroon Baleno with Bhp Stickers. Who r u..??

Always has a suprise there. Also Spotted an R8 around the area. But seeing this RS there was a treat.
Its a Bawa owner. I have a feeling its the same guy who owns a M3 too.

But isn't this car available only in LHD?

OMG ! That is an awesome catch. Good job danlalan

One among the cars I really wished was launched in the country. As we hear rumours of Evo X around the corner, jope the RS wont be too far.

Anyone, Better pics please !

White rims ? Those look like the OE hyper silver rims to me. Pics for reference.

@ Scorcher. It must be the RS500 special edition that you are talking about. But that car too is limited to 345 bhp. Only 500 of those made.

Also, those aren't silver, but white rims indeed bro.

That is an awesome catch. Can Ford dealers get one of these into the country for its customers? Brilliant car.

Im suprised Mustang.101 has not quoted anything in this thread till now.

Come on dude!,give us a hint if this vehicle being spotted has any connections with a future launch (non RS even ) or is it probably just a self import by the buyer .

This car would be a brilliant alternative to cars in the 10-15lac bracket .All other cars look like saloons.

All other cars in that bracket look like saloons because they are saloons!
Anyways the new Focus sedan is expected to make it to India sometime in the near future,probably end of this year or beginning of next.No plans for the hatch yet.As for the RS,you can forget it! This is just a private import,a stonking one nonetheless! Perfect bang for your buck.

I didn't mention a word about the bhp figures. Seems you replied for someone else.

Ah, I still feel it is Hyper Silver. Maybe it is time to get my eyes checked.

For all the bhp junkies, check the dyno video for the figures(may not be the factory figures as Dyno record the bhp delivered from the wheels and not the engine)
