2010 FORD FOCUS RS – Front View
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 Saarlouis plant already builds the three and five-door versions of the Focus hatchback, wagon and sporty ST models, and for the new RS a special team was set-up to specifically install a number of unique exterior and interior design details. These include new body parts to incorporate wider wheel arches and a wider track, complemented by revised, deeper side rocker mouldings and custom front and rear bumpers.

“We are excited that a new RS-badged Ford performance model is back in our portfolio and that production at Saarlouis is starting on schedule,” said John Fleming, Ford of Europe Chairman and CEO. “We’ve had a huge amount of interest in this model from the loyal army of Ford RS enthusiasts as well as potential customers who have never owned an RS before. I am confident that they will fall for it the moment they get behind the wheel.”
