Ford Focus RS500 Assembly Video

It takes a while to build one of the world’s hottest hatches, and after the limited number of 500 units have sold out.

While the car may start life as nearly identical to the standard Focus RS hatchback, the video shows the factory modification that starts with a unique hood and wraps up with a special larger intercooler, bodywork, spoiler and black wheels – all completed by hand.

The FWD 350 horsepower, turbocharged 2.5-liter 5 cylinder engine is finished off by the team from 3M as they wrap the car in matte black vinyl.

Ford Focus RS500 Spotted at the Nurburgring

At last weekends Nurburgring 24h race, Ford showed off their number 6 production of the Limited Focus RS500.

Ford could not resist taking the car for a few laps of the infamous nordschleife before the first orders arriving in late june.

It is getting quite normal to see the industry test pool sneaking on to the Tourist Laps of the North-Loop.

It makes me wonder out of the 500 production run how many are going to be press vehicles.
