    948 Miles


Chassis #174/500, 948 miles from new, one owner from new. Surely one of, if not the best RS500 out there.


The Ford Focus RS500 made its global debut at the Leipzig Motor Show on 9th April 2010 and marked the final swansong for production of the remarkable, second generation Focus RS. The new and more powerful, limited edition Focus RS500 model was launched as the ultimate performance Ford to provide the definitive driving experience for serious performance car enthusiasts. The new model was given the RS500 designation to highlight its strictly limited production run of 500 individually-numbered vehicles and featured a muscular 345bhp, 2.5-litre, five-cylinder engine, which generated 15% more power than the standard Focus RS and delivered truly exhilarating performance.

In the raw, the RS looked a bit of a 'beastie' with its gaping grille, 19-inch wheels, flared arches, deep diffuser and a wing that would embarrass a Porsche Turbo which left you in no doubt about its intentions.  However, the limited edition RS500 was even more dramatic, sporting a unique matt black 'foil' paint finish with matching alloy wheels and delivering a powerful visual impact unmatched by any other production Ford. The last of these remarkable vehicles left Ford's Assembly Plant in Germany during September 2010.

Offered here is number 174 of the 500 built and was first registered in the UK on 6th August 2010. It's a UK-supplied, right-hand drive car that had covered a surely unrepeatable 948 miles at the time of cataloguing. A one owner car from new, the V5 showing zero former keepers, our vendor has it as part of his exceptional modern classic Fast Ford collection. Despite the exceptionally small mileage, it has three service stamps at 860 miles, 938 miles and 946 miles by Ford Specialists and main dealer. The history file is as comprehensive as it can be for a car that’s moved so little, supplied with a UK V5C with two sets of keys and all the associated book packs. The last visit to the Ford specialist for servicing was in September 2020. The incredibly low mileage is matched by the superb condition and represents a fabulous opportunity in the modern performance Ford market.

An RS500 is a rare car at the best of times, seldom seen but always appreciated. However, to find an example that has covered less than 1,000 miles and is virtually ‘out of the box’ is a brilliant opportunity for any modern classic collector, whether a ‘Blue Oval’ enthusiast or not, and not to be missed.
