If you’ve been wondering about whether or not to buy a limited edition Ford Focus RS500 you don’t need to wonder any more. Despite the lack of an official price all of the RS500s are as good as sold, and if Autocar is correct they were all snapped up within twelve hours of the big reveal.
Ford had been pushed into revealing the RS500 a couple of days early, after the website had been hacked and images were released onto the Interwebs. At this point even dealers didn’t know of its existence but as soon as word got out the enquiries began pouring in.
Ford have now got to work their way through the letters of intent and telephone enquiries to work out how many of the 101 cars each dealer will get. If you are one of those quick thinking people who got to their dealer quickly then good for you, but it sounds like its going to be a bit of a lottery.
