In order to maintain fidelity to top-class engineering, the 2016 Ford Focus RS is being built solely in Germany. And it?s the reason why a lot of people are missing out on the hot hatch, even though it is well within their budgets.
Therefore it shouldn?t come as a surprise to US consumers that if they?re a little late, they would surely miss out on the 350hp pocket rocket at least until its next model year.
Although it was only just released several weeks back, besides the fact that dealerships have been reported to sometimes mark up its price from $36,000 up to $50,000, Ford has officially run out of stock for the Focus RS stateside.
Because of that, around 220 buyers would have to wait longer and ?settle? for the 2017 model of the five-door sizzler instead. And of course Blue Oval has anticipated this severe shortage ? next year?s batch would commence production as soon as this coming October.
It?s not difficult to see why anyone would chase after the Ford Focus RS, no matter how much they would have to pay. It is capable of going from 0 to 60mph in 4.7 seconds, touching a top speed of 165mph. Furthermore, by merely selecting a Drift Mode driver setting it becomes obscenely easy to drift the hatch.
