Woweee! That looks a serious bit of kit! I love the matt black paint. I don't blame you for wanting to bn the fiesta for that :)

Is it any faster than the stock one?

In recognition of the extreme performance potential of the Focus RS500, the limited edition model has been subjected to a series of concentrated durability tests which have focused on the car’s track capabilities.

The development programme included a dedicated endurance test at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany, where Ford TeamRS engineers were joined by three Ford-employed racing drivers working in shifts to complete 10,000km of non-stop driving, equivalent to competing in ten consecutive Nürburgring 24-hour races without a break.

“We wanted to be sure that serious enthusiasts could drive the Focus RS500 to the limit on track, without any concerns about the car’s stamina,” said Matthias Tonn, Focus RS500 Chief Programme Engineer. “This meant going beyond our standard test routines, and pushing the car to the edge of its performance envelope. After 500 non-stop laps of the Nürburgring, we are very confident of its durability and delighted at the way it performed, with an 8-minute lap time within reach”.

i dont see the point behind it anymore behind that chaved up look... if you want a car too bash about on a track then drive off in you look M classes and RS Audi's stuff dont you... will depend on the price if it can undercut them 2 it be worthwhile

Im not 100% sure about it tbh. Its a cool car, dont get me wrong, but its too expensive and i think i would feel slightly embarassed driving about in it once the novelty wears off. Personally i prefer the standard RS which has more than adequete performance as it is.
