All production - 500 units - the new 'pump' the Ford was sold in less than 12 hours, 48 hours ahead of schedule, advances the British publication Autocar.

Portugal will receive only ten copies, with price of around 55,000 euros, the Focus RS500, which will be available from July and only in matte black, and retrieves a designation that caused a sensation in the eighties, with the Sierra Cosworth RS500.
The five-cylinder 2.5 turbo was modified by Ford Team RS and Revolve Technologies, doing a power increase to 350 horsepower (+45 hp) and torque up to 460 Nm (10 Nm).
The performances announced are impressive for a front wheel drive car: 263 km / h top speed and 5.6 seconds to accomplish the 0 to 100 km / h.
