    New Ford Focus RS: 1500 UK orders already — without a single RS test drive

    The new Ford Focus RS — Ford’s new 345bhp, 4WD super hot hatch — has garnered 1,500 orders from UK buyers before a single test drive has taken place.

    I bet you we (North America) are not far behind and we have to wait even longer before release.

    With the highest premium being asked right now at 20k above MSRP (not including an electronic auction to the highest bidder) when this car really takes off in popularity like the early STI's I cant imagine the premium some people will be willing to pay. Now if only we can get a fast & furiousesque movie to come out around the time we all take delivery lol I was looking for devil horns but we don't have that emoji loaded.

    The headlines about the UK purchasing 1500 units already kinda makes the mention of 2000 for all of the US sound ridiculous.

    They didn't say 1500 orders full filled... also, Ford stated orders they can't fill with a 2016 they plan to try filling with a 2017.

    1500 orders is 1500 orders. What I was trying to portray is I'm amazed that 2000 units has been mentioned for the US. The US market is way bigger than the UK market.

    I'm just speculating that some of those 1500 order in UK may not be filled with a 2016MY RS. Some may get pushed back to the 2017MY.
