Official known information for the Focus RS
We should have a repository for official information, I know I've missed some things so please post them below with links if necessary and I'll add the info to this post with edits
European price list
35,730 base price
$875 - destination
$2785 - RS2 package
$895 - power moonroof
$1395 - wheel package 1
$1990 - wheel package 2
$695 - Nitrous blue color option
2.3L eco boost turbo motor
4wd/6 speed transmission (manual only)
23.2 pounds of boost (But the overboost function on the Focus RS lasts 20 seconds, and if you shift or lift off the throttle and then reapply it, the timer resets again for another 20 seconds, says Ford spokesman Paul Seredynski. Thus, the overboost function is practically permanent, allowing for the Society of Automotive Engineers to officially rate the Focus RS’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine at 350 hp and 350 pound-feet of torque.)
4" thick intercooler
~3425 pounds (speculated) * (official European weight is 1529kg)
Colors: Nitrous Blue, Stealth Grey, Frozen White, Shadow Black
0-62 in 4.7 seconds (real world will probably be 4.5 0 to 60)
1/4 mile - Online calculators say anything from 12.4/110mph to 13.1/110mph, being that this car is awd, I would bet it will be closer to the 12.80 rather than the 13.10
Top speed - 165mph
For the U.S. market, the 2016 Focus RS delivers a total of 350 horsepower at 6,000 rpm on way to 6,800-rpm redline and 350 pound-feet of torque at 3,200 rpm.
7.7l/100km - 33mpg US or 40mpg UK
10.0l/100km - 23.5mpg US or 28mpg UK
6.3l/100km - 37mpg US or 45 mpg UK
13.9 gallon gas tank
Speculated MPG figures to date 21/29/23
Forged wheels save 1 ½ lbs per wheel, first mention was 2.2 lbs per wheel.
5x108 +50mm offset 19x8
The base Recaro seats on the U.S. Focus RS seats are stolen from the U.S. Focus ST with the ST2 package,
NO auto-dimming rear-view mirror
NO cooled seats, optional heated
The key to comfort for U.S. Focus RS buyers will surely be paying the extra $2,785 for the RS2 package, which adds power leather/Dinamica (similar to Alcantara) Recaro seats with adjustable lumbar support. These seats are shared with the U.S. Focus ST’s ST3 package, but they use different covers.
USA gets the much-improved new Sync 3 system on the Focus RS. Ford also says that Sync 3 will eventually support both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Navigation is available on Sync 3 if you spec the RS2 package. U.S. cars also feature a standard 10-speaker Sony audio system. That system is optional in Europe, where a nine-speaker system is their base radio setup
we get fixed bi-xenon headlights without washers. HID automatic headlamps with LED signature lighting and cornering functionality
Tenneco dual-mode suspension -- Normal or Sport -- independently from the currently selected drive mode
RS is claimed to be capable of delivering more than 1.0 g of lateral acceleration.
Called “stall recovery,” it uses start-stop engine technology–a fuel-saving feature that automatically shuts off the engine during temporary stops–to automatically restart the engine if the driver accidentally stalls it. The interesting new technological twist is that Ford’s stall-recovery feature automatically engages the clutch pedal in order to start the car back up after it has stalled.

Using this sheet we can put together some information.
Fuel tank capacity is 12.4, same as all other trims of Focus.
Cargo volume behind 2nd row is significantly smaller. 19.9 CU. FT. compared to 23.8 CU. FT. in the ST. Probably due to a raised floor to fit the RDU.
Interesting note, no spare tire. Only a "Tire Mobility Kit." Again probably due to the raised trunk floor. That info can be found here. 2016 Ford Focus RS | The 2016 Ford Focus RS | Ford.com

Forged wheels are $1395 and forged wheels + Cup2's are $1990
Don't be afraid to look back, just never slow down.2016 RS / Stealth Gray / RS2 / Forged Wheels / MoonroofIG: Hidden Content
Nitrous Blue is a $695 option.
Power is 345bhp – that’s 17bhp less than the 2.5-litre five-cylinder delivers in the RS3 but there could be the potential to up power even further in future with a limited-run model.
Also stating gas mileage can be as high as 35mpg.
This car will weigh alot more than 3200lbs plus 20kg. lol
That weight is official or no?
Is that also European weight?
If so it will probably be higher than that here in the US

Also noted that 91 is the minimum octane fuel for the RS. No 87 in this machine.

Not surprised at all by this. My 230hp 19K srt-4 required premium.

However, with Ford’s latest Dynamic Torque Vectoring system, RevoKnuckle is now redundant.
Do we have specs on if the forged wheels are lighter?
