    Want the most exclusive Focus RS ever made? You've four days left to secure one of only three 400hp RS50s

    (Here we go again with another limited offering FoRS)

    Few people know about the Focus RS50 EVOs that were commissioned by Ford and produced by Mountune to celebrate 50 years of Rallye Sport because, well, only three were ever made - and none went on sale. That is until now, as TrustFord is taking bids on two cars until January 31st, with each advertised by the dealer for a minimum of £85,000.

    No, that's not a typo; the reserve figure for each of these four-cylinder Focuses is about the same price as a new Carrera T. Bonkers. But the two cars do, at least, come with the most potent officially sanctioned setup ever used in a Mk3. Mountune has uprated their 2.3-litre EcoBoost powertrains with its M400 package, which, as the name suggests, gives the RS50 400hp, making it 50hp more powerful than the regular model.

    To achieve that, the RS50's induction system, turbo and intercooler were upgraded, along with its internals including forged pistons and new steel rods. The more powerful engine breathes through Mountune's three-inch exhaust system, complete with a freer flowing 200-cell catalytic converter, while the six-speed gearbox it's mated to sports a Mountune short shift arm to reduce lever throw by 20 per cent. Racey.

    Mountune also fitted each RS50 with DCC adjustable coilovers, braided brake lines and lightweight calipers, as well as stiffer anti-roll bars to boost handling and agility. There's a carbon fibre rear wing and RS50 decals on each car, too, which signify its role as the most extreme iteration of Focus RS.

    Are they really worth a minimum of £85k, though? Most definitely not, if you do your measuring in material value only. If you take into account the rareness of these cars, added to their positioning as the ultimate version of the Mk3 super-hatch, then maybe, just maybe, things make more sense. There are delivery miles Heritage Editions - of which 50 were sold in Britain - on the classifieds for over sixty grand, after all. Thankfully for the rest of us, there's no shortage of healthy-looking used RSs for less than half that.

    I don't like the looks of this racer. I bet I've wrecked on more tracks than he's driven.

    No you don't. They suck because whenever you just want to clean off your windshield those things will spray, and then you get crap all over the front of your car. They aren't good. It's just a Euro requirement to have them.

    We have them on the Australian version as well. Yet to see them work when washing the windshield. Its either random or detects when they are dirty... dunno

    Would be interesting to know which sway bars Mountune selected for this build since they do not mfg. their own.

    They only spray if your headlights are on...
