Well, obviously the Focus RS is a niche market. Proven by those of us who are buying cars 'sight unseen'; because they are something special ... an RS!

Many of us must be previous RS fans ... so, for those in AUS, show us your other RS.

The Escorts, Capris, Sierras or Focus'.



I'm happy to start, here's my Sierra RS Cosworth, now thirty years exactly the senior of my Focus to come (that's kinda cool I reckon) ...

Beautiful Sierra. I remember watching the Shell Sierras in the ATCC back when I was a kid. Probably why I want a Focus RS so badly - a modern day version in some ways.

Thanks boys.

'Rallye' ... top avatar :p, probably my favourite RS.

I was completely smitten by "rs200.org" for a while reading about each individual cars build/spec/history and current homeland. V cool stuff (for those of us with issues :rolleyes:).

The first time I saw a Sierra was D Johnson fanging his Shell Sierra up Eastern Beach at the early Geelong Sprints.

That was me ... sold.

Thanks rudeboy, yep definitely the RS family patriarch. But I must refrain from here - please don't get me started on the demise of Group B.......:p

Have you enjoyed the MK2 Nauli?

Would you keep it if you could, or time for something 'different'?

I rate the MkII as the best car I have ever owned....and I have had many modified WRX's and STI's in the past. It's just a fun car to drive.........If I could afford to, I would keep it, but the new RS is not so far away so the MkII is up for sale.

A pic I stole from the web. Some time ago in the auto trader a 99 RS Cosworth was for sale like the pic here. Wish i could have jumped on it for the $20,000 price.

Does my ST count? Lol

Ah, I know it doesn't count, it's not an RS, I love my ST and it's the reason I know that I'll love the RS even more. The RS is going to be a very special car, and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
