I'll go if the RS is there. Unfortunately, I don't see it on the list of ford vehicles that will be on display.

For what it's worth, the Charlotte International Auto Show also stated the RS would not be there this past November. I went anyways and there was a Shadow Black RS in the back of the Ford section, out in the open. It was locked but you could get up close to it and look around.

You might be right. I'll be attending anyway and hopefully will get to see one. Here is an email response from a member of the Washington Auto Show Staff
Ford has not sent us the full list of vehicles they are bringing to the 2016 Washington Auto Show. The 2016 Ford Focus RS is not on the list yet but the manufacturers are constantly adding their most popular and innovative models. We are always updating our website with the vehicles which will be on display as the manufacturer provides us with the information. So check back soon and often for the latest.

I agree, you should go. The Ford reps there said it was a last minute decision to include the RS and the email you presented goes right in line with that. I got to sit in and check out a Focus ST with ST3 package to gauge what the RS interior would feel like and it was pretty stellar.

I plan to attend again this year. Last year I went during the weekday when admission was free for Military & Government employees. Took the metro in, there were no crowds and got up close to all the exhibits. What a difference from the typical packed house on Saturday & Sunday.

If someone happens to spot an RS at the DC show can you please post it? I will be in the DC area for work on the 25th. If there is an RS to see I will definitely go.:cool:

Dang it, that massive blizzard seems to have prevented many from making it out to the Auto Show.

They opened the show back up today. Girlfriend is working there so hopefully I can confirm if the RS is there by the end of today.

EDIT: Yup, they got one there.
What color? =o I have drill less than an hour away this weekend, so I just might have to go have a look!

Nitrous blue with forged wheels. Girlfriend sent me a picture, and I didn't ask for the VIN. I don't plan on going down until Sunday, but I might be able to convince her to get a picture of the VIN today.

So I'm at the DC auto show right now... In another post I rated the Focus RS at 7.8/10. After seeing it in person I would like the revise that to 9/10.. Or greater... Looks great. A little muscular even. Love it, and the nitrous blue.
