The car is fitted with H&R suspension and complemented by 8,5×20 inches wheels with 255/35ZR20 tires on the front axle, and 10×20 inches with 285/30ZR20 tires on the back. They are also finished in black with orange lips.

This kind of vulgar tuning does not suit the Mustang very well. But if you dig it, it’ll cost you 12.150,00 euro.

Even though this version of Ford Focus has been replaced with the 2012 model those who want the hotted-up RS model have to wait another year or so to get it.

Or, they can get an old RS, which is still a pretty good car, and have it tuned to make it even more interesting. Check out this one by MR Car Design as a good sample.

Anderson Germany Ford Focus RS

Anderson Germany always picks the best cars of each class for their upgrade and tuning programs. So when it came to hot hatchbacks, they went to the king of the hill, the Ford Focus RS.

Reminiscent to the Focus RS500, this Focus RS gets a matte black paint job with the same massive kit as the RS500. It looks menacing in this color specially with the black wheels garnished with red brake calipers and rim’s outer lip.

The best part of this car is the engine which is uprated from 305 to 420 hp. That much power in a front wheel drive car is a recipe for chaos, but the car features a limited slip differential to make sure it won’t mess things up.

The interior is quite interesting too, with lots of leather and Alcantara and diamond-cut red stitching.
