KEITH FLYNN 2009 FO­CUS RS

Fast Ford - - Club Meet -

When your liv­ing is made by de­tail­ing cars, you’d ex­pect Keith Flynn to have the shini­est car out there! In to­tal con­tra­dic­tion, then, his Fo­cus is wrapped in a satin fin­ish, which means he can con­cen­trate on mak­ing other peo­ple’s cars as awe­some as he does. But, there’s quite a few hid­den touches if you look closer. Note the graph­ics in the side of the bon­net, re­flect­ing ex­actly what Keith does…

And there’s a prob­lem with de­tail­ing cars: “You see that many, you want them all,” Keith laughs. Which is why he’s gone through some­thing like 230 cars in his own­er­ship! “I get bored re­ally eas­ily, and I want the car I’m work­ing on at the time.” Al­though, he’s owned this RS for 18-months now; which is a long time for Keith.

This was ac­tu­ally one of the first Fo­cus’ in the coun­try, it’s build num­ber 115 and now has a host of mod­i­fi­ca­tions done to it. There’s more to come yet, too. “The Eibachs have made a mas­sive dif­fer­ence, it han­dles bet­ter and feels much tighter in cor­ners. But the next step is to poly­bush it. Plus fit some stereo up­grades, which I re­ally miss. My last car had two big 12in subs in the boot, so that’s next!”

QUICK SPEC Jam­sport 400bhp con­ver­sion, 650 in­jec­tors, Sitech Rac­ing plenum, high-pres­sure fuel pump, Group-A air fil­ter, Airtec in­ter­cooler, Eibach springs, up­rated dampers, 19x9in Rota Grids with Yoko­hama 235/35 tyres
