GARY VAN DYCK 2017 FOCUS RS MK3
Gary is what is known as a returnee – he’s had a ton of classic Fords in the past; including Mk1/ Mk2 Escorts and an XR3i too. Right now, it’s time to get back into fast Fords and what better way than buying a brand-new Focus RS? But of course, any Ford is simply a blank canvass and you can’t keep it stock, can you? Consequently, the list of mods he’s made so far are pretty impressive.
There’s more planned along with maybe a total colour change – “thing is there’s so many Nitrous Blue cars out there because they look great and it’s such a popular colour, but that does mean it’s difficult to make it stand out – hence the graphics and the wrap on the roof by Essex Wraps,” explains Gary.
He continues: “I’m thinking of wrapping the whole car, maybe in red, but the trouble is I don’t want to make it look like an Edition model. We’ll see what happens...”
There’s been a few engine mods too, and Gary’s gone “as far as you’d want to go with the stock 2.3”. Seems like the next step is to go for a fully forged engine…
Gary’s not been shy with the upgrades for his RS With tuning taken as far as he reliably can, the next step for Gary is have the engine fully forged
...especially as they were mirrored by a row of new Focus RSs too!
