Ford will be keep­ing WRC in sharp fo­cus

Bray People - - Motoring Extra -

FORD is mark­ing the re­turn of the World Rally Cham­pi­onship to Ire­land in Jan­uary with a spe­cial lim­ited ‘WRC edi­tion’ of the Fo­cus road car.

The Fo­cus Zetec WRC stands out at first glance for its taste­ful yet strik­ing colour coded body kit, com­plete with bold 17-inch al­loys. In­side, the Tic­Toc red trim ex­tends the sport­ing theme and is com­ple­mented by alu­minium ped­als and hand­brake lever.

Avail­able in 3-door bodystyle, the Fo­cus WRC comes in a choice of three colours and two smooth pow­er­trains, the re­fined 1.8 TDCi 115PS diesel and the pow­er­ful yet fuel-ef­fi­cient 1.6 Ti-VCT with Vari­able Camshaft Tim­ing.

Stan­dard fea­tures in­clude ESP, air con­di­tion­ing, 6 airbags, power win­dows and mir­rors, 6-speaker ra­dio CD, front fogs and sports sus­pen­sion.

‘The beauty of this car is that be­neath the sport­ing ex­te­rior you have one of the most re­li­able, spa­cious and great-to-drive cars on the mar­ket: an all-rounder that has proven a true leg­end on Ir­ish roads,’ said Ed­die Mur­phy, Chair­man and Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Ford Ire­land.

The Fo­cus Zetec WRC is avail­able from next month, from ¤23,780 excl. de­liv­ery and re­lated charges.
