Ford’s fo­cus on clas­sic model

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

Ford has moth­balled the first UK-reg­is­tered Fo­cus RS500 for its her­itage dis­plays at shows and deal­er­ships.

Only an­other 100 were avail­able for the UK.

Ford’s cor­po­rate af­fairs man­ager, Brian Ben­nett, says the RS500 is an ob­vi­ous fu­ture clas­sic. Its brethren in the Da­gen­ham-based col­lec­tion in­clude the Es­cort that won the 1970 London to Mex­ico rally, plus the car that gave Ford supremacy in Bri­tain – the Cortina.
