Lot #3009 - Officially unveiled at the 2015 New York auto show, this all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS marks the first time this legendary car has been offered in North America. All proceeds from the auction of this car will be donated to benefit JDRF, "Improving lives. Curing Type 1 diabetes." Taking years of Ford performance and engineering to the next level, the Focus RS makes use of advanced performance features and selectable drive modes - including industry-first drift mode as well as launch control. The Focus RS features a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that sends 350hp and 350 ft/lbs of torque to all four wheels. Unlike any other vehicle that Ford has developed, the RS comes standard with a 6-speed manual, a unique torque-vectoring system and all-wheel drive. The 2016 RS features a set of 19" wrapped in performance Michelin Super Sport Summer Tires, a unique RS front fascia and grille, rear styling which includes a re-designed rear-wing for added down force as well as a unique RS sport exhaust with dual bright tips. Completing the aggressive look of the Focus RS are unique headlights and fog lamps. Other exclusive features include a sport suspension with stiffer spring rates and more efficient bushes and anti-roll bars and two-mode switchable dampers, which offer a firmer setting for track use. Specially tuned electric power-assisted steering, in combination with an optimized front suspension knuckle design and shorter link arms delivers connected and responsive steering with outstanding feel. On the inside, the high-performance character of the Focus RS is reflected in the cockpit, with heavily bolstered, partial-leather Recaro sport seats as the centerpiece, a soft-feel flat-bottomed steering wheel, alloy pedals, unique instrument graphics in the main cluster and performance gauges atop the center console. Additionally, the distinctive blue RS theme is echoed throughout the cabin in the stitching on the seats, steering wheel, floor mats, interior trim and gear shift as well as in the RS logo itself on the seats, steering wheel and door scuff plates. The interior also features an 8" capacitive touch screen with SYNC 3 voice connectivity for audio, navigation, climate control and mobile phones. The Focus RS is available in four striking exterior colors including Focus RS-exclusive Nitrous Blue, Stealth Gray, Shadow Black and Frozen White.
