£9500 Focus RS..... Replica

Oh dear.....

We all know that if you see a 3 door sierra cossie, its most likely a replica, hell even the sapphires are getting replicated on an industrial scale, however these cars are old and desirable, a good 3 door going well into £60,000+. So I naively thought that the focus RS would be safe for years to come, however oh how so naïve I was.

For the princely sum of £9,500 you could have a 1.0l Ecoboost Focus RS. It has done 76,000 miles and a full service history. A similar unmodified 1.0l ecoboost will set you back £6,500 while a real focus RS can be had from £24,000. If you want a real performance ford for this money, you can get the same age of ST.

  • I'd rather buy an ST version and rebuild it into the RS¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    • I’d imagine that would be more expensive then just buying an RS, you would need to make a new floor for a propshaft and rear axle, then buy an RS drivetrain.

  • Replicas are fine if you build em yourself, but like, to replicate a focus? With a 1.0? Just spend $20 on some badges on eBay and slap em on. You'll get the same performance out of em. At least with Shelby Cobra replicars they still have the V8

  • Reps of Focus RS/ST are a bit naff, and all they do is increase the likelihood of your car being nicked. And you’re probably going to pay less insurance for an unmodified RS/ST as it’s not been modified.
