Ford's Focus RS hot hatch will soon be available as a limited edition model in Australia, with the Blue Oval having secured 500 examples for local customers.
Set to arrive in November, the Focus RS Limited Edition gives the model new paws as fresh rivals from Honda and Volkswagen land down under.
Pricing starts from $56,990 before on-road costs, which is $6000 more than the standard Focus RS.
For the extra money, Ford has packed in more performance-focused features including a new Quaife limited-slip front differential for greater traction, 19-inch alloy wheels that wear Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and blue trimmed leather Recaro shell seats.
On top of the performance focused features Ford has also added a rear spoiler, black mirror caps and roof, blue 'Nitrous' prestige paint and privacy glass, while safety is boosted by the addition of autonomous emergency braking.
Power still comes from the impressive 2.3 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol EcoBoost engine, tuned to produce 257kW and 440Nm mated to a six-speed manual transmission with power delivered to all four wheels.
