Motor sport enthusiasts with a passion for driving have cause for excitement at this year's British International Motor Show with the announcement of the Ford Focus RS. The Ford Focus RS will go on sale in the Spring of 2001, and is shown at Birmingham in pre-production form. This new model marks the return of the Ford Rallye Sport brand - an intrinsic part of Ford's rich heritage and famous for delivering a range of thoroughbred road cars and victorious race and rally cars. But the Ford Focus RS is simply the first of a range of high performance Focus models that are under development. A Ford Focus ST model will follow late next year.
