KGF Classic Cars have a striking example with very low mileage 2003 Mk1 Ford Focus RS finished in the iconic, Imperial Blue Metallic (Code Q2). The example in question is the 9th lowest mileage car known to the Mk1 Focus RS Register club with just 3,994 miles on the clock from new. Presented very nicely through with a comprehensive history file, this is an opportunity too valuable to miss.
Interior & Exterior
Starting with the exterior, the Mk1 Ford Focus RS has been finished in its iconic Imperial Blue Metallic which was the only available colour from factory. Despite rolling off the production floor back in 2003, the Focus RS has a minuscule mark to the rear bumper and has a couple of tiny chips to the inner wheels arches. Having only covered very little mileage in its lifetime, the underside is spotless, and the indoor storage and displays factory markings and part component labels are still visible.
When you enter the car, you will be greeted with the body-hugging Sparco road-race seats finished in Racing Black and Blue Leather with Black Alcantara (Code AR). Again, going back to the mileage, this example has only covered 3,994 miles so you can imagine how immaculate the seats are. The steering wheels blue leather is still vibrant and the RS carpet mats are fitted and in top-notch condition.
Engine, Transmission & Wheels
The engine bay still has the factory plates, stickers, labels and wing stamps visible. Within the engine bay is the Ford 2.0 Duratec R.S. four-cylinder 16v unit which achieves 212bhp at 5500rpm. To give the driver the ultimate rally road car experience, the Ford MTX-75 gearbox has been fitted with a heavy-duty A.P. racing clutch. Lastly, the lightweight 8 x 18in O.Z. Racing rims have never been refurbished and remain in top condition throughout.
Eclectic Auctions Verdict
With the number of miles on the clock and the rarity of the Mk1 Ford Focus RS, it’ll most likely end up in a private collection for many more years to come. The value of these is always on the rise, especially those with a low number of miles on the clock. We at Eclectic Auctions recommend a viewing of this low-mileage Mk1 Ford Focus RS; this would be a vehicle we’d love to own one day.
