Swiss Ford preps special edition Ford Focus RS

Switzerland is known for many things, its skiing and its uber useful knives among others, but what it isn’t known for is cars. This hasn’t stopped Ford’s Swiss subsidiary rolling out a special edition Focus RS to pay tribute to the 40th anniversary of the company’s iconic RS division, exclusively for the Swiss market.

Mechanically it’s identical to the existing Focus RS but the Focus RS WRC edition is to wear a special livery submitted and chosen through an online forum. Black and green decals overlay a white background, set off by blacked-out 19″ OZ Superturismo GT alloys. In the cabin a special plaque carries the signatures of Ford’s top rally ace Mikko Hirvonen and his co-pilot Jarmo Lehtinen.

Only 50 examples will be built and sold exclusively in Switzerland. The special edtion RS will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show next month, till then you can check out the top liveries proposed in the gallery below.
