Ford Focus RS “No Go” for the U.S. market!

focus-rs-2009-02Last month, Hermann Salenbauch, Ford’s director of advanced product creation and global performance said that Ford Motor Company is considering the possibility of bringing the Ford Focus RS to the states.

Ford is looking for “feedback from the media and customers” Salenbauch told Automotive News. “How much do they like it? Is it really what they want? We are pretty confident that it is.”

Earlier this month, a 2009 Ford Focus RS was spotted in Royal Oak, Michigan.

Now, a new report from UK’s AutoCar says that Ford will not bring the Focus RS to the United States. According to Jost Capito, who is the new head of Ford’s global performance division, selling the Focus RS in the U.S. would cost too much.

“We’d like to, but the base car isn’t homologated for North America and that’s too costly a job to carry out just for a niche vehicle like the RS,” said Capito.

What a disappointment!
