Ford unveiled today a collection of just five Focus RS cars in unique color schemes, each paying tribute to the Ford cars which made
’blue oval’ history at the Le Mans 24 Hours . The five cars will be seen in action at the 2010 Le Mans Classic in July.
The list of five special Focus RS models will include: a black with silver stripes edition that pays tribute to a Ford Mk II, which was victorious in 1966; a red model with white stripes that is recalling the Mk IV which won in 1967; a white model with a thin blue center stripe surrounded by a red border that pays tribute to the beautiful Ford Mk IIB, entered by Ford France in the 1967 Le Mans 24-hours; a two-tone sky blue and orange edition reference to the modern GT40s which dominated Le Mans in 1968 and 1969 and a two-tone white and blue model representing the livery of the Capri RS 2600 which took the Touring category in 1972.
All models will feature a customized interior featuring Recaro seats upholstered in leather and diamond-quilted alcantara, front and back, with stitching that matches the bodywork. They will also feature a gearshift gaiter, hand brake handle, and central arm-rest all upholstered in real leather with a leather safety belt guide for the front seats. Each of the five cars will carry a personalized numbered plaque on the dashboard confirming its exclusivity as part of the collection.
